Our Mission

  1. Work collaboratively to build a pervasive culture of safe behaviours and promote learning by sharing information and good practices.
  2. Simplify, standardise and embed consistent industry requirements and develop practical, effective solutions that have industry-wide application.

 Guiding Principles

  • Focus on leadership and behaviour - the safety culture of our Industry is open, respectful, demonstrates care and is able to deal with difficult issues. We all act as safety leaders.

  • Focus on high consequence / life altering risks.

  • Think innovatively – harness the power of the collective to drive step change improvements.

  • Simplify – engage the workforce and embed what we have; carry out detailed prioritisation of initiatives; establish meaningful measures; complete the feedback loop
  • Focus on members’ people – provide on-the-ground implementation support, fit for purpose products and services that are beneficial, and share timely information to promote effective learning.
