The drive for risk-based food safety management, systems and control has spread world-wide in recent decades. Since the term is still internationally undefined, its use and implementation vary, producing different realizations. In this Ph.D. thesis, microbiological risk assessment (MRA) was investigated as a basis for risk-based food safety management, which was defined as food safety management based on risk assessment in order to achieve an appropriate level of protection (ALOP). Governments are responsible for commissioning MRAs and also for setting food safety targets up to a certain point, but the practical management measures that need to be in place in order to achieve the targets are to be addressed by the operators. On the plant level, food safety is usually managed through regulation, quality assurance systems and a hazard analysis and critical control point (HACCP) programme with its prerequisites. In Finland, food safety management on the food plant level is implemented through an ...

I have been consulting in risk and safety in Adelaide for over 10 years and am often asked to help revitalise an organisations Safety Management System. Most people contact me about risk and safety issues but people rarely understand either what the problem is or where to start. So they start at systems and this seems to make sense.. An organisation that asked for help has 15 employees doing highly specialised work so they needed compliance to AS/NZS ISO 9001, 14001 and 18001, so they could operate with some Tier 1 building companies.. In my first meeting the questioning started with: What is a safety management system? What does it look like? and, How big does it have to be? There is nothing unusual here, this is generally where I start with small to medium businesses. Most often they simply want to comply but dont know where to start. One thing that stands out is and is common, is that people remain are confused by all the fear mongering and snake oil being peddled in the risk and ...

Incident reporting should ideally communicate all information relevant to patient safety. Local incident reporting systems in hospitals typically use an incident form that comprises basic clinical details and a brief description of the incident; there may be a list of designated incidents that should always be reported. Such systems are ideally used as part of an overall safety and quality improvement strategy, but in practice they may be dominated by managing claims and complaints.1 Specialty reporting systems2 and large scale systems, such as that of the UK National Patient Safety Agency (www.npsa.nhs.uk/), allow wider dissemination of lessons learnt and emphasise the need for parallel analysis and development of solutions. In this weeks BMJ a case note review by Sari and colleagues finds that local reporting systems are poor at identifying patient safety incidents, particularly those involving harm,3 echoing the findings of similar studies.4 Does this mean that these reporting systems are of ...

The NHS has launched a website dedicated to the National Patient Safety Agencys (NPSA) cleanyourhands campaign, using Swebtecs enterprise content management system, expressCMS. The cleanyourhands campaign aims to combat Healthcare Associated Infection (HCAI), which currently affects eight per cent of acute admissions to hospital. These infections can lead to delays in patient discharge of 11 days, representing 3.6 million lost bed days for the NHS, with a projected cost of £1 billion a year. According to research, incidences of HCAI can be reduced by up to 50 per cent by improving infection control procedures within hospitals including hand hygiene. Integrated into the NPSAs main website, the cleanyourhands microsite was created in three days to support the NPSAs off-line marketing campaign. The NPSA was able to create the site following the rebuilding of its internet and intranet sites by Swebtec earlier this year. Based on the expressCMS platform, the NPSA can update and control content ...

The safety culture approach to risk management emphasises the role played by social forces within an organisation and their impact on the individual operators cognitions, perceptions, and behaviour with respect to safety at work.4 Schein21 suggests that the way in which managers instruct, reward, allocate their attention, and behave under pressure are particularly important in shaping organisational culture. The perceptions of managers attitudes and behaviours in relation to safety and well being of the workforce will therefore form the basis for the safety behaviour of workers and the safety performance of the company.4 Reason5 proposed that an organisations safety culture takes on a profound significance at the point where accident rates reach a "plateau". In order to go beyond this "low but [seemingly] unassailable" plateau and to continue improvement in safety performance, it is necessary to address the hearts and minds of the management and workers.22 In high hazard and complex working ...

CSB Chairperson Dr. Rafael Moure-Eraso said, "We are pleased that API is actively addressing the issue of indicators, but believe that input from all stakeholders is necessary to develop additional more robust leading indicators to compare performance across industry. Among the most important findings of the investigation into the 2005 accident was that BP and the oil refining and chemical sectors did not have an effective system of indicators to evaluate their safety performance sufficient to determine the potential for a major catastrophe; BP and industry sectors were instead typically using personal safety indicators such as slips trips and falls to measure safety performance. Leading indicators provide data on the health of these critical safety systems before a gas release or spill occurs. Often the difference between a lagging event and a catastrophic one is merely the lack of an ignition source. Industry needs effective leading indicators capable of reducing the risks of catastrophic ...

Safety climate measures the employees perception of safety culture at their companies. According to our results, safety climate is strongly related to the workers behaviour towards safety and health at work. The safety climate concept was first proposed by Zohar,4 and its measurement in this study has been based on the components proposed by this author and by further works.6,14 Items in our questionnaire could be categorised in three main components: managements prevention policy (items 1-6), rank and status of safety officers (items 7-8), and company safety practices (items 9-11).

The advice we give to members in the Guide to Safe Practice, an internal document which contextualises the provisions of the Code of Safe Practice, is:.

We recommend that in each individual case you follow the individual guidelines the patient has been given by their consultant.. We would leave it to someones professional judgement about when it would ...

Using the safety metric data you and other Circle members provide, your company has the ability to benchmark its progress against other industry leaders committed to safe operations, and to become part of a network for the sharing of safety best practices.
