The 3 Rs: Risk, Reliability and Resilience - What keeps our systems working? Register

Technical Presentation and End of Year Sundowner
This is the final event for the Risk Engineering Society for 2016, please come along to hear an entertaining speaker and enjoy a social atmosphere.

The admission fee includes beverages as well as catered finger foods from 5:30 to 7:30pm.

Risk and reliability are two sides of the coin, but how does resilience fit in? As the recent film “Sully” shows, human resilience often provides the last barrier against disaster. In this presentation, we will consider how Reliability Engineering provides a means of dealing with technical risk, but of equal importance is the role that Human Factors has played in improving reliability in workplaces and reducing organisational risk. Aviation, Nuclear Power Generation and the Military have demonstrated that the antidote to Risk is not just Reliability, but also building Resilience in the workplace. That means developing a solid human factors focus.
