This is an extract of the supporting information & guidance cards from the IOGP Process Safety Fundamentals documented in their Report 638.

  • We proactively look for indicators or signals that suggest future problems.
  • We speak up about potential issues even if we are not sure they are important.
  • We persistently explore the causes of changing indicators or unusual situations.

Tips for Managers:

  • Be alert to weak signals and respond pro-actively when these signals are raised.

This page only summarises the guidance – refer to the IOGP report and/or IOGP website for further information.
