Where and when is this course offered?

Lunch'N'Learn New Plymouth with Trish Kerin, Director of IChemE Safety Centre - Mar 20, 2020
This 1 day course is offered in New Plymouth, Autolodge , Conference Room 1. NZD0 per attendee (Excl. GST).

Trish will present “Taming the wild river rapids – how process safety can apply outside the process industries”. Cost: free (sponsored by Safety Solutions)

On the 25th October 2016 the Thunder River Rapids ride at Dreamworld on Australia’s Gold Coast suffered a pump failure, resulting in the tragic deaths of four riders. This incident was investigated by the police and later a coronial inquest to determine how a tragedy like this could occur. As a process safety professional, it was interesting to follow the coronial inquest findings and then think about how process safety management may have helped to prevent this incident. Assuming that a process safety event can be defined as a high consequence or potential consequence low likelihood loss of control event, this incident had all the hallmarks, and there is a lot of common lessons for us all.
