Accredited training in risk and safety management
Risktec offers a structured programme of accredited risk management modules leading to formal post-graduate qualifications in Risk and Safety Management. Courses are delivered in partnership with Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU) in the UK. The programme aims to help bridge the competence gap in hazardous industries.
Building competence through resourcing
Organisations typically look to external consultants to bridge a 'gap' in technical know-how or manpower. Generally, extra resource is needed to support specific projects or to gain access to expertise that the organisation doesn't already have.
From engineering safety to competency
Network Rail's Interim Voice Radio System (IVRS) is a digital radio system enabling direct communication between train crew and signallers in an emergency. Risktec originally developed the operational safety case and has helped deliver safety training to IVRS users. IVRS is now operational on a significant stretch of the West Coast mainline and its use in designated areas is mandated.
Mind the gap – bridging the competence gap
In her recent speech to the International Institute of Risk and Safety Management in London, the Chair of the UK Health and Safety Executive, Judith Hackitt CBE, acknowledged the role of Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) professionals and talked about the need to ensure that everyone is competent to play their part in assessing and managing risk.
