How can we create a structure in which safety simply becomes “the way we do things around here”?
Most modern day shipping companies have complied with the requirements of the ISM code with a systems-based approach to safety. This did have a positive impact on how shipping companies approached safety, but in many cases did not focus on the human behaviour element.
The effects of a systems-based approach have plateaued; therefore the human element is now under focus as an area where the safety performance of companies can be improved. Safety management needs to be upgraded to version 2.0.
You can find a variety of information and guidance under the umbrella of Safety Management 2.0. This will assist in improving the safety behaviour, safety awareness and safety culture at all levels of the organisation.
By ensuring that systems and people work in harmony, safe work becomes “the way we do things around here”
