Effective Risk Management

Introduction  The Institute of Quarrying Australia and the quarrying industry at large recognise the importance of managing safety risks.

Effective Risk Management processes are fundamental in realising significant gains in safety performance. When these processes are ineffective you send the wrong message to your workers and do little to improve safety at your site.

Duration The program is delivered over 1 Hour

Potential Participants  

Managers, supervisors and key support personnel are the primary target group for these webinars. There is a good opportunity to ask questions in an informal environment. Numbers are kept small to provide an opportunity for everyone.

CPD Points 1 point

Course Objectives

Mining legislation, Work Health and Safety legislation, and “duty of care” requirements in each State require quarry operators to manage safety using risk management principles. This webinar will assist operators in ensuring their risk management processes are effective. It cover issues such as:

  • Why do risk management processes fail?
  • Risk profiles
  • How to ensure your risk management processes are effective
  • Incident investigations

Participants will also be given practical examples of how small scale quarries have achieved significant safety improvement through effectively managing risk.
