||Safety management in different high-risk domains - All the same?
||2011, 10p. Illus. 60 ref.
||Safety_management.pdf [in English]
||The aim of this article is to discuss what different high-risk industries can learn from each other and what limits for generalizing safety management methods within and across industries exist. After presenting core components of safety management, attributes crucial to any organization's functioning are described, which also affect the way safety management systems should be designed, run and assessed. By discussing safety management in the context of these attributes, contingencies are outlined that can help decision-makers in companies tailor safety management to their own situation and support regulators in drawing up and evaluating safety management requirements for different industries while also promoting learning between different high-risk domains. Standards and procedures, safety training, incident reporting and investigation, and safety culture are taken as examples to illustrate why and how different aspects of organizational functioning should be taken into account when designing and evaluating safety management systems or elements thereof.
