Safety of systems, operational security - 2022

Systems safety


To initiate itself with the principles and the techniques of systems safety and risk management.


The training course lasts 5 days (30 hours) and comprises:

  • Lectures of 1 hours 30 to 3 hours
  • Many examples and exercises of application (25 % of the duration of the training course)
  • Several application sessions of directed work


This training course aims to expose the principles and some methods, used to analyze and manage the systems safety and to implement risk management.

Concrete examples are selected, inter alia, in the fields of space, aeronautical and nuclear industries, but it is not required for the listeners to have any particular knowledge in these domains. The different sessions are hosted by specialists in industry and administration representatives.

The training course must allow exchanges of views and experience.
