Preventing Catastrophic Outcomes: The Value of Multiple Defences

Matthew Ames BE (Env), MBA (Tech Mgt), GAICD


This presentation will draw on my background in safety management in the oil and gas and mining industries and compare that with my experiences in the health sector. As a survivor of a major infection, this presentation is designed to provoke thought about how the sector can prevent these catastrophic outcomes in the future.
