Corporate Risk Associates (CRA), an industry leading consulting firm specialising in risk, safety, and human factors, is pleased and excited to announce that its 14th annual Risk and Safety Forum is scheduled to be held in Birmingham on the 20th and 21st of September 2023.

The two-day event, which is a highlight of the industry calendar for risk and safety practitioners, will be held at the Grand Hotel, Birmingham. Delegates will benefit from a rich programme of training and networking opportunities attended by senior risk, safety, security, regulation, and human factors experts operating in the nuclear, transportation and other safety critical industries.

The theme of the 14th annual CRA Risk & Safety Forum, will be:



It is widely accepted that in the safety critical industries such as Nuclear, there is a significant shortage of knowledge and skills. Some key technical areas in safety management, e.g., Human Factors, Safety Case development, Hazards and Risk assessment are particularly lacking suitably qualified and experienced human resources. With reference to the nuclear industry, when the industry was stagnating, skills development took a back seat, such that when the nuclear renaissance manifested itself, the shortfalls became prevalent.

This year the CRA Risk & Safety Forum will focus on why there is a lack of skills in safety management and how we plan to address this shortfall so that major infrastructure programmes are not impacted by a lack of skills in key technical areas.

Discussions around embracing skills diversity, widening the collection and use of data, implementing digitally enabled system & processes, communicating risk, learning from experience, risk versus reward, etc., will be included in the programme. Finally, as previous Risk & Safety Forums, there will be a a wide range of technically challenging Risk, Safety, and Human Factors presentations.
