SMMI-LR Seminar Series 2015

Risk Management and Risk Assessment is a term that is everywhere today, how did we ever manage without it? Is the term so often used or misused that it is of little value?

A different approach to the assurance of engineering design safety started in the UK nuclear industry in the late 1950’s. This presentation will revisit the fundamental objectives of the approach, and seek to answer several questions:

  • Are the objectives of risk management still appropriate today?
  • What degree of risk management is required in ship design?
  • What the professional engineer needs today.
