Assistant Director, Institutional Safety and Mission Assurance
3:30 PM Workshop G: Probabilistic risk assessment: The basis for recognizing emerging operational risks
During this session we will discuss how a systematic and comprehensive methodology to evaluate risks associated with complex engineering and technological systems can help companies identify emerging risk to their critical operations.
Through the use of case studies and use-cases, we will explore how specific tools and processes can help approach operational risks with:
- A quantitative evaluation of system safety
- Identification, selection, and screening of Initiation events
- Definition and modeling scenarios Initiating and Pivotal Events Modeling Data development and risk quantification uncertainty analysis
Risk importance ranking and cutset analysis for risk reduction and communication
9:25 AM Understanding the connection between culture and safety, environmental and financial performance
• What’s the link between culture, reliability and Operational Excellence?
• With so much volatility and risk in hazardous industries today – what impact can culture change can have on safety performance? environmental performance? compliance? nancial performance?
• Where should the responsibility for changing culture sit in an organization?
• Can you measure organizational culture?
• Where do you start when it comes to changing culture?
8:10 AM NASA Risk and Safety Culture: Minimizing the risk of a catastrophe by bringing the lessons of space home
As the Chief of the Safety and Test Operations Division at NASA’s Johnson Space Center (JSC), David Loyd understands the challenge of integrating cutting-edge risk management practices and techniques throughout a large organization with an extraordinarily diverse mission. In this riveting presentation, you will learn how past mission and institutional failures helped NASA establish a safety culture and a uniform risk management environment. David will also discuss how the loss prevention industry has in uenced NASA’s approach to sustaining its unique, yet aging, infrastructure.
• How the lessons learned at NASA can augment and enhance the strong operational risk management capabilities that already exist within hazardous industries
• How NASA’s safety capabilities have been speci cally developed to minimize the risk of loss of life and loss of mission: What can the Energy and Utilities industry learn from this?
• Moving beyond the use of historical data - specifically:
- Proactive and predictive: designed to give you the information you need when you need it, not when it’s too late
- Designed to flag warnings early: Before catastrophic events occur
- Demonstrated: These capabilities have been used at NASA for years
