Effective Risk Management
 Tuesday 30 October – Book now >

Participants in the Effective Risk Management Workshop will:

  • Learn through an understanding of the Entropy Model that incidents and losses are caused by residual risk and entropic risk; the latter resulting from degradation of or poorly developed organizational systems
  • Learn to apply the Entropy Model to effectively manage risk to pursue productivity, quality work outcomes and HSE incident mitigation concurrently, with active participation of the workforce
  • Understand the value-add that compliance achieves and how to:
  • Develop and maintain a HSE risk register
  • Develop a framework for the HSE Management System
  • Keep up to date with legislative requirements
  • Follow the safety journey model as a means of continuously improving their organisation
  • Be challenged to undertake a transformation from safety-based thinking to risk-based thinking by which productivity, quality work outcomes and HSE incident mitigation are pursued concurrently
