Planning for safety

A safety plan is a critical project management element. It is possible to create one which not only fulfills legal and organizational requirements, but is designed to enhance productivity as well.The article discusses the plan inputs which must be considered when drafting a safety plan, such as the standards, norms, and regulations to apply, ergonomic considerations, and a review of the existing risk management plan to isolate specific safety factors and risks.Fault tree analyses can be used to show the exact combination of events necessary for an accident to occur, and thus, to calculate the probability of system failure.Numerous tools of safety planning are discussed, among them, the WBS and work deliverables; the use of Job Hazard Analysis (JHA), Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA), and Hazard and Operability Method (HAZOP).
