The final chapter in the Risk Engineering Society Construction Risk series for 2020, this webinar will explore the question 'What are the risks that engineers building smart liveable cities need to consider, in an era of rapid population growth, in planning for the construction stage of projects?'
Experienced presenters from SME construction/civil operations and from construction risk insurance loss investigation backgrounds will present and analyse some loss case studies and share the "Lessons Learned” with us.
Learning from losses is a tried and true process that has served engineers well for nearly two centuries in reducing losses in all industries. The difficult step in the building, construction and civil sector is to learn these lessons before they happen to each of us. All too often after a costly loss event we hear that "this has happened before” from those around us. The insurance industry has used "lessons learned" practices to both set industry standards and set premiums.
Construction Engineers are the most important asset for the delivery of the project, and it is essential that risks can be identified and reduced at the planning stage of construction with the input of all personnel. Utilising the expertise and skills of site managers and operators can optimise the success of delivering the project with reduced risk.
"It is most effective if we learn from our own experiences, but it is much more cost effective and career enhancing to learn from the experiences of others."
This is an opportunity to learn painlessly from the experiences of others.
