Readers familiar with Hollnagel’s Safety 1/Safety 2 ideas, and the Australian-driven Safety Differently movement inspired in part by Hollnagel, Sidney Dekker and others, might be pleased to learn that UK researchers have reached similar conclusions: that workers are a resource to learn from, that close engagement with them is essential, and that the days of rigid safety rules might be numbered.

In other words, people are the solution not the problem, and people with H&S expertise would do best to take a coaching role and approach each workplace as a learner.

Let humility and a lack of ego rule!
