Health and Safety Vision

Graham Marshall - Tuesday, April 05, 2011

Today I'd like to talk about my health and safety vision.  It's what I'm passionate about. 

To do this, I'll answer three rhetorical questions.

Firstly, what is my vision?

I am passionate about the Think 6, Look 6 hazard and risk management process.  I'm passionate about it because it is the only way to manage all hazards in activity and process safety areas of business and homelife.

My vision is to have Think 6, Look 6 embedded in every business, organization and home so we can all be safer.

Secondly, how can I assist you to achieve a safer way of working and living in a way that no one else is doing?

I recognise that there is only one hazard and risk management process.  Think  6, Look 6 is the best and simplest way to describe the process in theory and in action. 

Look 6 - six dimensions - look around you - that's up, down, left, right, front and behind.  Six dimensions to study. 

Think 6 - that's six bits of information. 

1.    What are the hazards around you? 

2.    What triggers will release the hazards? 

3.    What incident (accident) could occur to you? 

4.    What will be the consequences of the accident? 

5.    How will you control the hazards and triggers?

6.    How will you minimize the consequences and recover the situation?

So if you put Think 6 together with Look 6 it provides the process to follow in every hazard and risk management tool.

Thirdly, how is using Think 6, Look 6 more worthwhile than following someone else’s vision?

Simple - Think 6, Look 6 is  the best and simplest way of encapsulating the hazard and risk management process.  It's the easiest way to ensure the process is embedded in every hazard and risk management tool that people are using.  Same process every time.

It doesn't matter whether you're doing simple hazard spotting (e.g., Take 5 or Stepback); if you're preparing a JSA or JHA; if you're undertaking a risk assessment; doing a Hazop Study; an incident investigation; or even a HSE observation as part of a beavioural safety program. 

Think 6, Look 6
is the foundation on which risk management is built and I've put the process into every tool on this website.

Think 6, Look 6 makes risk management understandable to everyone.

Ask yourself, can you understand it now?
