The Shephard Group (DBA)

We focus on process and operational safety areas that are among the most challenging contributors to major accidents.  These areas also tend to be lagging, e.g., framing, design development, and tools. One initiative nearing completion is a first-of-kind lifecycle model that applies to active human barriers and safety critical tasks.  Information, guidance documents and tools from HPOG, recognized global experts, and other industry organizations provided the constructs and material used to guide this effort.  HPOG participation provides insight into areas of deemed interest and current thinking, and prompt access to information and newly developed guidance in focus areas.
