Managing Major Accident Hazard Risks


Organisational, technological and process changes often happen for reasons other than to reduce risk. The challenge for those people planning change is to ensure that these changes improve or maintain safety and environmental performance both during and after the change process. Every change, whether organisational or technical, will have implications for risk controls and therefore safety, such as changes in workloads, systems of work, management roles and priorities. The first objectives should be to ensure safety is maintained during and after the transition; then there is an opportunity to challenge current safety performance and set targets for improvement.
