Event description

Description

Are risk matrices hazardous?

Speakers

David Gleave - Aviation Safety Investigations

Keith Miller - IMechE Safety & Reliability Working Group

Steven Hughes - Director, Rail at Abbott Risk Consulting

The use of risk matrices for safety decision making is common place, with a wide range of guidance documents, templates and methods available. But how well are they used? Are they actually suitable for purpose? Do we really understand the technical, psychological, legal and political implications and whether the results add value, or could be potentially hazardous in themselves?

Over the years we have seen occasions when the use of risk matrices actually allows for an unintended increase in risk, so this SaRS London Branch event will scrutinise the methodology; how it is used and sometimes abused; and highlight ways in which risk matrices can lead to poor risk management that may actually be hazardous.

We will have three talks covering the use of risk matrices addressing these issues, together with practical examples and followed by what promises to be a lively Q&A session.

The meeting will begin at 1730, for an 1800 start. Meetings are open to all, you do not need to be a member of SaRS to attend.

It is also intended to broadcast the event as a live webinar (slides and audio only). If you would like to register for the webinar please book here:

Please do not book a place on both.
