||This report describes a working model integrating human factors (HF), safety management systems (SMS), risk control (RC) and wider organizational issues, with a focus on major chemical major hazards. Eight major accidents were analysed. Repeated failure patterns were found which were represented as four specific combinations of components from the HF, SMS, RC and organization taxonomy, each combination defined by a theme. The four themes were: understanding of major accident prevention; competence for tasks; priorities, attention and conflict resolution; assurance. These themes were used for developing chemical hazard stakeholder priorities during a one-day workshop.
