This project investigates the measurement of high reliability organisations for improving health care safety. A growing body of peer-reviewed studies continues to be published on high reliability organisations, demonstrates its recognition and importance for improving safety across high risk contexts such as health care. However, little attention has focused on developing an understanding of how it has conceptualized, and factors that have been used in its measurement. This is a significant gap which can limit its operationalization for research and practice. This paper presents a systematic review project currently underway which seeks to address this gap. After completing a systematic search and selection strategy twenty-one articles were selected for analysis. Results indicate fourteen survey instruments have been used in these studies. Seventeen different definitions of HRO were identified. Nine studies used surveys for data collection. Both independent and outcomes variables were reported, these can be used to inform an initial theoretical framework and a survey instrument.

The chemical, construction and oil and gas industries in the United Kingdom and Australia are comprised of high risk activities which need to be controlled, for the safety of those carrying out the work and to maintain a safe workplace. A permit-to-work (PTW) system is a formal written system designed to control certain types of work that are identified as potentially hazardous. The aim of this article is to contribute to the understanding of the implementation issues with a PTW system. This article identifies PTW system issues, and proposes best practices for effective implementation of a PTW system. The study was carried out by reviewing articles on PTW systems and analysing accidents that resulted from poor implementation of systems using case studies and previous literature review on PTW implementation issues. Findings from the case studies reveal that PTW systems lack proper implementation and supervision most frequently as a result of administrative setbacks. The best practices provide invaluable indications for procedure of an effective PTW system practice and improvements in future research. The guidelines and regulations on PTW systems used in this article are focused on the United Kingdom and Australia.
