The course outlines the steps that should be carried out by a Dam Owner in preparation for a Dam Safety Review, the activities undertaken by the Review Engineer during the process, and the need for follow-up by the Owner after the report has been delivered. The course is applicable to both mining dams and water-retention dams.
During the workshop, participants will use a fictional case study in group exercises to demonstrate:
a) The level of effort required to scope a Dam Safety Review
b) Type of information required to assess the safety of a dam
c) A framework for considering hazards and failure modes
d) The need for Dam Safety Review findings to support decision-making.
The course is led by Mr. Tony Bennett who is a Director of Dam and Public Safety for Ontario Power Generation(OPG). OPG is responsible for the Dam Safety Program covering dam safety, emergency management and public safety around dams, for a portfolio of 66 hydropower stations and 241 dams. Printed course material is provided for attendees to use during the workshop and keep for future reference, including tools and examples.
