This document focuses on the pro-active actions and behaviours that may be exercised by managers of operations and site leadership teams to help eliminate the risk of fatalities.
Leadership Matters maintains that leaders set the tone and direction of “What is Important” through visible and felt leadership.
It presents a series of self-diagnostic prompts, built around an internationally recognized risk management framework, to assist in identifying gaps in safety management systems.
Leadership Matters: Managing Fatal Risk Guidance should be read in conjunction with ICMM's earlier report aimed at Chief Executives and corporate leaders - Leadership Matters: The elimination of fatalities.
Both reports provide checklist-based advice on three key themes:
• Live the vision of zero fatalities
• Focus on high potential events
• Recognize the fallibility of people and systems
