RA101 – Introduction to Risk Assessment

Learn Machinery Risk Assessment anytime and anywhere. 

Introduction to Risk Assessment is our 12-week machinery risk assessment course, based on ISO 12100:2010 and ISO/TR 14121-2:2012 standards. Delivered online, this course features widely accepted methodology that can be used without modification in Canada, the EU, and the USA.

We ran this course in the fall of 2017 as a pilot project with a small group of students, whose patient, thoughtful feedback helped us create this revised and updated course – now available for open enrollment. 

Your Instructor

Doug Nix has been doing machinery risk assessments since 1996, in addition to teaching and consulting on risk assessment techniques and methods since 2000. He is the Chair for CSA Z1002 on OHS Risk Assessment and sits on several other Canadian and International standards committees related to machinery and workplace safety. Doug loves coffee, dogs, and canoeing, and has a strange aptitude for remembering key details about a plethora of standards…and arcane facts on various topics. Seriously. Don’t ever play trivia games with him! 

Course Pacing

Course materials and video lectures are released weekly and should take you 1-3 hours per week to complete. In addition to video lectures, live private coaching with Doug is included, because sometimes we all need a little extra help to figure things out.

Owning a copy of ISO 12100:2010 and ISO/TR 14121-2:2012 is recommended before you start the course, but you can get by without them.

  1. Can you please send me comments to the following questions regarding your online course:

    – After you buy it, does it have a set schedule, or can you do it at your own pace?
    – Is there a dateline when you have to finish all modules by?
    – Do you provide any course material?

    1. Hi Jose,

      The courses are set up with a drip-feed schedule, with a new chapter available each week. If you get behind it’s not a problem, as you can catch up as you have time available. There is no deadline for completion of the course.

      The courses have many downloadable documents. Additionally, you do not lose access to the course once you complete it, so you can always come back to review any topic in the course whenever you like. If the course is updated, you have access to the updated version.

      Some courses make use of commercially available textbooks, like the one used in the functional safety course.
