Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has published free advice on the safety
implications of organisational change in hazardous industries.
Organisational change and
major accident hazards is aimed primarily at the chemical and petrochemical
industries, though operators of railways and nuclear installations may also
find the information useful when involved in planning or implementing changes
to their business.
The guidance focuses on change at operational and site
level, but is also relevant to changes at corporate level, which can have a
significant impact on safety across the business.
