Safe business management is an approach that is focused on the safety of the operational procedures of a company. It requires managers to address a wide range of influencing variables, including culture and leadership.

A company’s health and safety policies should be clear and in line with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) guidelines. It is vital to achieve the desired results. The management team of a company must also be devoted to the success of the system. This includes demonstrating that safety is just as crucial as production numbers by direct comments such as performance reviews, bonuses and systems. LyondellBasell, for example has a policy that states that should OSHA injuries are high, then managers will not be eligible for bonuses.

The Agile frameworks Lean-Agile and Scaled Scrum also have a strong focus on safe business management. They specifically emphasize roles, structures and artifacts that are appropriate for every scale. For example, the Lean-Agile model has the roles of safety and quality for each Scrum team. The model also teaches that it is important to keep the safety of employees in mind while designing and developing software

A successful safe business management program is an essential component of the Technology Backbone Model (TBM). In fact, TBM and SAFe work together to help IT provide more value to the organization by ensuring that superior software and systems cost less.
