The course examines principles of As Low As Reasonably Practical and Cost Benefit Analysis in the context of system safety; it introduces Safety Audits and the concept of Safety Management planning and covers accident investigation, systematic failures, safety governance and legislation. The course looks at how MOD sets safety standards in its contracts but the principles have wider applicability. The course is an element of a mandated programme for MOD system safety practitioners leading to an International Institute of Safety Risk Management Accreditation, but has wider relevance to non-MOD employees involved in the system safety aspects of projects.
By the end of the course you will:
- understand how to assess system risks against the principles of as low as reasonable practical
- understand Project Governance and Assurance for System Safety and Safety Management Planning
- understand the concept of systematic failure and what can be learned from accident investigations
- understand how safety standards are applied in MOD contracts
System safety principles are fundamental to project compliance and this course provides essential understanding for practitioners responsible for advising or delivering system safety standards. It is part of a mandated pathway and qualification for MOD system safety practitioners.
You must have completed System Safety In Action Online training and the System Safety In Action Workshop before attending this course.
