Abstract [en]

Safety management is a crucial activity in maintaining acceptable safety levels of large hazardous industrial facilities. Risk analysis and safety engineering are two important activities of safety management by which safe designs of such facilities can be achieved. A continued safety during the operation of the facilities relies furthermore on successful and efficient experience feedback and management of change. Activities in safety management build on a control metaphor by which control loops built into the technical, peoples and organisational systems ensure safety of the facilities. In this paper we take a closer look on concepts of control theory to investigate their relationships with safety management. A conclusion of the paper is that the control metaphor provides useful insights in suggesting requirements to be placed on safety management. The paper draws on experience from the Vattenfall Safety Management Institute (SMI), which started its operation in 2006.
