An organisations activity is represented as a set of Programs. Programs can be events or ongoing activities. A new program is created for each new event. Programs must have a team allocated to them, who are going to run the program.
Each program has a Status, to represent whether that program has been granted Permission to Proceed. This is the key process, as it pulls together various aspects of safety planning and management. Team Leaders complete the steps required, then submit their Program to their Coordinator. The Coordinator assesses the plans and indicates for each step whether the requirement have been met. SMO tracks this activity and keeps both parties informed of progress towards the granting of Permission.
All programs (activities, events) are undertaken by a Team. When a new Team is created, a Team Leader is appointed. Teams are arranged into divisions and groups. Each group has a Coordinator who oversees the people and programs within that Group.
