Risk and safety management professional

Identify hazards, analyse the associated risk and propose ways of treating it

In highly regulated industries where the impact of loss is high, a risk and safety management professional works collaboratively with other disciplines. They establish the context of the problem, identify all hazards including those with the potential to cause a major accident, analyse the associated risk, evaluate the risk and propose ways of treating the risk such that it is eliminated or reduced and maintained as low as reasonably practicable. They are required to address means of monitoring and reviewing actual risk and safety performance, and communicating and consulting on risk issues with all relevant stakeholders. This apprenticeship will develop you into a rounded professional capable of working competently in your chosen industry, but with the risk and safety management knowledge and that are transferable across all highly regulated industries. On completion, you’ll achieve a master’s degree in risk and safety management.
