Risk Assessment Training Courses

Risk Assessment is one of the fundamental skills required for safe machinery design. We offer a variety of courses aimed at different audiences. These programs range from a general overview of the process through a detailed exploration of risk assessment tools and their application to industrial machinery.

Introduction to Risk Assessment

This is a top-level introduction to risk assessment concepts. The program is designed to run in 1-1/2 hours.

Risk assessment is a process that, until recently, has been somewhat mysterious to most people. In this presentation the basics of risk assessment as applied to industrial machinery are introduced. Topics covered include:

Each topic will be introduced by the speaker and supported with data taken from National and International standards. Examples taken from real-life machinery assessments will be used to illustrate the methods.

Who should attend

This short seminar is intended for Engineering Managers, Production Managers, OHS or EHS Managers and others who may need a high level understanding of the risk assessment process without needing to apply the process directly in their work.


Basics of Machinery Risk Assessment

This is an introductory course intended for people who will be applying risk assessment in their daily work. The course runs 1-day.

This course is designed to introduce the basic concepts used in machinery risk assessment. Various methodologies are described and the concepts of risks vs. hazard are discussed.
