This category contains the full learning materials for each of Risktec's university-validated modules.  It is necessary to complete an appropriate induction course before being granted access to these modules.  Each module will open to students on the scheduled start date.

Risk Reduction & ALARP

Outline:  This is a module within all three postgraduate programmes (PgCert, PgDip and MSc).  This course consists of approximately 16 hours self study followed by a lengthy period of research and writing, culminating in the submission of an assignment. Learners have 8 weeks to complete the module, which is worth 10 postgraduate credits.

Purpose:  ALARP (As Low As Reasonably Practicable) is a commonly used but often misunderstood concept. The purpose of this module is to enable students to understand the hierarchy of risk reduction measures and the options for risk reduction in the project lifecycle. Students will be introduced to the concept of ALARP and how to demonstrate that risk has been reduced to ALARP levels.
