  2. How are safe operating parameters and limits collated and communicated to operations staff?
  3. Are the implications of operating outside of the safe operating envelope clearly understood?
  4. How are key operational data recorded and compared against safe limits?
  5. How are excursions outside of the safe operating envelope communicated to others? To whom the communicated?
