HSL: Taming Tigers-Safety Excellence in Engineering – in partnership with The University of Manchester – HSL Buxton, 9-10 Nov 2016

One of the biggest challenges facing the engineering
leadership community in high-risk industries is delivering value to
the business. Given that safety and risk management is and should
be the highest priority, how can businesses deliver safe design /
operations AND maintain competitive advantage?

Learning Outcomes

  • Understand the specific challenges in HSSE management for high
    risk industries and explore solutions.

  • Understand the journey of organisational cultural change for

  • Understand the application of Technical Risk Management for low
    probability and high consequence events.

  • Understand good practice for technical leadership in high-risk


Delivery Method

In this Master Class we aim to
outline concepts and principles based on technology, risk and
project management good practice. We are delighted to have several
high profile guest speakers (former senior leaders from high-risk
industries and regulators). These interactive guest speaker
sessions are a great opportunity for delegates to learn from
invaluable project and operations experience.

A short pre-work will aim to
identify delegate challenges in Health, Safety, Security and
Environment (HSSE). During the Master Class our subject matter
experts and delegates will work together to consider sustainable
solutions to the main challenges identified.
