PDF Icon Small Model Code for the Management of Risk Issues (PDF, 163kB)
In May 2007 the Institution of Chemical Engineers published its 'Roadmap for 21st Century Chemical Engineering' outlining the beneficial contributions that chemical engineers could make to society over the years ahead. The section of the roadmap that dealt with the topic 'Health, Safety, Environment and Public Perception of Risk' proposed the production of a model code for risk management. This work was taken forward under the leadership of Martin Goose, a member of the SLP SIG committee.

The resulting document presents a 'model' of how major hazard risks in the process industries should be managed in the context of the UK regulatory system. Many of the principles of this model can be applied internationally, and in other topic areas where risk management is required. Some important topics which have relevance beyond risk management, and are required in order to achieve high standards of organisational performance generally, have been omitted. These topics include 'leadership' and 'the measurement and management of competence'.
