ALACRITY Safety Management Review

Let's talk about real safety...

Safety management systems need to be maintained, monitored and their effectiveness measured. Even with internal audit processes, sampling and the use of repetitive audit templates there can be an impression that evolving issues have been taken care of which often leads to complacency developing within an organisation. It is paramount that when operational changes occur, the safety management system must evolve to reflect the new reality; if not, safety management controls can become weakened or compromised resulting in:

  • The behaviours of employees deviating from what should be expected
  • Internal audit methodologies delivering consistently non-critical messages to management
  • Risk identification and assessment methodologies not being consistently managed or are completed with an expectation bias

ALACRITY has been designed as an independent management resource to complement the safety management review process, it does not replace the existing internal review process but adds to it.

Ensuring that the continual improvement process keeps safety management system controls relevant and up to date is a difficult but necessary task within an organisation. However, the time demands on top management can be significant and therefore safety management can become just another one of the myriad issues that has to be managed.

Why Alacrity?

How does Alacrity help top management have confidence that their existing safety auditing processes are in fact providing the data that is needed to effectively examine and continually refine safety management?

  • By providing top managers with a new and innovative audit approach which starts by looking at an organisation's safety management system with a sceptical eye and...
  • Then by independently assessing whether existing safety management arrangements are conforming to requirements; are suitable; are sufficient and are being complied with.

How can management stay 'plugged-in' to the real safety-state of their operations?

  • By using Alacrity to provide an independent audit resource that can remain separate but can be run in parallel with current internal or external audit programmes and...
  • By using Alacrity's wide range of functional auditing options (e.g. by facility, by process, by safety management element or combinations of these).
