  • All Management Roles
  • Accountable Managers, Safety or Risk Post Holders
  • Prospective Managers looking to elevate their risk & safety management skills.


The course introduces the discrete elements of a modern risk management process through the development of a Safety Management System (SMS). The course demonstrates how they can be used to manage risk within modern socio-technical systems. The establishment of an effective SMS is an increasingly popular methodology for the management of risk in complex and safety critical systems. The course will give candidates the ability of building and adapting safety and risk systems within their own area of expertise. The concept of SMS is not new but is increasingly being applied by regulation to more high-performance industries and accreditation schemes. The course uses high residual-risk industry SMS frameworks as benchmarks. The principles are explored by consultant practitioners using a combination of theory and extensive practical experience. The boundaries between other management systems, such as Quality and Environmental, will be discussed.

By the end of this training, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the foundations of safety management systems.
  • Identify strategies to mitigate the impact of new and developing technologies by applying SMS principles.
  • Develop the structure of their own Safety & Risk Management System against a benchmark.

Format of the Course:
