System Safety Process Management - System Safety Process Management
(24 Jul 17 - 27 Jul 17)

Overview

Introduction

A highly interactive workshop where delegates practise the knowledge gained during the System Safety Process Management on-Line course in syndicate activities and classroom discussions.

Using a case study, delegates work through a project from concept through to disposal in syndicate. The workshop is facilitated with tutor-led support throughout.

It is the fourth safety course in the series leading to the full MOD System Safety Practitioner qualification which is accredited by the International Institute of Safety Risk Management (IIRSM) and successful completion is a mandatory pre-requisite for the System Safety Practitioner on-line course.

The programme consists of 6 courses that must be completed in sequence. Successful completion of the System Safety Practitioner exam (optional) at the end of the programme qualifies delegates for IIRSM membership.    

Aim

To provide an in-depth view of System Safety and detail its management and processes within the MOD, with an emphasis on Defence Acquisition. 

Objectives

By the end of the course delegates will be able to: 

- Describe a strategy by which risks can be shown to be ALARP and an appropriate course of action to deal with risks that are not ALARP

- Identify the circumstances in which a Cost Benefit Analysis (CBA) would be used and sequence the main steps in carrying one out; 

- List the main steps in a safety audit and match to the level of assurance required;  

- Explain why accidents need to be investigated and what can be learnt from them; 

- Describe the key considerations when running Safety Committee Meetings and how to assess the competences of the committee members in making decisions; 

- Describe the scope of and recognise how the organisation manages the content of a Safety Management Plan; 

- Explain how a safety case is structured and key factors to consider when being reviewed;

- Recognise the requirement for safety governance and identify the legislation that applies to a project; 

- Identify the best practice techniques to manage stakeholders and sort the areas primary stakeholders, customer bodies and contractors are responsible for in terms of system safety; 

- Describe systematic failure and list the strategies for managing it; 

- Explain how to use the 00-56 standards within a contract and list the methods for managing compliance for COTS purchases;
