I think in life there are a lot of things you can be resposible for.
I was working some years as a crewleader, where were coming up a lot of different situations to manage. Here in Germany, a lot of companies envolved in risky business or production, such as transport, events, chemicals, electricity, or healthcare are under obligation to employ a "safety officer" or a "safety adviser". As a Crewleader, I always had to communicate with our technical project-leader or the managers. In "Project-Process-Managment" you learn that there a special contracts, wich include special fees for as example, an "ultimate responsibilty" including penalty-payments in the case the project will not achieve its goal. Based on that, and in accordance with a business examination there are the following designations: Head or Head-Office, Manager, Member of the panel, Officer, Leader, Supervisor, or the Captain of a ship. Not to forget, Council.
