IRM – Integrated Risk Management Workshop for Senior Management


Safety is a line management function, and although this cliché is still widely used, very few practitioners, both in the field of Safety, Risk and Production always understand the enormity and complexity of this statement.

It is a widely accepted phenomenon in the field of Risk and Safety Management that an improvement in Safety results involves more than just changing the behavior and attitudes of the people at the ‘sharp end’ of the equation, i.e. the worker levels, but requires critical involvement of management to ensure sustainable ‘’Organizational Behaviour Modification”

Although scientists in this field all emphasizes the crucial role of trust, behavior and attitude in managing Safety, they are also underlying the crucial role that systems play in moving forward.

In essence, this course acknowledges and supports the philosophy that Safety Improvement is a journey, rather than a set of loose ‘initiatives’ with a typical ‘flavour of the month’ approach. This journey has some specific milestones and enables on the critical path of sustainable improvement. It is about moving from basic systems and processes to a level of resilience, where Safety becomes a way of life.
