Health and safety in Asset management (KBAM)
The presentation about situation awareness gave us a lot of knowledge about why an organization should manage its assets to ensure the health and safety of all the people of the organization. A lot of accidents can result if the organization doesn't take active measures to manage this aspect of the assets. This area of asset management is very important as the safety and well being of all the people of the organization comes above any business goals that the company has.
To ensure the health and safety of its people there are many steps that an organization can take. It needs to make all of its people aware of the potential accidents that can happen and train them about the precautionary measures. It can give safety equipment to all of its people, it can make its machinery safe for human use, it can install backup measures in case accidents happen. There are many ways to cover this area of asset management. The important thing is to clearly think about all the possible situations and scenarios which can lead to accidents and then think about the preventive measures to avoid them from happening. The leaders of the organization should specifically think about all of its assets in this way and implement the health and safety measures accordingly.
