TS1 - OSH resilience and sustainability in enterprises

Resilient organizations have the capacity to anticipate, monitor, respond and learn, especially in the face of unexpected challenges. As an emerging concept, resilience in OSH management holds the potential to enhance an organization’s capacity to respond to unexpected and complex risk management situations, by improving the number of things that go right, rather than by reducing the number of things that go wrong. The Technical Session will discuss this potential paradigm shift including the potential application of engineering principles to enhance safety management systems.
