  • THE CONTEXT

    SAFETY IN DESIGN STAKEHOLDERS IN A GLOBAL OPERATION

    Stakeholder model: adapted from Winch, 2010

    With 40000 people, AMEC Foster Wheeler currently operate in approximately 55 countries.

  • THE KEY CHALLENGES FOR A DIVERSE TEAM

    The structure of decision making

    Leadership choice of direct versus indirect communication

    Misinterpretation of information (including language barriers)

    Issues with hierarchy and authority (upwards, downwards and horizontally)

    Inconsistent approaches to Safety in Design (SiD)

  • THE KEY RECOMMENDATIONS

    Understand the key risks (previous page) and develop action plans

    Put a team together but not just for experience but also relevant knowledge

    Have leading indicators in the communication network

    SiD to be directly linked with design change management processes to ensure

    ongoing assessment and management of emergent OHS risks, and

    Last but not the least, communicate, then communicate it differently and then

    make sure you have communicated!
