Risk Management on Overseas Programmes (RMOP) Course
Risk Management on Overseas Programmes (RMOP) Training Course
The two-day Risk Management on Overseas Programmes (RMOP) course is designed to respond to the growing number of requests we are receiving from expedition and mineral/oil exploration companies as well as Non-Government Organisations (NGO’s) who operate in remote overseas environments.
In particular, the RMOP course is appropriate for directors, managers and operational staff who are involved in and have responsibility (and a Duty of Care) for the planning, operating and evaluation of overseas programmes. The course looks at the responsibilities of an organisation and provides an overview of Risk Management systems and procedures that can be used to minimise Risk on overseas projects. The course looks at prevention and also what is likely to happen if you do have an incident.
These courses are intended to assist in ensuring that overseas activities are as safe as possible and that fault based incidents do not occur in the first place. Importantly, these courses also demonstrate proactive steps by client companies in satisfying their Duty of Care and due diligence in the face of Civil/Criminal cases (including Corporate Manslaughter/C-45 Bill proceedings).
