Content: The knowledge and skill of business risk management help safety professionals to link safety issues to a boarder spectrum of corporate risk management framework. This seminar will highlight some of the key elements on this approach. The speaker will discuss the links between safety and corporate risk, with case study sharing on disasters at Texas City; Perrier and SARS to demonstrate on how they can adopt a wider business risk context. The seminar will concentrate on effective approach of risks management at corporate level, including:- 1. propose a simple framework for systemic risk management, such as compliance to Sarbanes Oxley (SOX) and the internal control based on the Guidance for Directors on the Combined Code (1999); 2. apply International Standards such as ISO 18001 and ISO 14001 and other proposed standards for risk management and business continuity planning. The seminar will also look into the subject of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and a pro-active safety management system.
