Managing the Task

An excerpt from the script: “certain individuals have specific duties during the performance of routine work tasks. When the ship leadership team identifies a task, the department head appoints a task leader, who in turn selects a work team. The department head retains overall responsibility for task safety within his area of responsibility. The task leader manages the task on site throughout its duration. The department head and the task leader cannot be the same person”.
