ALARP (As Low As Reasonably Practicable) is a commonly used but often misunderstood concept. The purpose of this module 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 and how to demonstrate that risk has been reduced to ALARP levels.
Assessment is in the form of an essay combined with activities (e.g. exercises, discussions, etc.).
After completing the course you will be able to:
1. Identify different options available for risk reduction 2. Decide when risk reduction measures can best be used 3. Describe the concepts of “tolerability of risk” and “As Low As Reasonably Practicable (ALARP)” 4. Apply the ALARP concept and conduct an ALARP assessment to an appropriate level of detail.
