The 3rd edition of the Code of Practice for Risk Management in Tunnel Works has just been published!
This code of Practice is the latest edition of a Code prepared jointly by The International Tunnelling and Underground Space Association (ITA-AITES) and the International
Association of Engineering Insurers (IMIA).
It aims at reducing the frequency and severity of serious incidents (resulting in insurance claims) to within sustainable boundaries.
This 3rd Edition follows an industry-wide survey that canvassed opinions on the application of the Code to date and any necessary updates.
The main areas of revision include adding a list of the principal attributes expected in the Code, addressing competence and culture, differentiating between risk management
and management of risk, a new section on digital modelling, improved language on both instrumentation and monitoring and emergency response plans, and clarification of the
importance of managing high consequence events.
