R2A Practice Update: June 2018
Welcome to our latest newsletter. You may notice a design and format change that we hope makes this easier to read, especially on mobile devices. A refresh of our website is coming soon too.

We mentioned in our introduction in February that boards and senior management were struggling with liability management around risk issues, especially OHS obligations and that this is partly due to the confusion between SFAIRP and ALARP. 

Not surprisingly, the question of SFAIRP and ALARP came up in a recent REBoK webinar where Richard was a panellist. Richard details the webinar below, along with links to SFAIRP vs ALARP and due diligence articles weve written over the years. 

Other articles include Tim's Fire Australia 2018 conference wrap up on Taking Technical Standards at Face Value, and on AS2885, Pipeline Safety and Recognised Good Practice. 

We also have new Due Diligence Workshop dates with EEA for Melbourne and Brisbane, along with limited places still available for Perth later this month.

Enjoy the read and if any of our content peaks an interest for how R2A can assist with your upcoming project’s due diligence, or your organisation’s as a whole, we’d love to hear from you on 1300 772 333 or email us risk@r2a.com.au.

Taking Technical Standards at Face Value

In this detailed article, Tim discusses Standards, Recognised Good Practise, their purpose and how it all relates to due diligence - or, maybe, not!
