Integrated safety, health and environmental management: An introduction

Integrated safety, health and environmental management

Introduction

Life is full of risk. We encounter many uncalculated outcomes, some beneficial and others adverse. Businesses, especially in the financial context, often consider risk in terms of opportunities for gain. Risk in our context is a way of describing the probability and consequences of harm, or at worst a disaster. Risk management involves many stakeholders who can themselves influence the risks facing an organisation. Integrated management systems help ensure that safety, quality, environmental and business risks are managed right across an organisation. An integral part of management systems is emergency preparedness – the management of emergencies and disasters.
