Platform Statement

I am asking your support to consider my position as candidate for Administrator Global Operations Practice Specialty. There have been many challenges this year, therefore, collaboration in global partnerships is critical. This practice specialty is a prominent avenue. Everyone may not agree on how to reconstruct our group - our principles and ideology determine the standards we establish to engage. Technology and AI in safety will play a part as will learning best practices from across borders. 

Upon reflection; we want to belong to a progressive and rising ASSP Practice Specialty. However, we at Global Operations PS have been on probation for an extended time, which pragmatically, will take concerted effort and time to resolve. Fortunately, as Administrator, I have prior experience with Management Practice Specialty which was assembled and invigorated back up again. I plan to work for you and deliver a successful cohesive team. At the start, the effectiveness of Global Operations PS depends on the level of synergy and inclusiveness we can bring about within the group. We will work without coercion and domination in sharing 45001; each one has a role; a choice to participate wholeheartedly on the standard. Global Operations PS is a great platform to adopting our methodologies from headquarters across different geographies. 

We are accountable to achieve in a responsible manner. Develop of trending matters to facilitate best practices and professional relationships. Our task to increase membership by mentoring others – we will be recognized and attract new persons to Global Operations.

Thank you and I look forward to your support.
