Healty and safety made me think about all my past work experience. There were many examples of people getting injured in my work in the customs bourder. There were poor working conditions and mostly, the truck drivers were the people who got injured in work. In this example the truck drivers supposed to be the customers. But, in this case there is no other way to do their work in my bourder, being the only bourder between Iraq and Kuwait. I think it was easy to inform people about what happen in the past and to try to avoid it. This depended on the leaders responsibility. Here the leader engagement was poor and needed to improve in order to avoid accidents. Other problem was represented by the fact that the leader worked in the Goverment system, where there no stron overall H&S policy. All this culture difference is complicated and it seems to be different from the UK where H&S is important.
Do we trust camels? Is it a safe working environment. How can H&S be developed in the desert? I think in this situation knowledge managment is required. Any person to come in contact with the camel should know as much as possible about the camel. This is stored as tacit knowledge in the mind of the owner, it is his expertise. So he must distribute and share this knowledge to anyone and everyone else.
