Risk Assessment In the round Register

Presented by Ian Mash.


Risk Practitioner.


Ian Mash is a risk practitioner with 22 years’ experience in the transport sector, and has delivered or assisted the delivery of every fleet of new trains in NSW in the last 15 years. Ian is a Director of Assured Rail projects, is a Fellow of the IMechE, and is a Member of the IMechE’s Council.


Risk Assessment – in the round


The process of risk assessment is so fundamental not only to the role of the engineer, but also to the successful functioning of a business. Drawing on his considerable experience in leading and reviewing risk assessments, Ian will deliver ‘in the round’ –  a warts and all session in which the audience can expect to learn a thing or to, do a thing or two, and perhaps leave with a renewed appreciation for what ‘good’ can look like in the risk assessment process.


Ian will cover some risk assessment theory and then move on to discuss who should be involved, and how to do the key process steps well, including risk scoring. The presentation draws out lessons hard learned, to provide the opportunity to others to avoid making past mistakes.


Ian will cut through the confusion on the definition of ‘So Far As Is Reasonably Practicable’ (SFAIRP), and the audience will participate in a worked example of how simple it really is to demonstrate SFAIRP.
