Course Objectives

At the end of this IRES training course, participants will learn:

1.     Introduction to Transportation Risk Management: Provide an overview of the key concepts and principles of risk management in the context of transportation, including the significance of risk in transportation systems.

2.     Risk Identification: Teach Participants how to identify and categorize risks in different transportation modes such as road, rail, air, maritime, and public transit. This may include examining both internal and external sources of risk.

3.     Risk Assessment Techniques: Introduce various quantitative and qualitative risk assessment methods used in transportation, including risk matrices, fault tree analysis, event tree analysis, and probabilistic risk assessment (PRA).

4.     Safety Culture: Discuss the importance of safety culture within transportation organizations and how it affects risk management. Explore case studies of organizations with strong safety cultures.

5.     Incident Investigation: Teach Participants how to investigate transportation incidents and accidents, emphasizing root cause analysis and the importance of learning from past events.

6.     Risk Mitigation Strategies: Cover various strategies and measures to mitigate transportation risks, such as preventive maintenance, safety training, emergency response plans, and technology implementation (e.g., collision avoidance systems).

7.     Resilience and Recovery: Explore strategies for building resilience into transportation systems, ensuring that they can recover quickly from disruptions and disasters.

8.     Cost-Benefit Analysis: Introduce the concept of cost-benefit analysis as it applies to transportation risk management, helping students understand how to make informed decisions regarding risk mitigation investments.
