A 1 day introduction to the high level principles and formal methods of risk assessment and analysis in design, developed by engineers, and its application to design in the rail industry.
Key Learning Outcomes:
On completion of the course, participants should be able to: Examine and address topical issues of design safety risk in the rail industry.
Discuss the current and developing legislative requirements for rail design risk State how risks in general should be managed.
Explain in detail the principle so far as is reasonably practicable Explain the concept of the designer as a rail safety worker and its implications.
Demonstrate design risks reduced so far as is reasonably practicable Use case studies to understand the potential for things to go wrong.
Identify and use relevant standards to aid management of design risk Use case studies to develop the practical skills of design risk management.
About the Course: This course provides participants with detailed knowledge of the management of design safety risk in the rail industry, knowledge that can be applied to any design process, from major infrastructure work to new rolling stock and smaller specialised project work. The course begins with an examination of legislated requirements as they affect design safety risk, satisfying this being the minimum that must be achieved in the design process. Central to this requirement is the concept of eliminating or reducing risk so far as is reasonably practicable, and how that can be demonstrated. The course will focus on established tools and techniques that can aid risk management in the design process, as well as relevant Australian and international standards. Practical examples and case studies will reinforce this learning. The actual or potential consequences of getting it wrong at the design stage will be examined in detail through a review of rail incidents where design was integral to the outcome.
