Description: Process safety is everybody’s responsibility. However, safety managers and engineers often have a much better understanding of its importance and how it is affected by strategic management decisions than the top-level managers and directors making these decisions. This presentation shows how management decisions impact major hazard risks – and shares practical strategies on making such decisions. Sustainable business success rests on safe operation – and the process of getting that right starts in the boardroom. Those in the boardroom should understand the importance and impact of their decisions.
