Join the Australasian Tunnelling Society and the Risk Engineering Society as they discuss the identification and management of risks during tunnel design and tunnel construction.

Gavin Halling will present some of the tools and processes available for risk management, namely the KISS approach and will showcase examples of their application in tunnelling projects.

The session will then look at the practical applications of these processes from the perspective of the tunnelling industry considering the main problems of risk analysis tools, with mathematical background and possible impacts in practice.

Professor Arnold Dix is a specialist advisor in responsibly managing complex technical matters. He is an Allen Neyland recipient and a world recognised advocate and active supporter of the tunnelling industry. He has dual qualifications in Law and Science, and provides investigative, decision support, dispute resolution, risk management and general advice on managing issues arising in technical, scientific, engineering, political and social risk contexts.

Professor Dix will present on “Cross Passages -Balancing the risks of death during construction with lowered death risk in operation – Risk, Micromorts and the Devil”.
