Leadership Excellence for Safety & Health (LES&H)
"Human Failure ..." is communicated so often as the final cause of an accident. And - resigned - accecpted. And, therefore, no additional controls are planned, verified, implemented and followed-up.
Foster effective leadership to sustainably reduce critical incidents.
Helping our customers to control the effects of their uncertainties on their goals/projects (= risks) as pro-actively as possible. And developing a validated "Plan B", a safe way out if - and when - risks might materialize and/or desasters might strike.
