3rd Edition HSE and Operational Risk Masterclass 2023



6 - 8 MARCH 2023


How confident are you that a serious – even potentially catastrophic – incident isn’t just around the next corner? An event so damaging, that it may just undermine your ability to sustain future operations.

If your organization has ever been caught off guard by a sudden deterioration in operational performance, it is possible that you are not seeing the complete picture when it comes to Operational Risk and HSE Management. When organizations judge performance based on outputs and results, the rule of thumb is that if nothing terrible happened today, anticipate more of the same tomorrow. However, an imperfect system cannot provide flawless outcomes. So, when it comes to Operational Risk and HSE Management, alternative methods of work need to be employed that provide not only a more accurate picture of performance but can also help deliver a level of assurance around tomorrow’s fixed operational costs.

Despite the fact that many diverse organizations and sectors have achieved record low injury rates, significant occurrences with potentially catastrophic implications continue to occur. As a result, new research has begun to call into question the progress gained in how firms manage their primary operational risks and protect themselves from financial ruin. What has become evident, is that the established and familiar operational assumptions that good personal safety must always translate to good process safety are not just being challenged, but are seemingly becoming increasingly derailed precisely at a time when the margin for serious operational incidents in many industries has all but been cut to zero.

The HSE and Operational Risk Masterclass will help you transform the overall approach to HSE management and Operational Risk within your organization by utilizing cutting-edge strategies, tools, techniques, radically different metrics, and creative ways of working.


The masterclass brings you closer to brightest minds in the industry, and highlights the most innovative and impactful developments in the management of HSE and Operational Risk. Join us for this session to learn:

How to immediately recognize the fundamental differences between the management of Occupational Injuries and Major Operational Risk.

How to re-tool established ways of work to provide an effective “line of sight” between the management of key HSE / Operational Risks and the actions and behaviors of front-line workers.

How to translate new ideas and new ways of working into “hands-on” practical tools and techniques which upon completion of the workshop can easily be implemented within existing HSE Management Systems.

Peter V. Bridle is recognized as one of the most competent and forward thinking HSE and Operational Risk management professional from the international oil and gas industry. He has a well-deserved reputation for simply “telling it the way it is” and has been instrumental in helping some of the world’s most notable oil and gas companies deliver top tier HSE performance.

During his corporate career as Vice President HSE, Peter has worked with numerous organizations to gain nationwide and industry recognition for outstanding HSE performance. Besides having worked within both the Upstream and Downstream sectors via large international Operators, Contractors and Service Companies.

In 2013, after a hugely successful corporate career, Peter founded Pegasus Risk Management LLC, an independent consultancy that helps organizations and their leadership teams better manage their major operating risks and transforms their operating cultures while developing metrics and ways of work that provide predicable, sustainable performance. Peter has written many ground breaking papers related to HSE and Operational Risk management via the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) and through LinkedIn and as far back as 1996, Peter co authored a paper for Shell International highlighting the dangers of using traditional injury metrics for managing major operational risk and gaining barrier assurance.

Not surprisingly, Peter was one of the founding members of the Center for Offshore Safety (COS) – created by the US Federal Government in the wake of the Macondo / Deep Water Horizon disaster in 2010.
