The ALARP (as low as reasonably practicable) principle is the governing standard for safety practices in UK engineering. It requires designers and safety engineers to do everything they can to reduce risk, within the confines of what is deemed to be ‘reasonably practicable’.
This annual seminar showcases a number of case studies from industry experts exploring practical demonstrations of ALARP. In addition, it features high-level discussions on the techniques for doing so including comparisons of quantitative and qualitative arguments and legal perspectives.
This event enables safety engineers and risk managers to examine what their counterparts in a broad range of sectors are doing to improve safety performance. This in turn allows them to better apply the ALARP principle in their day-to-day work to reduce the risk of safety-critical accidents, and the exposure of their business to legal or financial penalties.
Join this seminar to:
- Gain in-depth insights into ALARP methodologies employed in a range of safety-critical sectors, highlighting key takeaways to use in their own work
- Understand developments around the interpretation and application of ALARP
- Develop the knowledge and skills needed to successfully apply the ALARP principle to 21st century engineering challenges
- Mitigate and manage risks effectively to eliminate safety-critical events
- Reduce your exposure to regulatory and legal penalties by understanding expectations and meeting them fully
