NEW 2012 Global TapRooT® Summit Session Added to Safety, Process Safety and Risk Management Track

A new 30-minute talk has been added to the Safety, Process Safety and Risk Management Track session, “Risk Management & Safety,” (Thursday, March 1 at 10:50 a.m.). Australian risk management expert and TapRooT® Instructor, Jim Whiting, will present “Using the New Risk Management Standard ANSI Z690.2 : 2011 to Assess the Maturity of your Risk Management System.”

How mature is your organization’s RMS? This 30-minute workshop session focuses on one part of the 2-day pre-Summit course, Risk Management Best Practices, i.e. how to obtain assurance of the maturity, quality, adequacy of your RMS measured against conformity with the new ANSI Z690.2 Standard for RM Systems. This Standard provides specific audit criteria and guidelines for the principles, framework, and process required of a ‘Best Practice’ organization. An audit process using ANSI Z690.2 criteria can be performed on both an Internal / First Party and even a External / Third Party basis. Either way the resulting benefits center on being able to demonstrate internally and/or externally that your organization is managing risks in an adequate way. Hence, the audit results can provide confidence and assurance to your own people as well as external stakeholders. The workshop will discuss how the evidence-seeking questions/ activities in such an audit can be constructed, delivered and their results analyzed and reported.
