The 5-day System Safety Engineering Management Master Class, presented by AMOG Consulting, focuses on the management of the System Safety Program and the interface with the Engineering Project life-cycle. Development and maintenance of the Safety Case is explored using specialised tools such as GSN. The course explores tools and techniques required for risk reduction as well as the influence of Software and Human Factors on the safety argument. Topics such as Legislative Compliances, Duty of Care and ALARP Arguments are explored as well as the role of domain specified regulatory standards.
The demand for superior technology and greater inter-operability within modern systems has seen a substantial growth in the sophistication and flexibility requirements of new designs. This has resulted in a significant increase in the reliance on modern, software intensive, control systems that are extremely complex and can include any number of potentially safety critical failure modes. Acknowledging this challenge, international and domestic governing and regulatory bodies are requiring comprehensive and robust demonstrations of how safety has been considered for these systems, in all facets of the life-cycle – from concept to disposal. This demonstration is often referred to as the Safety Case. A highly interactive worked example on day five of the program puts all of the elements of the master class into practice and ensures that participants take away a thorough working knowledge of the management of system safety engineering.
Recognised for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) by Engineers Australia (EA) in accordance with EA CPD Guidelines.
Participants generally have four or more years of experience and come from a range of engineering specialisations including Aerospace, Civil Maritime, Construction, Consultants, Defence, Electrical Utilities, Offshore Oil and Gas, Manufacturing, Mining, Power, and Transport.
For those who are involved in the design, maintenance, operation and/or management of systems or equipment with potential safety implications including:
Explores the unique and varied language associated with System Safety.
Standards & Compliance
Justify the application of a particular standard through the impact it has on assurance and compliance.
System Safety Paradigms
Comparing different paradigms to management approaches to analysing and measuring ‘safety’ and the concept of ‘acceptable risk’.
The Safety Case
What is a Safety Case, and how does it relate to the System Safety Process, specifically the Safety Assessment?
Safety Case Construction
An overview of the use of GSN to formulate and present the Safety Case argument in a clear and unambiguous manner.
Safety Case Maintenance
Most systems undergo changes in use and design, therefore it is important that the engineering team maintain the Safety Case.
System Safety and Project Lifecycle
Investigates the steps within the generic system safety process, and considers the inputs to and outputs from the process. It then relates the process to the generic project lifecycle.
System Safety Engineering Process
Examines a typical approach to conducting a system safety program including the definition of safety requirements through probability budgets and verification of those requirements.
Managing System Safety Programs, Constraints and Assumptions
Examines methods of managing the overall Safety Program (SP) and the importance of assumptions and constraints as a control on the level of effort and a demonstration of system bounds.
An overview of hazard identification techniques and their use.
An overview of hazard assessment techniques and their use.
Hazard Identification and Analysis
This guided practical consolidates the techniques in the hazard identification and assessment modules by allowing the participants to analyse a hypothetical system for hazards through a workshop.
Techniques for identifying, analysing and evaluating risk reduction strategies.
Software Safety Engineering Process
Examines a typical approach to managing a software safety program.
Software Safety Standards
The management of software safety standards and their impact on assurance and compliance.
What is Human Factors Engineering and how can it assist in design and safety analysis?
An interactive workshop activity will be held at the end of the course in order to consolidate all of the System Safety Principles.
