Step 2: Establish a VI Control Framework Baseline (Phase 1)

Following the EMESRT Control Framework (CFw) approach, establish a site VI control baseline to ensure:

  • External expectations of operating site – legal and company are captured and reviewed
  • The EMESRT nine-level layer control effectiveness model is applied
  • A project risk and control management process is established that can be reviewed and updated through each project step and passed on at project handover
  • A reference and consultation process is established for operational input and validation of key project steps
  • Effective change management reviews are completed and updated at each step, such as capturing the interactions between new and existing VI controls.

Detailed information is provided in the EMESRT Vehicle Interaction Control Improvement Project Guide 2020 below

2.2 Site Baseline

The Results and Work Packages in this section assist operating sites to prepare Vehicle Interaction Control Baseline

The Site VI Control Baseline is prepared by applying the EMESRT Control Framework (CFw).

The Control Framework approach is a methodology that is aligned with Failure Modes and Effects Analysis, Human Factors and the ICMM Critical Control Methodology. It considers required business outcomes and then maps in the real-world inputs required to achieve them with a focus on answering 'what has to be in place for work to go right?'
