'Traditional’ risk assessment programmes exist to identify hazards arising from work activities to ensure suitable risk control measures are in place. However, incidents continue to happen, either as a result of inadequate risk assessments or failures in the necessary risk control measures. Risk management involves the preparation of action plans, implementing and measuring performance. This can be proactive, based on risk assessments, active, based on safety audits and site inspection, and reactive based on incident investigation and analysis.

This 5-day programme presents the cutting edge of advanced risk assessment and risk management techniques that are based on latest International Standards and best industry practice. This training session is designed to provide delegates with the knowledge and skills necessary to design, implement and monitor effective risk assessment and risk management systems for their organisation.


The delegates will learn how:

  • Selection of appropriate risk assessment techniques, including process/work place based versus the task-based approach
  • Monitor and review the effectiveness of an organisation’s risk assessment procedures relevant to process hazards
  • Plan improvements to your organisation’s risk assessment procedure on a rational basis
  • Implement risk control strategies and recommend long term risk controls based on cost-benefit analysis
  • Develop an audit plan for HSE Management System
  • Develop procedures for incident investigation and analysis
  • Design a feedback system to ensure that the organisation continues to review and learn from experience
  • Personnel involved in carrying out risk assessment and accident prevention
  • Personnel involved in implementing the Company’s HSE Management System
  • Professionals wishing to widen their understanding of undertaking and managing process risks within the organization’s HSE Management System
  • The Workshop is also designed for other professionals who need to keep up-to-date with latest trends in risk management
