Health And Safety Gap Analysis
o Ensure internal reporting of all high risk procedure-activity near miss and injury
incidents and conduct incident investigation and root cause analysis, as appropriate.
Action needed:
Change Management:
o Define change requiring management review. Communicate this process to all
affected employees, contractors and other stakeholders.
o Develop a change management procedure that defines the ‘who, what, when and
how’ for the reviews. Define who is authorized to approve change actions.
o Ensure that the procedure includes provisions to verify that change management
actions have been completed and that they do not significantly result in new,
negative risk.
o Integrate change management actions into the safety and health communication
process to ensure all potentially affected parties are knowledgeable.
o Document change management decisions for tracking and verification purposes, and
for future reference.
o Pre-start up safety reviews should be conducted on all new operations, expansions,
processing facilities, major mobile and fixed equipment and control systems.
o Ensure that change management is fully integrated with Fatality Prevention & Risk
Management.

Action needed:
Engineering & Construction:
o Safety and health management, operations and maintenance expertise are
integrated into project planning processes from the inception.
o Where engineering and design codes and standards and/or regulatory compliance
are inadequate or absent, management should develop its own with external
validation.
o Design and construction for any project with safety and health management
considerations should target regulatory as the minimal allowable risk.
o Deviations from standard and accepted design are reviewed and approved by senior
management. Variances are documented with adequate justification details.
o The S&H management aspects of construction work conducted on company
property should conform to the company’s SHMS standards and expectations.
o Pre-start up safety review should be conducted on all new operations, mines,
processing facilities, major mobile and fixed equipment, and control systems.

Action needed:
Safe Work Procedures & Permits:
o Standard operating procedures (SOPs) are developed for routine and repeated non-
routine work based on work procedures and outcomes of systematic job and task
(SJT) analyses.
o SOPs are used as the basis for on-the-job training and audited against by front line
supervisor or managers. Competency verifications are also based on SOPs.
o General and specialized S&H rules should be developed, communicated to all
employees and contractors and enforced through a fair and equitable disciplinary
policy.
o Risk-specific and/or general work permit program should cover all high risk work
(whether routine or non-routine) and include sign-off authority and operational
limitations.
o Protocols (more detailed SOPs) should be developed for high-risk tasks that warrant
the highest level of control owing to the difficulty in minimizing risk and high
consequences.
o Ensure all contractors and vendors are trained on and comply with the work permit
and safe work procedure requirements.

Action needed:
Training & Competence:
o Conduct training needs assessment for all jobs. Training programs should define the
skill level to be acquired and demonstrated, frequency, and requirements for
competency.
