Safety Case Workforce Involvement


The assumption that the workforce should be involved in a safety case has generally been taken to mean that the workforce must review the safety case before it is finalised and submitted to the HSE. However, such reviews can often be superficial and have limited workforce participation. Notwithstanding the legal requirement to involve ESRs, it is evident that involving the workforce will lead to the production of a better safety case and a workforce with an improved understanding of the safety case, its structure and contents as well as an increased understanding of their asset’s MAHs.

The purpose of this technical note is to provide industry with good practice on how to:

  • Involve the workforce including ESRs in the preparation, revision and review of safety cases.

•   Raise awareness of MAH management, which is a key aim of the safety case legalisation.

•   Demonstrate the involvement of the workforce in the safety case.
