European Master and Certification Program
in Risk Engineering and Management

Improve your human factor risk reliability!

In the framework of the EU FP7 project iNTeg-Risk "Early Recognition, Monitoring and Integrated Management of Emerging, New Technology related Risks", Steinbeis University (STI Advanced Risk Technologies) and other project partners have set up a modern and modular European Master and Certification Program with the emphasis on management and analysis of emerging risks related to new technologies. Herewith, we announce the forthcoming course

Industrial Risk Psychology

May 13 - 17, 2013
Stuttgart, Germany

Lecturer: George Claudiu Apostol

The course is open for students of the universities and employees of the companies participating in the project, as well as for the external participants.

Industrial Risk Psychology is the scientific study of employees, workplaces, and organizational risks. Industrial Risk Psychology (IRP) contributes to an organization's success by improving the performance and well-being of its people and technological process. An IRP psychologist researches and identifies how risks can improve behaviors and attitudes by using risks through hiring practices, training programs, and feedback systems. IRP psychologists also help organizations' transition among periods of change and development.

The course aims to develop knowledge about industrial risks from a positive angle. The students will learn how hazards can be considered as opportunities. New visions of risks extend the competence to assess and manage risks at human and enterprise level.

The participants of this course should develop the competence to assess and manage risks at the enterprise level. The main topics followed are:

  • Needs analysis (needs give birth to risks)
  • Job context Analysis (each of us act in a context)
  • Risk as a concept:
                      a)Risks - as part of life (personal/professional)
                      b)Risks - as positive
  • Importance of communication at all levels
  • Promoting the idea of self management risks
  • Planning intervention focused on individual/context.

The course is dedicated especially for students from universities or professionals with Engineering, Psychology or Economics profile but it will also satisfy those students and professionals who are simply interested in new approaches when risk management is a matter. 

At the end of the course students are expected to:

  • have extended knowledge about industrial risks approach
