Alphabet Soup – The Murky Side of Safety

ust the sound of all the acronyms used in safety makes me need a lie down and a bex. JSA, SWMS, SOP, WI, AFARP, ALARP, HAZOP, ICAM……
Not only is the use of acronyms effective at shutting “non-safety” people out of safety, they are usually used so loosely and exchangeably that they lose all meaning.
So I am speaking at the AIHS Visions Conference in September to try and bring some “common” sense to this jumble of terms and shine a light on what they really mean, the processes behind them, and most importantly do they WORK!
I am really looking forward to catching up with people so I hope to see you there.
