Human Reliability Assessment
Because all organisations are different, this is a bespoke course and will be developed to meet the specific needs of your company.
Humans are a key part of the safety management system, which means human performance needs to be incorporated in risk assessment processes.
This course will enable organisations to apply methods for the prediction, assessment, and quantification of human performance within the risk assessment process.
This is an integral part of the Risk Management Maturity Model (RM3) from the Office of Rail and Road—which incorporates proportionate and appropriate hazard identification, risk assessment methods and the design of risk controls. These are a necessary basis for effective risk management.
- Understanding the strengths and weaknesses of human reliability assessment approaches, and how to identify when they should be applied in risk assessment.
- Understanding how human reliability assessment approaches can be used to identify and develop improvements in tasks and processes.
- Being able to undertake a basic human reliability assessment, covering:
- problem definition
- task analysis
- error identification
- risk model development
- quantification using the Railway Action Reliability Assessment method
- impact assessment, error reduction and problem evaluation.
Who should attend?Those who carry out risk assessments, as well as operations standards and engineering managers who want to develop human-centred improvements to the process and tasks they manage at work.
