R2A Event 2014

Richard RobinsonDue Diligence

Following on from the success of our client and colleagues function in 2013, we will be hosting another event on Thursday, 6th February 2014 from 3pm to 5pm.

Richard will launch the 2014 update of the R2A Text.  R2A has concluded that the risk and liability world is changing so fast at the moment that, until further notice, the text will be updated annually at least.

Matters of interest include:

  • The introduction of the Rail Safety National Law which is complimentary but subordinate to the model WHS legislation.
  • The expected approval in the new year of the Engineers Australia Safety Case Guideline (3 Edition). This specifically rejects the Risk Management Standard (AS 31000) as being able to positively demonstrate due diligence for high consequence – low frequency events.
  • Why SFAIRP (so far as is reasonably practicable) can never equal ALARP (as low as reasonably practicable) legally.
  • The logical limitations of Monte Carlo simulation for demonstrating project due diligence.

Richard will also outline the outlook for 2014.

We expect a lively discussion so please pencil in the date, and join us on the 6th February.
