Risk Management Best Practices & Opportunity Based Thinking

In all your HSEQ risk domains and management Systems – are you frustrated that the outcomes of your current risk assessments performed in your organization lack consistency, confidence, reliability, and accuracy?

Do you & your facilitators and participants of risk assessments have the knowledge & skills to use the most effective RA methods and tools?

This course is a live participative learning experience with interactive engagement by discussion, group & individual exercises & quizzes taught by an experienced Risk Management expert. As such participant numbers are restricted to a maximum of 16.

With ZOOM breakout rooms of 4 participants each.

Risk & Opportunity Based Thinking ROBT & Risk & Opportunity Assessments R&OA are strongly promoted by the latest versions of ISO 31000 / ISO 45001 / ANSI Z10 / ISO 14001 / ISO 9001 / ANSI Z590.3 as definitely needed in each and every R&O-informed decision-making process.

ROBT and R&OA need to be applied in all aspects of your business without being confused and undermined by subjective beliefs, biases and risk perceptions.

The course has been continually improved. It still covers the core Best Practices that have made facilitation and participation in R&O assessments as accurate and reliable as possible. Improvements include:

  • updates to Standards ANSI/ASSP/ISO 31000:2018 – RM Guidelines and IEC/ISO 31010:2019 Risk Assessment Techniques
  • an interactive WORD template that takes the user through the R&OA process and when completed serves as a diligent entry to your R&O Register or R&O Dashboard;
  • new emphasis on Risk & Opportunity Conversations ROC Talk as part of important Communication & Consultation processes needed in better HSEQ management.
  • neuroscience-based explanations of the variability of an individual’s R&O perceptions and risk-taking; and
  • each participant receives free use [with attribution] all files of course handouts, copies of all slides, useful reference materials, and sample PPTX / PDF files accumulated and developed by the presenter over the last 30+ years of HSEQ Risk Management consultancy & training.

The presenter is Australian Jim Whiting, an international risk management expert, and long-time TapRooT® Instructor, who demonstrates that a SnapCharT® can be used for graphical representation of a R&O Scenario Maps. The course is facilitated in a participative workshop format.

Jim brings his risk management and root cause analysis experience and best practices from around the world (Australia, North America, Asia, Africa, and Europe) to this course. If you are interested in advancing the quality of your risk assessments in ALL risk domains, but particularly HSEQ, then attend and profit from this course.
