Description The rapid advances of sharing information and communication technology in recent years has seen knowledge management become a key tool for the success of an organization. Many international organizations have developed various programs and activities on chemical risk management and mitigation practices to prevent chemical accidents and potential misuse of chemicals which plays a pivotal role as key to their future expansion strategies. The OPCW has identified knowledge and information sharing as one of their primary management tools to overcome current threats posed by non-State actors on chemical facilities. The result is the rapid expansion of information sharing and knowledge dissemination activities among Member States specifically targeting government and private sector officials who track and oversee the legitimate uses of chemicals of interest. Despite the increasing popularity amongst the scientific and non-scientific community, sharing information and knowledge dissemination related to risk assessment and management strategies, during workshops and seminars remain a complex and challenging task. It creates specific challenges as States Parties have adopted different risk management strategies to cater to their individual needs in diverse cultural settings. It has been evident that valuable resources have either been underutilized or duplicated, in the pursuit of developing better safety and security assessment tools. Therefore, adhering to a common integrated safety and security risk management plan would enable a common solution to overcome national boundaries across diverse cultural settings. This seminar attempted to explicate the importance of a common safety and security risk assessment tool, which is accepted by Member States. This seminar attempted to explicate the importance of a common safety and security risk assessment tool, which is accepted by Member States. The outcome of this forum illustrated the need to provide systematic processes to understand the risk related to chemical industries. In a future forum, the objectives of the safety and security risk assessment programs would be accomplished through sharing of case studies, table top exercises and group discussions. It could explicitly defines the roles and responsibilities of professional risk management teams, and identify results which could be leveraged for proper understanding of risk based safety and security assessment for Member States.
