Safeguard: Safety Barrier Management Webinar

REGISTER Safeguard: Safety Barrier Management Webinar


Since the Texas City disaster in 2005, major-accident industries are increasingly aware that existing indicators for monitoring HSE performance often have limited value when monitoring major-accident risks. While many have tried to identify better indicators for major accidents, few have attempted to create a more generic methodology for identifying indicators.

The integrated Safeguard methodology for identification and follow up of major-accident risk indicators, which is built upon the foundation of BORA and Risk OMT models, considers human and organizational factors into quantitative risk analysis. A key element in the methodology is to identify indicators not only related to operations and technical systems directly, but also to planning processes and other preconditions.

In this complimentary webinar, we will discuss this safety barrier management approach and explain how it establishes a risk-based model of factors that influence the probability of a major-accident scenario.

What You Will Learn:


Ole Magnus Nyheim is Senior Safety Advisor and Discipline Leader of Risk Monitoring at Safetec, an ABS Group company. Nyheim has an MSc in sociology from Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), and is a specialist in safety in the intersection between man, organization and technology, with emphasis on underlying causes of accidents. He is currently very involved in Safetec's integrated barrier management projects, including the development of a method for identifying and follow up major accident risk indicators.
