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. 

System Safety Workshop Status

The System Safety training currently offered by the Defence Academy is now limited to e-learning courses only; System Safety In Action Online Training – SSIAOL, System Safety Process Management Online Training – SSPMOL and the System Safety Practitioner Online Training – SSPOL.  These are still to be completed in order via the DLE and provide an excellent knowledge base of the subject.

New supporting face-to-face workshops are being sourced by the DE&S Sponsor, QSEP who hope to have a replacement delivery model in place by late summer 2019.  As such, the practitioner certification exam cannot be undertaken until both online and face-to-face workshops have been completed.  Exam will run Sep and Mar each year for those qualified to sit them.
