The component of SAFEOPS is an essential part of human beings since the disasters and accidents are always the order of the day. There are disasters that come because of accident, intentional or natural, thus, affecting social and economic wellbeing of people. The disasters may lead to physical injury, death, damage to the property, emotional problems, destruction of infrastructure; in addition, it affects the running of the administration of the organization. Therefore, the managers are people who need to respond to these issues before it happens and even after it has occurred so that they can reduce the impact and the recurrence (Gustin, 2008).
It is the responsibility of the responders to have strategies that can help them when dealing with the crisis; however, they are also at the risk of the accident. Thus, they should have enough experience to protect themselves so that they do not become the victim of circumstance, but safe others. Even though the disaster may be so crucial and instant that they may not know how to test and improve on the methods of safety, they need to be ready and well aquatinted with the knowledge that they need to apply in order to deal with the situation. They need to learn from experience to develop better strategies for safety (Gustin, 2008).
The safety committee can as well learn new strategies to improve organizational safety by evaluating on the past performance and see improvement on the weaknesses. Each member of the committee needs to be responsible to know and get known by other members of the committee, which can be done through orientation. The duties should be well defined to every member, and they should always receive feedback as a way of reinforcing and motivation (Gustin, 2008).
