Behavior-based processes for reducing risks of incidents, including personnel safety, process safety, security, and environmental considerations, are in place. It is expected that:
• employees and contractors consistently recognize and proactively mitigate operational, procedural, and physical hazards
• employees and contractors proactively and routinely identify and eliminate their at-risk behaviors and those of their co-workers
• Human Factors, workforce engagement, and leadership behaviors are addressed
• behaviors, at-risk conditions, and other precursors that can lead to incidents are recorded, analyzed, and addressed

Emergencies, crises and disasters like the tsunami in Japan or the recent riots in London, can happen at any time. Organizations around the world are increasingly implementing risk management processes to deal with uncertainty and ensure continuity. But if their suppliers are unable to deliver, or customers unable to purchase, the ability of an organization to achieve its objectives would be compromised. Security management systems for the supply chain to promote resilience at every step of the supply chain, ISO has developed a new standard, ISO 28002:2011, Security management system for the supply chain – Development of resilience in the supply chain.
ISO 28002 can be applied to any organization including private, not-for-profit, non governmental, and public sector. Implemented within a management system, the standard enhances an organization’s capacity to manage and survive any disruptive event and take appropriate actions to help ensure its viability and continued operation.
