The objectives of the proposed Safety by Design and Assessment of Risk Workshop are:
A 2-day workshop to baseline the explosives industry’s knowledge about safety processes and practices used in the design of Explosive Substances and/or Articles (ESA).
The programme will consider the whole ESA life cycle and associated processes on which its safety depends, including assessment of risk.
The aims are to:
- Baseline current knowledge and practices
- Identify good practice from any industry, that might be applicable to the explosives sector
- Highlight current and future skills gaps
- Enable knowledge transfer
- Suggest new:
- training and education requirements for the sector;
- guidance; and/or
- tools and techniques
If you would like more information for this event, please don’t hesitate to contact Vicki Hall on firstname.lastname@example.org or to call the office on 01785 594136.
The workshop is only open to staff of SSSG Partners and the SWG and only 50 places are available.
CALL FOR SPEAKERS
We are looking for practitioners from the explosives sector (and one or two from other industries) to speak for 10-15 minutes on how they use any of the following processes or techniques in the context of process and/or product design, noting the incorporation (or not) of human factors and the practicalities of using the techniques in the high-hazard environment:
- Systems engineering, toolset and process design
- Noises and controls (P-Diagram and What-Why) good way of identifying noises and the influence humans can have
- FERA (Now the new Process Risk Assessment (PRA)) Process Flow, RA , P-Diagrams, what why tables, PCP.
- CAST – Causal Analysis based on Systems Theory
- Fault Tree Analysis
- 5×5 matrix (why it needs the underlying science)
- SWIFT – Structured What-if Technique
- STAMP – Systems-Theoretic Accident Model and Processes
- Human Factors cause and effects
