2009 Safety & Training Roadmap

Accepting the safety and training goals in PERC’s current strategic plan as a call to assess its own achievements, re-evaluate industry needs, and look for ways to expand its contribution, the Safety & Training Advisory Committee (STAC) developed the 2009 Propane Safety and Training Roadmap a strategic framework to guide its activities and allocation of resources through 2012.

The strategic framework identifies two imperatives: to continue the development of STAC's core of expertise and value with respect to workforce safety training and to leverage this core to extend STAC's outreach to consumer safety organizations, trade groups, and emergency responders.

The framework also incorporates a set of three outreach principles:

•    Make use of strategic partnerships – leverage efforts and resources by capitalizing on partnerships, collaborations, and network relationships, particularly with other PERC advisory committees, marketers, secondary market contacts, agencies, associations, and industry groups.

•    Repurpose rather than re-create – look for ways to meet outreach needs by adapting and repurposing its current programs, before considering solutions that entail the development of entirely new programs.

•    Stay true to STAC's mission and competencies – exercise care to stay true to the scope of STAC's core competencies and mission when reaching out to meet the needs of those outside the propane industry.
