Risk Education Network

Image

The purpose of this network is to support the delivery of the teaching and learning of risk concepts.

The network's primary focus is on the teaching of health and safety risk by higher education institutions in engineering related subjects. Much of the content is, however, expected to be transferable to other types of risk, such as project / financial, and other technical subjects as well as management and business studies. Some of the resources may also be useful for those teaching in further and compulsory education.

Some parts of the network are open to non-members including a diary of events, useful links and various documents that make the case for risk education. 

You are welcome to join this network if you are delivering teaching and learning in higher, further or compulsory education, are willing to share ideas and resources, looking to enhance your teaching of risk concepts or are planning to teach risk concepts.

You are also welcome to join this network if you are not in the educational sector, have relevant industrial experience and are willing to donate resources, ideas or time to help deliver teaching and learning in risk concepts.

Although this network is not aimed at students the list of courses may be of interest.

What's New

  • Hazards 30 - Virtual Process Safety Conference
    IChemE's annual Hazards conference will be held virtually this year on 26/27 November. The conference programme will offer practical process safety insight from industry practitioners, researchers and regulators, including examples of good practice, new approaches and valuable lessons learnt from past incidents and near-misses. Session themes include chemical hazards, DSEAR/ATEX, fire and gas detection, regulation, asset integrity, safety leadership, risk management, lessons forgotten, environmental protection and many more. There will also be a guest lecture from Steve Rae, entitled 'Piper Alpha - an Accident or a Predictable Surprise?' Steve survived the 1988 Piper Alpha disaster and has since dedicated his career to improving safety culture across the industry. Presentations will be delivered as part of a live timetable, with live Q&A, and will also be available to watch on-demand. Find out more and register at www.icheme.org/hazards30
