Why Choose this Training Course?

This AZTech training course covers case studies of major failures and disasters to promote learning from failures using root cause analysis.  This will be through examining known and topical cases, as well as cases related to the particular own experience of the delegates. This will be based on the analysis of reported disasters to understand the root causes of why those incidents occurred and how such crises unfold over time and hence how can we learn generic lessons from those disasters.   The training course is based on material that the author has used in teaching courses on reliability and maintenance engineering at various universities and industries for over 20 years, where the proposed models and case studies covered were used in the teachings, and also draws on material from the research carried out by the author which is being compiled into a book.

This AZTech training course will feature:

  • Why do we need to learn from failures?
  • Aspects of risk management and risk assessment
  • An interdisciplinary approach, combining risk analysis, reliability engineering, decision analysis and management science
  • Socio technical aspects of risk and disasters

 

What are the Goals?

By the end of this AZTech training course, participants will be able to:

  • Understanding of safety, risk and continuity of operations
  • Development of people management skills
  • Mastering techniques that can enhance plant reliability
  • How to conduct benchmarking and quality systems auditing
