I'm enrolled on a Masters in Risk assessment and crisis control starting in Feb and interested in finding out if anyone else has done it and what to expect.

Where are you doing this course? that may help people get back to you. I did a quick online search and could not find such a course - plent of Risk and Crisis management courses - but these were about coporate risk - not realy H&S which is why you may not be getting any feed back.

So as i suspected not confined to H&S risk but overall coporate risk - while some here will get involved most of us are very H&S biased.

Having said that I completetd my Pgc in Occupational Health and Safety Management with Portsmouth - (was an MSc course but self funded so stopped after 1 year) so i can say good choice - i found the tutors very helpful and quick to respond. I think i was in the first group to do it.

Have just realised it was nearly 20 years ago - that makes me feel old!

Back then it was still paper based im sure its all online now - hope it goes well.

thanks 1 user thanked Brian Hagyard for this useful post.

thanks, I'm looking forward to it and have started my recommended reading already to get ahead of the game.  My background is IT and NHS related software, networks and backup / resilience, so I'm looking forward to using these skills as well as my H&S training.  I'm looking down the line at becoming a business risk consultant, where the whole business is looked at and recommendations made.  All depts can affect each other, so if finance isnt running smoothly, accounts not looked after, then this can affect the purchasing power of new PPE or equipment.  If the IT side fails and data is lost, then this could leave the company open to the HSE if they request evidence that has been lost.
