14th CRA Risk & Safety Forum 2023
CRA in-person event, The Grand Hotel, Birmingham, UK
The two-day event is a highlight of the industry calendar for risk and safety practitioners. Delegates will benefit from a rich programme of training and networking opportunities attended by senior risk, safety, security, regulation, and human factors experts operating in the nuclear, transportation and other safety critical industries.
The theme of the 14th annual CRA Risk & Safety Forum, will be:
SAFETY LEADERSHIP – INCREASING THE POOL OF PROFESSIONALS IN SAFETY CRITICAL INDUSTRIES
It is widely accepted that in the safety critical industries such as Nuclear, there is a significant shortage of knowledge and skills. Some key technical areas in safety management, e.g., Human Factors, Safety Case development, Hazards and Risk assessment are particularly lacking suitably qualified and experienced human resources. This year the CRA Risk & Safety Forum will focus on why there is a lack of skills in safety management and how we plan to address this shortfall so that major infrastructure programmes are not impacted by a lack of skills in key technical areas.
Discussions around embracing skills diversity, widening the collection and use of data, implementing digitally enabled system & processes, communicating risk, learning from experience, risk versus reward, etc., will be included in the programme. Finally, as previous Risk & Safety Forums, there will be a a wide range of technically challenging Risk, Safety, and Human Factors presentations.
