Risk Reduction & ALARP
ALARP (As Low As Reasonably Practicable) is a commonly used but often misunderstood concept. The purpose of this course is to enable students to understand the hierarchy of risk reduction measures and the options for risk reduction in the project lifecycle. Students will be introduced to the concept of ALARP, practise applying it and learn how to demonstrate that risk has been reduced to ALARP levels.
