About this course

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. 

Associated workshop-based training courses are now being delivered by an external provider in the Bristol area.  Bookings are being taken for both the System Safety Process Management and System Safety Practitioner modules, with plans to re-introduce System Safety in Action in mid-2020.  Bookings must not be made directly with the training provider but through the DE&S sponsor. Completion of the relevant online training module remains an essential pre-requisite for attendance on all workshops.
