Process Risk Assessment
Course Description
Introduction: Traditional’ risk assessment programs 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 program presents the cutting edge of advanced risk assessment techniques that are based on latest International Standards and best industry practice. This program is designed to provide delegates with the knowledge and skills necessary to design implement and monitor effective risk assessment for their organization.
