Resources companies are being increasingly encouraged to adopt 'High Reliability Organisation principles' as part of a journey towards improved safety and health, and other outcomes. But what, exactly, does this mean? And how can higher reliability be achieved?
The High Reliability Organisations (HRO) Forum will synthesize the 34 year history of HRO research, before exploring key practical issues including: the role of leadership in entrenching a culture of high reliability; implications for regulators; coupling innovation with high reliability; measuring reliability; and developing a HRO roadmap.
The Forum will draw on research leaders from across UQ's Schools of Psychology, Business, and Law; as well as subject matter experts from within the SMI itself.
This event is hosted by The University of Queensland's Sustainable Minerals Institute (SMI); and supported by Kate du Preez, the Commissioner for Resources Safety and Health, BHP, BMA and Anglo American.
