Creating a Catastophic Incident Prevention Culture

Creating a Catastrophic Incident Prevention Culture

Catastrophic Occupational & Process Safety Incidents usually occur after a series of early warning signals, often subtle, are overlooked. Some organizations have been very successful in avoiding catastrophic events, even in environments with high risk factors and complex operations. Known as Highly Reliable Organizations, these operations have developed cultures that embrace the concepts of Anticipation, Questioning, Diligence, Resilience, and Learning – leading to significant improvement in the detection of and response to early warning signals.

Tools exist for identification of incident precursors to these disastrous events. These tools provide powerful insights, allowing leaders to develop a comprehensive approach to catastrophic incident prevention.

  • Participants will become aware of Highly Reliable Organization Theory which allows organizations to deliver outstanding safety results in the face of high risk and complex operational environments.
