Who are we?

Tapora is a company that provides consulting services for companies and organizations involved with complex sociotechnical systems and safety-critical operations.

Complex socio-technical systems are about humans, technology, and organization. Contemporary safety science has evolved from focusing on humans when people directly interact with the hazardous process, sharp-end, to understand the importance of humans at the blunt-end. Activities at the blunt-end are distant in time and space from where operational work is done. Regulators, administrators, policymakers, and technology suppliers control the resources, constraints, and multiple incentives and demands that sharp-end practitioners need to integrate and balance pressures at the blunt-end.

We have long experience in many different areas, such as aviation, air traffic management, railway, nuclear power, oil & gas, energy, process and chemical industry, pharmaceutical and medical technology.

How can we help your organization?

We all know that there is risk involved in any business – some more than others. So how do we make qualified business decisions around our knowledge of risk?

Different views on risk

How organizations view risk strongly influences how they tackle risks when they appear. This view will impact decisions, money, and resources for the organization. Tapora offers new perspectives on risk based on system thinking, control theory, and resilience engineering.

Tailor-made solutions

To deal with risks, you have to understand them and be aware that your decision will have consequences and should be handled accordingly. Hence, Tapora does not offer simplified systems that fit every company but tailor-makes solutions that consider your specific issues and challenges. It is, therefore, crucial to start work with your CEO and executive management. Together, we can begin the work to make the necessary changes, which will benefit your organization’s safety and productivity.

What do we know?

The answer is an awful lot. We have vast experience in the field of risk management and safety. Our co-workers have helped numerous companies, such as global oil & gas operators, a leading Nordic energy group, Nordic nuclear power plant operators, engineering companies, railway and aviation operators, and Armed Forces with their risk management and safety work. We also offer consulting sessions for senior management and students from several renowned universities and colleges.
