There will always be risk in the engineering industry but to avoid unnecessary complications and cost caused by risk, the industry needs to ensure that they are following the ALARP principle.
Attend ALARP 2018 to gain best practice in the application of the ALARP principle in risk management from thought-leaders in nuclear new build, aerospace and the visitor attraction industries.
Hear from the key organisations in regulation to ensure your processes are compliant with current standards. Learn about the latest risk assessment approaches to use in your company. Gain best practice in implementing the ALARP principle in the design, development and operation of engineering systems.
Meet with safety engineers, design engineers, ALARP and human factors specialists to benefit from cross-industry insights.
Attend this seminar to:
- Hear from human factors and ALARP specialists from organisations across industry engineering sectors including Sellafield Ltd, QinetiQ, Office for Nuclear Regulation, Civil Aviation Authority, General Nuclear System and DNV GL
- Ensure you are meeting industry standards by hearing directly from the Health and Safety Executive
- Reduce risk in your operational processes by hearing case studies from successful application of ALARP
- Gain a greater understanding of the human bias and how to use this best to help your projects
- Discuss best practice with safety engineers, process safety managers, design engineers and ALARP specialists
Key programme highlights:
- General Nuclear System highlight ALARP challenges on their joint venture nuclear new build with China General Nuclear Power Corporation
- DNV GL reveal how they are enhancing Merlin Entertainments' approach to delivering roller coaster ride safety
- QinetiQ share insights into human reliability analysis and counting on the human when making ALARP judgements
- The Civil Aviation Authority talk about cognitive bias in aerospace engineering
- Sellafield Ltd discuss the evolution of human factors and how they are incorporating a new dedicated function covering human factors, performance and disciplined operations

Delegate feedback from ALARP 2017:
“ALARP is a simple acronym that means so many different things in so many different contexts. The event was a great way to experience all of its different attributes and pull all of them together. The wide selection of classes and presenters ensured a very coherent and in depth understanding”
Programme Lead, Risk Based Nuclear Safety, Sellafield Ltd
"Both technically and holistically this seminar reached the intent and spirit of ALARP principles across many of the common boundaries of the attending sectors. Those of us in Defence need to be assured we are as common as possible with the comparable complex systems sectors in our approach such that the good practice benchmark is not so far from our own approach to provide the customer and users the safety level we intent but also to hold ourselves up to the industry standards we must continually measure against"
Head of Product Safety, Maritime Services, BAE Systems
“A good event to go and meet industry leading experts and absorb key and practical information to use in your projects”
Project Engineer, AEGIS Engineering Systems
"It was a conference that would be of use to those involved in taking investment decisions in a capital intensive industry with process safety risks"
Regulatory Reporting Manager, Cadent
"A well-organised and supported event, I will attempt to attend future IMechE events in the future"
Configuration Manager, Jacobs Engineering
"Valuable insights into cross-sector understanding of ALARP, with valuable legal and regulatory context"
