reputation and brand. Marsh Risk Consulting’s (MRC)

The Global Safety Excellence
Assessment is a systematic, dataoriented
approach to support
achievement of company social and
risk management goals. The core
safety and health assessment is
based on MRC’s Safety Performance
Excellence platform, and
incorporates key OHSAS 18001
requirements. It was developed by
our global network of experienced
safety and health consultants to
assure consistency that allows
comparison between company units. At
the same time, assessments are framed in a manner that allows for recognition of country-specific
differences in implementation.
The GSEA flexible assessment infrastructure accommodates the
unique issues challenging global organizations today. MRC‘s
leading edge technology combined with a network of seasoned
global consultants provides you with a meaningful third-party
evaluation of your success in your global efforts to meet
Flexible, Modular Format
To begin the process of assessment development, the MRC
project manager will work with you to understand which
corporate goals you wish to evaluate on a global basis. Then we
either customize criteria developed by the MRC global network
to your unique exposures and operations, input your own
assessment into our software, or develop an assessment that is a
hybrid of the two approaches. The final assessment tool will
assure that our consultants and your staff, even with diverse
backgrounds and knowledge levels on the topic being reviewed,
consistently implement your core business strategies.
The GSEA is supported by a third party software. Our
consultants can easily create new or customize existing audits or
assessments of any kind. We can provide your staff with printed
blank assessments if you prefer to use a combination of our staff
and your own to perform the evaluations. We will then input the
team’s assessment findings into the software so that we can run
findings reports for targeted audiences.
You must purchase a software license if you want to input your
own assessment findings, run on-demand reports, and/or utilize
the powerful action planning and task assignment functionality of
the audit software.
Guidance for Global Operations
The assessment documentation provides guidance to
geographically dispersed locations. Site visits are more efficient
as global operations are aware of what will be measured and how it will be evaluated, and can prioritize efforts and prepare
required documentation. The ability to self-evaluate supports
continuous improvement efforts between assessment cycles.
Report templates enable timely dissemination of selected information
to target audiences. Graphical information displays enhance clarity
and reader understanding, whether year-over-year results for an
individual location or a comparison of sites to each other.
The GSEA Advantage
The GSEA provides global organizations with an opportunity to define
objectives for a world-class corporate program, clarify expectations
that can increase the likelihood of compliance with program goals,
credibly monitor and manage large quantities of collected information
through action plan tracking using limited corporate staff, and
effectively meet the commitments made to stakeholders.
