Taming Tigers: Safety Excellence in Engineering - in partnership with The University of Manchester

Book Course

HSL is to run a 2 day course on Taming Tigers: Safety Excellence in Engineering - in partnership with The University of Manchester.

13 - 14 September 2017

Why big cats and engineering?
If we think of traditional health and safety risks as lions (dangerous but we can see them and take action) then process safety hazards are tigers.  Latent failures lurking in the jungle, not easily visible until they pounce with potentially catastrophic consequences. Learning to tame these tigers helps industry avoid catastrophe and improve performance.

Manchester Uni HSE

While traditional health and safety risks are visible, process safety risks are much like tigers: lurking in the jungle, not easily visible until they pounce with potentially catastrophic consequences. Learning to tame these tigers helps industry avoid catastrophe and improve performance.

Tiger

One of the biggest challenges facing the engineering leadership community in high-risk industries is delivering value to the business. Given that safety and risk management is and should be the highest priority, how can businesses deliver safe design / operations AND maintain competitive advantage?

Learning Outcomes

  • Understand the specific challenges in technical risk management for high risk industries and explore solutions.
  • Understand the journey of organisational cultural change for success.
  • Understand the application of technical risk management for low probability and high consequence events.
  • Understand good practice for technical leadership in high-risk industry.

 

Delivery Method

In this Master Class we aim to outline concepts and principles based on technology, risk and project management good practice. In addition to the subject matter experts from HSE and the University of Manchester, there will be other high profile keynote speakers too: Taf Powell - Managing Partner, Corporate Integrity Partnership; and David Warriner - Head of PCO Improvement Programme, Rolls-Royce. These interactive guest speaker sessions are a great opportunity for delegates to learn from invaluable project and operations experience.

A short pre-work will aim to identify delegate challenges in technical risk management. During the Master Class our subject matter experts and delegates will work together to consider sustainable solutions to the main challenges identified.

Comments & Feedback

'Very topical. Good differentiation between occupational risk/safety versus technical risk/safety. Very useful and informative.' P Odendaal, Britannia Refined Metals Ltd

"I found 'How to avoid Project Wreckages' and 'Mindful Leadership in Technical Safety' thought provoking and relevant to my organisation. I have been made aware of a number of new tools that I can read up on and digest and apply as I see appropriate. I liked the recommended reading suggestions." 'A Gibbs, Solvay
