Introduction to Risk Management

March 14 - 18, 2011

Lecturer: Marko Gerbec

The course is part of a modern and modular European Master and Certification Program set up in the EU project iNTeg-Risk by Steinbeis University (STI Advanced Risk Technologies) and other project partners.

The course covers the main topics of industrial safety, starting with different aspects of risks and terminology used in the field. The main part of the course is dedicated to the related EU directives and their application in industry. The course outlines goals, scope and required measures / obligations considering acute (e.g. accidents-related) and chronic (e.g. pollution-related) risks. Special attention is devoted to major accident prevention and related process safety risk assessment methodologies.

At the end of the course students are expected to have basic knowledge about:

  • general terms used in the area of risk, safety, hazard, risk and risk assessment...
  • respective EU regulation/directives such as REACH, Seveso II, ATEX, and the obligations resulting from them
  • main elements of the process safety assessment (input data, hazards identification methods and tools, scenario elaboration and assessment of related risks…), including major accidents prevention policy
  • safety measures, based on regulatory requirements, as implemented in the different EU member states.
As an option, the course covers the issues of risk perception and risk communication and tackles the method of stakeholder involvement in technical risk management.

As introductory, the course is dedicated to the wide range of participants, such as:

  • professionals dealing with risk issues on management or operation level
  • individuals with no previous experience in the field of risk management, but willing to extend their knowledge and take up new roles in risk management in their companies
  • students of Steinbeis Master of Risk Engineering and Management program and similar programs.
