Failure to share information

Hazard Knowledge

To be effective, new management systems should be capable of integrating with existing systems or disciplines in the organisation, in particular, managing health and safety. Fire and rescue services should consider the integration of fire safety and operational data and ensure that organisational skills are appropriately applied at this critical stage in the operational risk management process.

Managing operational risk information must take into account the existing and future needs for interoperability and mutual aid between neighbouring fire and rescue services and other Category 1 Responders (Civil Contingencies Act 2004). Financial, human and other resources specific to operations should be assessed, including a plan for appropriate technology that takes into account future functionality requirements and the appropriate expertise and training of staff.
