The Risk Register is a key aspect of the Engineering and Construction Contract (ECC) and the use of it is instrumental in identifying and managing the risks associated with a project and the actions which need to be taken to avoid or reduce those risks.

This one day workshop enables delegates to fully understand all aspects of risk under the ECC and how to manage it through the Risk Register and other key procedures within the contract. 

Why enrol?

  • Understand how NEC3 contracts support effective project risk management
  • Be clear on the relationship between the Risk Register required by the ECC and a project Risk Register which may be used by the project team
  • Gain insight into how the Risk Register is adapted and changed through the lifetime of a project through the use of Early Warnings
  • Enrich your knowledge of how early warnings relate to Compensation Events, and how the Accepted Programme helps in their management
  • Confidently apply your risk management skills in practice
