The Executive Safety Solutions approach builds on two main pillars: safety leadership and safety management. Safety leadership is about operational leadership taking ownership of the systems and processes in place, bringing them to the people, and motivating people to use them on the journey towards improved safety performance. Safety management stands for developing and putting the structures, systems and processes in place to manage safety effectively. We believe that both elements are critical and mutually interdependent, and that a gradual and synchronised optimisation of both is the route to success.

Executive Safety Framework

The Executive Safety Framework provides a very clear insight in the processes required to manage safety for large and geographically dispersed organisations. The framework shows both the core and the secondary processes required, as well as the dynamics between them. Safety leaders understand what systems and processes are required to successfully manage safety, and how to implement these systems and processes within their organisations.

Executive Safety Maturity Assessment/Model

The Executive Safety Maturity Model is a world-class and continuously updated model providing insights into the current HSE maturity of a corporation and its strategic and/or operational units.
It is based on in-depth field assessments, interviews with stakeholders and process/document reviews. The maturity assessment and its related report provide an ideal basis for developing a safety improvement strategy. The maturity model includes both the safety leadership and the safety management aspects of managing safety.

Risk Management Tree

The Risk Management Tree gives a clear overview of the elements required to manage safety on the ground.The model builds on the principles of risk management, as a basis for managing safety at the operational level. Having an effective risk identification and risk assessment process in place is the foundation for successful safety management.
Based on risk assessments, Standard Operating Procedures or Permits are drafted. These are a basis for training and instructing people prior to the start of the work. Supervisory field presence and support is required before, during and after a task has been completed to ensure that the processes in place are also applied on the ground.
On the ground, safety leadership is critical to guide and drive the transition from “documented safety” to safe practices and safe behaviour.
Finally, field findings and process reviews are the foundation for a powerful optimisation process.
