Organisations struggle with safety management competency
Most organisations have a reasonable understanding of the concept of individual safety competency, but struggle to truly understand the concept and application of safety as an organisational competency, according to a state transport regulator.
Given the uncertainty and unpredictability of damage created by individual cyclones, employers in cyclone-sensitive regions have been urged by regulators to apply extreme caution with regard to exposing workers to the dangers associated with cyclones.
Conventional risk management methods alone may not be sufficient to identify failures in complex subsea systems, such as the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill, according to Morten Nilstad Pettersen, a risk management consultant at Scandpower AS.
