ABOUT THIS COURSE
Making informed decisions requires understanding of risk and benefits of our alternatives, the technology involved and the factors affecting our decisions. Risk management and safety engineering is a discipline that provides the technique and tools to evaluate the effects and benefits or engineering decision alternatives, allowing decision makers to make risk-informed decision. This Risk Management and Safety Engineering Certificate Course consists of a series of training workshops that covers the key techniques and tools commonly use in risk assessment and decision-making analyses.
This introductory course, which is the first of the series providing structured, applied and practical approach in conducting risk assessments and decision analyses, addresses the basic concept and theory in Risk Management and Safety Engineering, as well as providing an overview of the common tools and techniques in safety risk assessment. This course is necessary for participants to capture the basic knowledge for future workshops on Intermediate and Advanced Topics in Risk Management and Safety Engineering course.
Session 1 by Dr Vincent Ho
This session covers the introduction to Course, definition of risk, risk acceptance criteria, Bayesian analysis, risk management principles. Upon completion of this session, participants will be able to communicate with each other on a common set of risk language.
Session 2 by KH Tan
This session provides an overview of basic risk identification tools including but does not limited to Failure Mode and Effect Analysis, HAZOP, HAZID, applications of risk matrix. Work examples and case studies will be used to aid p articipants in understanding the applications of these tools upon completion of the session.
Session 3 by Lisa Shi
This session provides an overview of bow tie analysis, which is gaining its popularity as it helps simplify risk assessment by allowing one to conceptualise the interaction of causes, controls and consequences of a risk. Work examples and case studies will be used to aid p articipants in understanding the applications of bow tie analysis upon completion of the session.
Session 4 by Dorothy Chan
Human factor and human reliability analysis are key components of risk assessments. This session provides an overview of basic human factor tools used in risk assessments. Work examples and case studies will be used to aid p articipants in understanding the applications of human factor analysis upon completion of the session.
Session 5 by Dr Vincent Ho
Making informed decisions requires understanding of risk and benefits of our alternatives, the technology involved and the factors affecting our decisions. This session covers b ayesian data analysis, introduction to decision analysis and the analytical hierarchical process (AHP). Work examples will be used to aid p articipants in understanding the applications of AHP upon completion of the session.
Session 6 by Dr Vincent Ho
This session provides an overview of tree tools such as fault tree analysis and event tree analysis . Work examples will be used to aid p articipants in understanding the applications of fault trees and event trees upon completion of the session.

KH specialises in Risk Management and has over 13 years of experience in Railway Project in Hong Kong , China , Taiwan , Macau , Singapore and Malaysia . He has extensive experience in whole life-cycle system safety, risk, reliability, availability and maintainability analyses from feasibility/technical study, to design and commissioning of stations, depots, tunnel, trackworks and railway core systems as well as operating & maintenance feasibility study for new line.
He was the System Assurance Manager for a number of railway projects in Hong Kong and has been seconded to high speed rail overseeing T&C and operations of railway. He chaired risk identification workshops using technique such as HAZOP, SWIFT, conducted risk analyses including Design Safety Review, FMECA, QRA and compiled Operational Safety Reports for different railway projects in the region.
Lisa is currently the Head of Risk Management for EC Harris in Asia . Lisa specialises in risk, systems assurance and business continuity management and has involved extensively in supporting organisations in Asia, Australia and UK in safety planning, development and review of risk management system. These include provision of coaching and training to organisations on safety awareness, operational risk and contingency planning on implementing practical risk solutions and strengthening their in-house risk management capability. Examples include development of ALARP assessment framework, operational risk management and incident management using bow-tie approach.
Dorothy is the Manager, Enterprise Risk Management for the Hong Kong Jockey Club responsible for establishing and maintaining a risk and control framework and policies through embedding structured reviews to strengthen corporate governance, and enhance business value for long-term sustainability and growth of the Club. Prior to this role, she was with Lloyd's Register Asia as one of the Human Factors specialists supporting a wide range of organizations (including railway, shipping, aviation, oils and gas) for the development and implementation of human factors programs and human error assessment. Dorothy also has extensive experiences in integrating human factors analysis with risk assessment and safety culture improvement initiatives. She was also a human factors expert in incident investigation.
Vincent Ho, PhD, PE
Vincent is a career risk management professional with over twenty-five years of experience. He is the Safety & Quality Manager of the China & International Business Division at MTR, overseeing the safety governance of MTR's railway operations in the mainland and overseas. Prior to joining MTR, Dr Ho had been a consultant specializing in risk assessment and management for transportation, nuclear power plants, specials weapons, and various complex engineering systems.
Dr Ho is the Chairman of the Hong Kong Association of Risk Management and Safety ( www.hkarms.org ), whose mission is to foster and promote the knowledge and understanding of risk assessment and management techniques and their applications. He also a committee member of the IMechE HK Branch, HKIE SSC, and HKIE-MMNC.
