Industry leadership challenge


Shaping and supporting an organisational
culture which embraces and values inherent
safety to effectively manage risk, by:
Early application;
Minimising hazards at their source;
Designing out hazards in preference to designing in
control measure complexity;
Ensuring systems fail safe when things go wrong.
