Leading risk, safety, and human factors consultancy Corporate Risk Associates (CRA) has announced that its annual Risk and Safety Forum will take place in Oxfordshire on the 14th and 15th of September.

The event, which is a highlight of the industry calendar for risk and safety practitioners, will be held at the Oxford Belfry Hotel, where delegates will benefit from a rich programme of training and networking opportunities attended by senior risk, safety, security, and human factors experts operating in the nuclear, transportation and other low-carbon energy sectors.

This year, the event will explore risk and safety in the digital age. Digital solutions are fast becoming integral to low-carbon infrastructure projects, and how these use and manage data can be transformative in maximising their effectiveness to enhance risk and safety practices. The low-carbon smart cities, energy systems and transport networks of the future will all have transformational digital solutions at their core.

Attendees will hear from sector specialists on the latest developments in areas such as climate change risk and resilience, cyber security, and probabilistic safety analysis, with presenters drawn from leading companies, academic institutions, and trade bodies.

Last year’s edition featured expert speakers from the International Atomic Energy Agency, Rolls-Royce, the National Nuclear Laboratory, Assystem, the Nuclear Institute, Burgess Salmon, Nuclear Risk Insurers, and Mace, among others. This year a similarly packed agenda will ensure attendees get maximum value from the first on-location Forum since 2019.

CRA Managing Director Jasbir Sidhu said:

“We are delighted to be welcoming back our esteemed colleagues and peers to a fully in-person event after a long period of uncertainty. We will have a fantastic agenda packed with experienced specialists from some of the leading companies and organisations in the low-carbon energy sectors. The insights shared at the forum will be at the cutting edge of industry practice today.”

More information about the event, including registration, will be published in due course.
