Safety Risk Management, required under ICAO and EASA regulations, is proving a challenge for many. Whilst regulatory compliance and adherence to operational procedures deliver some risk reduction, how do you show you have reduced the risks your organisation is exposed to, how do you establish if you have “done enough”, and how can you demonstrate the need for investment for additional risk reduction measures?
The inability for an organisation to see, understand and effectively act upon risk in a coherent and structured way leaves it vulnerable to events and legal challenge against national and international requirements for risk management and risk reduction.
This course enables delegates to understand and apply the principles, approaches and tools of risk management in order to make informed SRM decisions on risk reduction and risk tolerance within their organisation. Delivered by our expert consultants who all have real experience of managing risk at the sharp end, this course provides the essential skills for developing increased safety risk management competence in your people.
How will this course benefit me?
This 3-day, practically focused course aims to provide you with the skills to:
  • Apply the fundamental principles of risk management to Safety Risks within the EASA and ICAO regulatory environments
  • Use risk management tools and artefacts to improve SRM decision making
  • Apply the crucial steps in a risk management process 
  • Make risk assessments and review risks to create risk profiles
  • Integrate the outputs and tools of your risk management process into the routine safety review, occurrence reporting and error management functions of your organisation
