SAFETY MANAGEMENT AS A SUPPORT ACTIVITY IN THE LOCAL SELF-GOVERNMENT
AbstractA prerequisite for performance of self-government and its integral components is the government’s ability to adequately execute self-governance, which is essential for its efficiency and thus, the meaning of its existence. In villages, in addition to the main activities, a number of supporting activities are carried out to ensure smooth functioning of the core business. Among the supporting activities for municipalities is safety management. The current management guidelines and processes of many municipalities cover components of safety management, but not in a systematic approach. The adoption of an ‘official’ process of safety management realizes the need for a critical review of their existing practices and its process in the field of security. This contribution deals with the issue of safety management and the responsible roles for creating a safety management system of a village. The purpose of such a system is to ensure the safety of all operations involved in achieving village objectives and to prevent security threats to life, property, and the environment. This contribution mainly focuses on the safety sector of municipalities, which forms the core of the safety management system of a village.
