Why? - Because the absence of unacceptable risks is our second basic need after eating and sleeping. Many of us have been fortunate enough and got used to it until they forgot its name: Safety.
A Safety Management System is an analytic and structured approach enabling organizations and entrepreneurs to control their risks. Control means that you decide if the risk is worth taking. And if you are going for it, a perfectly legitimate decision, it guides you on how you can minimize its negative impact: Something we all do intuitively. The difference here is that a system achieves an analytic and structured approach, hence relieving unnecessary pressure in strategic decision-making.
