Hazards are constantly identified through reactive, proactive and predictive sources and underlying methods of safety information collection. Following collection and identification, hazard information is assessed in terms of consequences, and priorities and responsibilities regarding mitigation responses and strategies. All the information, must be collected into the “safety library” of the organization. The product of the “safety library” is not only the preservation of the corporate safety memory, but the safety library becomes a source of safety knowledge to be used as reference for organizational safety decision-making. The safety knowledge incorporated in the “safety library” provides feedback and control reference against which to measure hazard analysis and consequences management, as well as the efficiency of the sources or methods of safety information collection. It also provides material for safety trend analyses, as well as for safety education purposes (safety bulletins, reports, seminar and the like).
