SCIC Safety Case Specialist Workshop – ALARP Demonstration


As part of SCIC’s efforts to help industry build capability in the implementation of Safety Case, a series of specialist courses on the key elements of the Safety Case regime has been developed to provide in-depth training in specific technical fields.

ALARP Demonstration is one final aspect of Safety Care in which the regulator (MHD) requires Major Hazard Installations (MHIs) to demonstrate that risks are reduced to ALARP (as low as reasonably practical). This is a new concept for Singapore and the course aims to help participants understand how to write an effective ALARP demonstration, build industry competency in demonstrating ALARP for Safety Case and Improve the decision-making principles among MHIs to select the appropriate level of risk control measures proportionate to the level of risk.
