SMS Hazard Identification & Risk Management Strategies Essentials – 1 Day


Developing an effective process within the organization to perform Hazard Identification, carry out analysis, and develop appropriate mitigations is a fundamental attribute of an effective Safety Management System. The Strategy we adopt within the organization sets the tone for how effective the process will ultimately be. If we view regulatory compliance as a minimum level, the organization has significant opportunities to develop effective strategies which will not only drive safety behaviors but can lead to significant optimizations across the business.

This Day Essentials training is aimed at persons who are already working in the Quality & Safety departments and will provide a platform to help them develop a personal action plan to improve the Risk Management Process. An element of the training will include several pre-course questions and a short exercise that will improve the specific understanding of your challenges and needs to be discussed in general terms during the training.
