What is 'Holistic Safety'?

Holistic Safety is a best practice approach to safety management. It focuses on technological, human, and organisational aspects—making sure the technology (plant, equipment, tools, apparatus, machinery, etc.) is safe to use; people perform tasks safely at work; and the organisation overall is managed safely.

ARPANSA provides information to support licence holders using a holistic approach to manage the safety of their operations.
