What is this course about?
The international guidelines document on risk assessment (ISO 31000) is silent on best practise risk assessment tools and techniques. The related guideline document, ISO 31010 Risk management -- Risk Assessment Techniques is likewise not useful to guide the adoption and use of best in class risk assessment, management tools and techniques, as it makes cursory remarks about potential tools and techniques.
The revised ISO 14001: 2015 standard on the other hand requires that established criteria are used when assessing the significance of environmental impacts and aspects. The ISO 14001: 2015 standard continues in Annex A that there is no single method for determining significant environmental aspects but warns that the method and criteria selected must provide consistent results. Many organisations have selected, adopted and are using risk assessment and management processes, techniques and criteria to determine the significance of their environmental impacts and aspects.
The objective of this three day course is to empower delegates to adopt and use best in class practises in qualitative environmental risk assessment and management criteria, tools and techniques.
Is this course for you?
If you are tasked with conducting environmental risk assessments and generating environmental risk management plans and if you are interested in learning how to use best in class criteria, tools and techniques then this three day course is for you.
If you are interested in the entire ISO 31000 guideline, including the risk management framework and context, then the five day master class, Environmental Risk Assessment and Management (CEM 5.3.1) may be the right course for you.
