Safety Management

Jim Thomson has worked in Operations, Design Engineering, Project Management, Safety Management, and Regulator Liaison.

Failures and weaknesses of Safety Management and Safety Management Systems are the underlying causes of most accidents.

I believe that independent, challenging high level peer review, done from a position of pragmatic understanding of the pressures facing front-line staff, is one of the best defences against failures and complacency in Safety Management.” 

Jim’s experience includes:

  • Shift manager on an operating nuclear power station. 
  • The specification of work control systems. 
  • Nuclear Safety Manager for a major plc.
  • Carrying out safety audits and due diligence on oil platforms and refineries in the Indian Ocean, the Black Sea, the North Sea, Romania and Sudan.
