Common Safety Management System Implementation Mistakes
#1 Implementing a system is different from implementing a program
Improving a management system isn’t like implementing a program. When implementing a program like confined space, the organization must identify and post confined spaces, establish a permitting procedure, secure the necessary equipment, train the appropriate personnel and monitor activities. It is relatively straight forward and lends itself to a checklist approach. A management system is different. None of the elements of a management system stand alone. Each and every element is dependent on other elements for its proper performance.
Traditional gap analysis is very dangerous. The elements and requirements of a standard are listed and It is based on the invalid assumption that if all the parts (in this case system elements) are present the system will function effectively.
System performance is not the sum of the parts….
Integer tempus, elit in laoreet posuere, lectus neque blandit dui, et placerat urna diam mattis orci. Aliquam bibendum, turpis eu mattis iaculis, ex lorem mollis sem, ut sollicitudin risus orci quis tellus.
System performance is the product of their interactions
Maecenas non leo laoreet, condimentum lorem nec, vulputate massa. Vivamus sit amet semper lacus, in mollis libero.
