Abstract

The emergence of new technologies and new types of risks, in which the relationships between people and technology are complex and dynamic, challenge the models and techniques that have been used to measure safety performance. Traditional approaches are usually reactive and have little predictive value. Thus, this study discusses the design of safety performance measurement systems based on the Resilience Engineering paradigm, so that these are capable of monitoring and managing risks continuously throughout the life-cycle of the system. Resilience Engineering is relevant from the Lean perspective because it is useful to devise ways to balance safety and efficiency pressures, which otherwise can contribute to wastes and accidents. This paper presents the preliminary results of a systematic literature review of principles for designing safety performance measurement systems based on the Resilience Engineering paradigm. Five principles were identified: management commitment, awareness, anticipation, continuous learning and flexibility.
