"Unlike traditional approaches to safety, our vision of safety management assumes that due to the complexity of organizations and the environment, procedures are not always up-to-date or appropriate. When there are deviations from the rules, it is seen as a reason to analyse the situation rather than as a violation." Robert J. de Boer, Author of the book "Safety Leadership: A Different, Doable and Directed Approach to Operational Improvements" and Professor of Safety Management at SDO University of Applied Sciences in the Netherlands, will talk about the gap between Work-as-Done and Work-as-Imagined.

"We defer judgement and seek to understand how work is actually done, especially when conditions are challenging, and resources are scarce. We create a framework of rules together with the front line and then empower them to take responsibility for any exceptions."
