A foundation in risk analysis is a crucial skill set in today's business marketplace. When you can understand risk and apply strategies to manage it, you set yourself up for success in an ever-changing world.
In this course, you will explore key risk evaluation strategies and tools. You will begin by delving into the basics of risk analysis, studying hazards, risk management strategies, and vulnerability identification. You will then broaden your focus to visualizing and estimating risk, discussing models such as risk matrices that categorize risks by likelihood and consequence. Finally, you will analyze the causes and effects of adverse events, constructing event trees and performing fault tree analysis using practical tools like Python and R. By the end of this course, you will have a firm grasp of risk analysis and evaluation, including how to assess the likelihood and effects of adverse events.
