Preventing Serious Injuries and Fatalities – Eight Steps to Manage Hazardous Energy in Facilities
We are convinced the vast majority of successful endeavors to save lives and quality of life begins with following the energy – a comprehensive canvassing of facilities for the sources of potentially lethal energy.
Despite breakthroughs more than a decade ago highlighting the different character of fatalities and serious injuries (FSIs or SIFs) compared with less consequential incidents, the worst accidents have remained stubbornly resistant to prevention. The patterns during the intervening years further validated those essential findings and demonstrated the struggles most leadership teams encounter in learning from them.
In this White Paper we discuss the historical challenges of managing safety in addressing FSI exposure, as well as cover the eight steps to identify, assess, predict and manage how FSI events in industrialized assets can be avoided.
