Summary

This programme enables you to understand the hierarchy of risk reduction measures and the options for risk reduction in the project lifecycle.

ALARP (As Low As Reasonably Practicable) is a commonly used but often misunderstood concept.

In this two-day programme we introduce you to the concept of ALARP and run through how to demonstrate that risk has been reduced to ALARP levels.

Who should attend?

This programme is suitable for project and operational managers, engineers and HSE professionals.

How will I benefit?

    After the workshop you will be able to:

  • Identify different options available for risk reduction (control hierarchy)
  • Decide when risk reduction measures can best be used
  • Describe the concepts of “tolerability of risk” and “As Low As Reasonably Practicable (ALARP)”
  • Apply the ALARP concept and conduct an ALARP assessment to an appropriate level of detail
Contributes 14 CPD hours
