DuPont workshop on Operational Risk Management addresses potential weak spots

19 May 2016

Operations, production and safety managers interested in developing an effective, new approach to improving operational risk management are to attend a workshop organised by DuPont Sustainable Solutions (DSS), the safety management and operational excellence consulting arm of DuPont, on 8 June 2016.

Held at the Radisson Blu Manchester Airport hotel in Manchester, this workshop will focus on what can go wrong when the critical interplay of risk tolerance, risk perception and reflex decision-making fails and does not align with robust hazard identification and disciplined processes.

“At DuPont, we have come to realise that operational risk requires a much broader approach than is commonly used. Operational Risk Management needs to address not only process and behavioural safety, but also operational excellence. The workshop will look at common risk generators and will set out an innovative concept for tackling these,” says John Cockburn-Evans, DSS Market Leader UK & Eire.

“We will discuss the role of external influences on people’s behaviour, including “affective psychology”, and examine how risk and reward thinking can be used to improve personal performance and consequent decision making.”

Four DSS presenters with extensive operational and risk management experience in the field across a wide range of industries will outline the DuPont concept of operational risk management, explain strategies to mitigate process risk and also discuss the challenges participants face on a daily basis.

Registration for attendance of this free event closes on May 31st, 2016 at
