Culture & Capability in High Reliability Organizations

Organizational Culture and Capability represent two critical components inherent to organizations that manage catastrophic risk effectively. Both are difficult to describe and enforce by government authorities. Culture is what people do in response to deeply held values of the organization. Capability is the combined skills, experience, and expertise that people have in the organization. Unlike other components within a risk-based program model, Organizational Culture and Capability are incapable of operating in an organizational silo. They exist and interact with each element, whether the facility recognizes them or not. Culture and Capability are the glue that holds a Process Safety program together.
