QRA revisited Register

Quantitative Risk Assessment (QRA) forms an essential part of the safety case regime for operating major hazard facilities. Local developments such as Western Australia adopting the Model Work Health & Safety law in 2020, and international moves to adopt or strengthen QRA in their regulatory environment makes this an important subject for anyone involved operating a major hazard facility.

Gerry Burke (Principal Safety Consultant, Atkins) and Colin Crowley (Atkins Head of Technical Safety Perth) will present on the use of QRA in both the onshore and offshore environments and using case studies will illustrate how the tool is used to demonstrate that risks are being managed to As Low As Reasonably Practicable.
