PSLG principles of process safety leadership

Representatives of Britain's high hazard industries, regulators and the unions have published for the first time a set of principles for 'process safety leadership' – top-level engagement in dealing with significant risks to people and the environment.  

The agreement sets out eight principles for senior industry figures to follow, including requiring board level involvement and competence in safety management, putting process safety leadership at the core of a business to ensure risks are properly managed, and engaging and involving the workforce in managing safety.
