The three lines of defence is a concept from auditing financial and other management systems. Can it be applied to OHS? Chris will explain the concept and some of the research to help members know how to discuss it with managers and apply it in practice.

Please note, this webinar has been rescheduled from its original date of 31st August.

When he immigrated to New Zealand he moved into risk management and worked in various roles before joining the Natural Gas Corporation as Corporate Risk Manager and ultimately moving on to establish Risk Management Ltd, an evidence-based risk management consultancy.

More recently, Chris has been sharing his wealth of information through teaching. He has lectured at Massey University (Auckland) and is currently at Victoria University (Wellington), teaching papers on management and assessment of risk in the Master's programme.

Chris has an MSc in Risk Management and Safety Technology. For his PhD he wrote a research paper on "The effectiveness of risk assessments". He is a Certified Fellow of NZISM, a Chartered Fellow of IOSH, and firm believer that effective risk management drives organisational improvement and is an integral responsibility for all managers.
