CATCH Week: joining up safety management

As part of CATCH Week, Reynolds Training Services is participating in a joint event on Tuesday 26th September with Engineering Safety Consultants & Lorraine Braben Consulting. The trio of safety experts are set to explore how joined-up thinking can bring together different elements of safety management.

From functional safety design to reliable people performance

There are so many different aspects to managing safety systems that it’s not always clear how they all hang together at times. There’s lots of talk about taking Human Factors into account but what does that actually mean? As part of Catch Week, we invite you to an informative and interactive event which will provide an example of how joined up thinking will bring different elements of safety management together and how that translates into designing systems which will help your people do the right thing when it really counts.
