Unit 1. Rationale and Management.
This Unit introduces several perspectives on risk and safety, the importance of the control of risks, and the four steps for managing risks: identification, analysis, evaluation and treatment.
Unit 2. Risk identification.
This Unit introduces the goal and the approach for identifying risks. Then it addresses the hazard identification (including the types of hazards), and present several techniques to identify risks and models for its representation, highlighting their benefits and limits: Primary Hazard Analysis, Checklists, Brainstorming, Interviews, Bow Tie, Ishikawa and Tree Diagrams. The selection an appropriate method is finally discussed.
Unit 3. Risk analysis 1/2.
This Unit introduces the goal and approach for analysing risks. Then several analysis techniques and their associated models are presented, highlighting their benefits and limits: Cause-and-Effect Analysis, Scenario Analysis, Bow Tie, Event Tree Analysis, and Hazard-Oriented Model.
Unit 4. Risk Analysis 2/2.
Other analysis techniques and the associated models are introduced, highlighting their benefits and limits: Failure Mode and Effect Analysis, Fault-Tree Analysis, HAZOP. The selection an appropriate method is finally discussed.
Unit 5. Dealing with a real situation.
This Unit develops a case study by using various methods for identifying and analysing the risks of a given situation. It allows the use of the methods to be understood and the actual benefits and limits of these methods to be assimilated.
Unit 6. Risk evaluation and risk treatment.
This Unit introduces the approach for evaluating and treating the risks to provide a safe situation with a qualitative perspective.
