It is about:
Having regard of the Consequences – my talk
Dealing with Inevitability of Failure – Shane’s talk

                   It is that Simple
Having regard of the Consequences

       What can happen…

         if it does not
          stop in time
                        Catastrophic Events
                        that could result from failed brakes

Not Catastrophic…
in this case it
DID STOP just in time
Putting it Simply…
Your equipment will not stop in time
 If our brakes are not designed right
 If our brakes are not manufactured right
 If our brakes are not assembled right
 If your loads aren’t right
 If your roads aren’t right
 If your maintenance isn’t right
 If you do not use them properly
 If you do not realise they are not right
 If you do not know what to do in an emergency
 If we do not help you know what is right.
 If we do not provide full product support and consultancy
When Brake Failure is not an Option…
We Embrace:
  Technical Standards for Performance
  Redundant Systems
  Secondary Systems
  Dedicated Systems
  Fail to Safe Systems
  Redundancy in Design
  Pre-failure Maintenance
  Regular Inspection and Testing
  Continuous Monitoring and Alarms
  Excellence in Design, Manufacture, Supply, Commissioning & Support
  Operating Limits for Grade, Speed and Payload
  Excellence in Operations & Asset Management

          Managing Risk is Simple
