Management of critical risks

Instead of focusing on stopping work when it is dangerous (stop work authority), perhaps we should explore a different approach and only start work when all critical controls are in place for our critical risks. Paul will discuss:

  • Are the things that cause fatalities different to the things that injure people?
  • Do we spend too much of our time and resources on the ‘low hanging fruit’ and not enough time on our critical risks and potential high-consequence events?
  • Do we engage with our people at the sharp end of the risk enough to ensure appropriate controls – what needs to go right in our high-risk operations? Are they in place for our critical risks?
  • When something goes wrong, what factors will eliminate fatalities and on review, are those critical controls enough?

Thematic roundtables are 40-minute-long interactive discussions in small groups. Moderated by seasoned industry experts and practitioners, select one of our insightful discussions to get new and actionable ideas and share experiences with your peers.
