The paper reports how an investigation into the experiences of safety experts and -practitioners in the Covid crisis led to discussions about netcentric working systems. As experts struggled with a wide spectrum of counter-measures they became heavily dependent on personal, professional and digital networks. The information gathered from networks was combined with their personal training and experience to design local measures for combatting Covid. The method of working echoes an earlier observation that netcentric working methods are becoming the norm in Dutch expertise-networks. However, current networks are as yet not optimised for rapid information sharing and, it makes sense to consider more professional ways of utilizing networks. This work reports about the initial investigations and provides a conceptual design for a netcentric approach to in safety networks.
