  • We have poor reporting history on near misses, accidents, and plant damage and it seems that lessons are not being learned

  • We’ve seen delays in product and production schedules as a result of safety issues
  • We’re not carrying out periodic inspections

  • Performance is being measured and we are now looking to learn from events when things do go wrong
  • We’re getting our documentation in good shape
  • We regularly undertake safety training with our workforce
  • We still struggle to get everyone in the company engaged in safety
