TECSA Academy: training courses on June, 4th-5th 2019 – Rome

6 March 2019

TECSA Academy, the division of TECSA S.r.l. dedicated to specialized training, promotes the following courses in collaboration with Istituto Informa and EPC Editore:

  • Risk management and analysis using the BowTie method, June, 4th – Rome (program);
  • Analysis of the operational experience of the organizations, June, 5th – Rome (program).

The courses will be held in Italian.

Both courses are valid as an update for RSPP, ASPP and Coordinators according to Legislative Decree 81/08.

Course description: Risk management and analysis using the BowTie method

A “barrier-based” approach compliant with ISO 31000 for the systemic management of risks in organizations

The “Bow-Tie” is today one of the most common methods for risk analysis. Its strength lies mainly in its intuitive and powerful graphic notation, which ensures an unparalleled communicative ability in transmitting in an easy and immediate way the information contained therein both to professionals and to all stakeholders. However, considering the Bow-Tie as a mere, yet powerful, graphical display tool of the organization’s risk map is very simplistic.
Regardless of the type, size, and complexity of an organization, the rules of our country on safety (at work, fire, Seveso risks, data, food) and more, increasingly require the adoption of management systems that include risk management, to be carried out congruently with the requirements of the ISO 31000 technical standard. The Bow-Tie, taking advantage of its “barrier-based” perspective, the extensive taxonomy applicable to its elements and the advanced use of data undoubtedly represents a modern and excellent tool to meet the various requirements of management systems, which must prove effective and efficient over time.

The definition of a correct risk management strategy cannot be separated from the risk assessment and naturally must, therefore, be conducted through a series of fundamental steps: analysis of the causes, identification of the consequences, identification of the barriers (technical and organizational) suitable for preventing or mitigating the risks, identification of the critical issues of the system under examination, creating in parallel strategic planning alternatives (design oriented to obtaining and guaranteeing performance). The independent protection levels (“barriers”) have a fundamental role to play: both technical and organizational, both intended as preventive measures and as mitigating measures of consequences, well represented in a “Bow-Tie” evaluation diagram.

The course wants to provide:
– The context of the ISO 31000 / ISO 31010 technical regulations
– Basic information for building a BowTie;
– How to add value to the BowTie;
– Practical examples.

Course description: Analysis of the operational experience of the organizations

“Root Cause Analysis” of accidents, “near miss” and non-compliance

Regardless of the type, size, and complexity of an organization, our country’s safety regulations (as well as the most modern international standards of reference) increasingly require the adoption of systems that contemplate risk management over time (let’s think, for example, at the ISO 45001). The paradigm of continuous improvement of management systems requires that organizations determine the opportunities for improvement deriving from accidents, “near-miss” or, more generally, non-compliance, in order to develop the corrective actions to be taken to avoid the recurrence of similar events.

The course will show, even starting from real and complex incidental events, with reference to the most modern international standards, as an organic recomposition of the elements that characterized the negative event can be obtained according to an engineering and structured approach, starting from the principles that govern the establishment of danger, with clear reference to the risk assessment and the study of the human factor.

The course wants to provide:
– Theoretical principles of analysis of accidents, near miss and non-compliance
– Foundations of “root cause analysis” and of evaluation, also quantitative, of human error (HRA)
– Information on the main structured analysis techniques and reference standards (ISO 31000/31010)
– Introduction to forensic engineering and investigation
– Practical examples.
