Understand the drivers for risk management and major risk management concepts.
The course provides an overview of risk management in the high hazard industries. It discusses the drivers for risk management, defines some of the fundamental terminology and introduces major risk management concepts, such as risk tolerability criteria and As Low As Reasonably Practicable (ALARP).
The course briefly introduces some key risk assessment techniques and the situations in which they may be used. It considers the purpose and structure of an HSE/safety case and an HSE Management System (HSE MS). The course includes case studies of some significant historical accidents and their root causes, and evaluates the importance of safety leadership and organisational culture in preventing accidents.
This course forms the basis of understanding of risk and safety management that can then be enhanced by further study, notably Hazard Identification, Risk Analysis and Risk Reduction & ALARP.
The approach to this course is defined by the fact that we learn by ‘doing’; there are numerous activities and worked examples which complement and embed the learning.
Who should attend?
Managers, engineers, operators, HSE risk advisors and risk management practitioners, safety managers, process safety engineers, risk engineers, plant integrity co-ordinators.
