Distinguished Lecturer Glenn Lyle on Global Trends in Safety Risk Management and Use of Critical Controls
Abstract: The elimination of fatalities is the priority safety goal of most mining companies. To accomplish this, organizations are moving beyond Behavioural Based Safety. The new approach combines the requirement for correct behaviours with a strong systematic approach identifying and mitigating hazards. In a systematic process; a company needs to analyze the hazards, determine the risks, mitigate the risks and then manage the controls. Many companies are also now moving to employing a control management system, in particular for Critical Controls. The talk will focus on the various aspects of these steps: discussion on risk assessment types, systematic application of risk assessment, development of risk assessment procedures, determining risk tolerance, the use of a layered approach to Risk Management, use of a Safety Maturity Model, and the use of Critical controls.
