2 Fraud - Prevention and Corruption Tue, 11 April 2017 Tue, 11 April 2017 1050 TTD Per Seat

Course Fee $1,050.00

COURSE DESCRIPTION: The words “corruption” and “fraud” are always in the news, and are ever present when the collapse of organizations and businesses are discussed.

This course is intended to equip students with skills that can be utilized to reduce the impact of fraud and corruption and put value back into any organization.

At the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Define Fraud and Corruption
  • Quantify its impact on organizations
  • Understand fraud typologies
  • Know characteristics of fraudsters
  • Identify Red flags or fraud indicators 
  • Identify root causes of fraud and corruption
  • Detect fraud and corruption in an organization
  • Know the importance of deterrence and impact of controls
  • Know the benefits of developing an anti-fraud culture

4 Accident and Incident Investigation Thu, 19 May 2016 Thu, 19 May 2016 950 TTD Per Seat

Course Fee $950.00

COURSE DESCRIPTION: OSHA strongly encourages employers to investigate all incidents in which a worker was hurt, as well as close calls, in which a worker might have been hurt if the circumstances had been slightly different.

In the past, the term "accident" was often used when referring to an unplanned, unwanted event. To many, "accident" suggests an event that was random, and could not have been prevented. Since nearly all worksite fatalities, injuries, and illnesses are preventable, OSHA suggests using the term "incident" investigation.

Investigating a work site incident— a fatality, injury, illness, or close call— provides employers and workers the opportunity to identify hazards in their operations and shortcomings in their safety and health programs. Most importantly, it enables employers and workers to identify and implement the corrective actions necessary to prevent future incidents.

Key Training Areas include:

  • Principles of accident and incident investigation
  • Benefits of accident/incident prevention
  • Basic concepts of human factors
  • Accident /incident reporting and scope of investigation
  • Accident investigation techniques
  • Stages of accident investigation

ADDITIONAL INFO: Certificate of Participation Awarded. Training by experienced and qualified occupational health and safety professional.

5 Building Facility Security Designs- Diverse Needs, Right Solutions! Fri, 29 November 2013 Sat, 30 November 2013 1250 TTD Per Seat

Course Fee $1,250.00

COURSE DESCRIPTION: The ultimate aim of the concern for security in the design of a facility is to eliminate crimes that imperil lives and increase the cost of doing business. Such crimes can include burglary, industrial espionage, shoplifting, vandalism, assault, rape, murder and employees theft.

Utilization of the CPTED theory in facility security design utilizes knowledge of human behavior drawn from disciplines such as criminal law, sociology, psychology, administration of justice, criminology, penology and human behavior. It is also based on the proposition that the appropriate design and application of the building and surrounding environment can both reduce crime and the fear of crime.

CPTED alone would however not solve facility security design problems.As far as possible, facility security design should begin during the site selection process where a site analysis is conducted as the first level of security defense planning. This is followed by defense provided by perimeter or exterior of building and finally by internal space protection. Special attention would be paid to privacy vs. security, design criteria for parking facilities, industrial buildings, offices and office buildings and information and property asset protection. Special considerations concerning the security of U.S federal buildings would also be examined.
