Dam Risk Assessment Short Courses
Due to popular demand, there is consideration to run another Risk Assessment Short Course. To expres your interest in this, please advise Michelle Miller at the secretariat [email protected]
COURSE FOCUS & OUTLINE
This short course is in response to a keen interest shown in the dam industry in the use of risk assessment as a key tool to better manage Australia’s dams and to ensure both those experienced and those less experienced in dam risk assessment are well informed in its value and application. Presentations will provide both basic and more detailed information.
Day 1 will discuss – what is risk assessment, why it is so important for dam safety, its strong take up in Australia and use of ANCOLD’s risk assessment guideline and proposed update.
This leads into planning for risk assessment to meet dam owner due diligence, duty of care, regulatory and business needs and identifying the 5 key components of risk assessment process. The rest of the day will cover 2 of the 5 key components – Risk Identification (including hazards & failure modes) and Probability Analysis (including approaches, load states and scenarios, uncertainties and estimation of likelihood).
Day 2 will briefly recap key aspects of Day 1 to lead into covering the 3 remaining key components – Consequences Analysis (including approach, failure scenarios, dam break and inundation mapping, consequences estimation and key issues), Risk Evaluation (including risk estimation, tolerable risk criteria, actions need including ALARP) and Risk Reduction & Residual Risk Outcomes (including reduction options, adequacy of residual risk, risk reduction strategies and long-term risk management).
The program below provides further information.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND
The course is designed to be of interest to all levels of dam industry professionals and operators from those relatively new to the industry wishing to understand the basics of dam risk assessment, to the those more experienced in dam engineering and risk management wishing to brush up on their knowledge and latest developments, to dam owners/managers and dam regulators wishing to better understand the value and use of risk assessment in dam safety. It could also be of interest to professionals in other similar risk assessed industries.
