Safety used to be all about protecting the individual from threats and dangers in their immediate environment. Today, the concept has evolved to encompass whole workplaces and entire organisations. Throughout these changes the responsibility for safety and security has shifted from the individual to the organisation and business networks, and, in society, to local, regional, national and international authorities and organisa- tions. However, global changes are beyond the control of these bodies. Organisations must therefore be prepared for new emerg- ing threats and build resilience against them.
