Leadership & Culture, Principles & Professionalism, Simplicity & Safety - Lessons from the Nimrod Review

The Hon. Mr Justice Haddon-Cave – speaking at Hazards 26

A giant of the legal world, Mr Justice Haddon-Cave led the inquiry into the circumstances of the fatal crash of the RAF's Nimrod XV230 aircraft whilst on routine operations in Afghanistan in 2006. The RAF operated the aircraft under a safety case regime, similar in principle to that used by the oil and gas sector. According to Mr Haddon-Cave, the observations and recommendations from his inquiry provide, "a once in a generation opportunity" to learn valuable lessons that can be applied to all sectors and remind us that "safety is everyone's responsibility".
