In recent months large oil majors have been promoting the idea of developing more resilient safety cultures. Resilience is described as a company’s positive ability to adapt to the consequence of change, whether this change is initiated (caused) by market changes, innovation or even natural disasters.

So ‘above average’ is justified from these two parameters, but they hardly explain the truth about what is going on onboard the vessels. Safety performance is often evaluated from the outside, audits, inspections, etc., which is OK, but cannot stand alone.
