Course Overview

Introduction

Safety Management has come under significant scrutiny in the light of recent disasters. However, the concept of Safety Management Systems is usually limited to the systematic approach and not to the holistic (all aspect) approach. Safety Management must envelop both the hard and soft aspects of safety to produce a remarkable result.

Health and Safety has to be managed with the same level of skill and to the same standards as other core business activities because of the high cost of failures; Legislation requiring employers to evaluate and manage risks; Public opinion on risk acceptability moving against poorly managed organisations which impose excessive risks and high-profile disasters which fuel public opinion.
