Event Information

DNV GL will present at RISK 2016 in Sydney from 18-20 May 2016.

Visit us at our booth!

Most accidents are due to a known threat that is addressed by regulations and company requirements, but where the safeguards have been allowed to degrade over time (technical, human or organizational). Hazard identification and processes for organizational learning have been shown to work, but during a major accident event, the barriers that were specified have not worked.

Attend our presentation:

08:45 - 10:00: Plenary session - 'Dynamic Barrier Management'.

DNV GL will present the latest thinking in operationalizing existing barrier management practices and using operational data to actively manage barrier degradation. Dynamic barrier management aims to make use of the data-rich operational environment to provide feedback on barrier conditions and change in risk on a real-time basis.
