Global Safety Index Advisory Board member, Professor Jim Joy, has been in and around risk management for decades. Jim has a long CV of working mostly within the Mining Sector around the world in how to better manage risk management. Jim was one of the authors of the International Council on Mining and Minerals (ICMM) Critical Control Management Guide published in 2015. Since that time Jim has been at the forefront of the application of Critical Control Management (CCM) and has been able to experience first-hand the challenges and opportunities for effective implementation of CCM.
From this experience of what Jim terms ‘Operational Risk Management’ (ORM) Jim has written a series of short articles, offering a perspective on the related needs, opportunities and challenges of ORM. As Jim says, ‘…this is one person’s perspective, influenced by experience and bias, but the objective is simply to stimulate thinking.’
These articles discuss the potential step change in ORM from current approaches that may have been developed in the 20th century to a newer overt focus on the systematic application of quality controls and, following that phase, a move to effective critical control implementation, verification and assessment of effectiveness.
