Applying bizSAFE CultureSAFE to battle Infectious Diseases

Using the Loss Causation Model and bizSAFE and CultureSAFE Programs to Contain Outbreaks of Infectious Diseases



bizSAFE and CultureSAFE are two key WSH programs that guide companies to implement risk management and nurture safety culture. Fundamental and key to the two programs is the Loss Causation Model attributable to Frank E. Bird Junior (1921 – 2007).

The outbreak of SARS in 2003 and COVID-19 from 2019 to 2022 has caused havoc around the World. Most of us, regardless of age and occupation, are trying to find ways to prevent ourselves and our families from getting infected. For the professionals, especially those who have experience SARS and Covid, are working hard to identify immediate, medium, and long-term solutions so as to help contain the risks of such an outbreak of infectious disease.

This short session will provide linkages between bizSAFE / CultureSAFE and the Loss Causation Model, and how this can help in the containment of outbreak of infectious diseases.



The objective of this session is to introduce the Loss Causation Model, apply it together with bizSAFE and CultureSAFE so as to identify practical solutions and control actions needed to contain the outbreak of infectious diseases.
