Hildreth's certification expertise in ISO 14971 and related safety and risk analysis disciplines includes complete safety analysis from system-level Preliminary Hazard List, Preliminary Hazard Analysis and Fault Tree Analysis (FTA) to software FTA/Failure Modes, Effects and Criticality Analysis (FMECA).
His topics are understanding random events, failure as the triumph of stress over strength, reliability and safety, failure modes and effects analysis, fault tree analysis, reliability block diagrams, Markov modeling, diagnostics, common cause, software reliability, modeling detail, constructing reliability and safety models, system architectures, safety instrumented systems, and lifecycle costing.
Some aspects of risk control are quite technical, for example machinery guarding design, fault tree analysis, and control of explosive atmospheres.
Sessions will address how to use process-improvement strategies such as failure mode and effect analysis and fault tree analysis to ensure proper patient care, reduce errors, and conserve time and materials.
The role of the Safety and Risk Unit is not just confined to construction health and safety, but includes operational safety and risk management processes such as HAZOP, FME(C)A, Fault Tree Analysis and Reliability Engineering.
No reference is made to the adoption of other techniques of risk identification which are currently practiced--for example, hazard and operability studies and fault tree analysis.
