Event description

Description

A key aspect of ensuring health and safety of people at work is building the resilience of the organisation to withstand a safety shocks – that is, to have a safe outcome notwithstanding a failure of a safety particular control. If a system is so vulnerable that all it takes is one thing going wrong for an injury to occur, it's not much of a system. This session will explore how to build up the resilience of the system – the layers of Swiss cheese – that prevent an event from resulting into an incident.

In this Safe Work Month presentation, WHS laws expert Michael Tooma will explore this with reference to 20 essential elements of a safety management system.
