Industrial disasters can occur through combination of small failures, culminating in a major incident. All too often the small failures and defects go unnoticed until disaster strikes. These routes to failure can be predicted and avoided.
Health, Safety and Environmental Management Systems are based on a proactive approach aimed at the prevention of incidents as well as reactive monitoring of performance (including failures). Advanced Process Risk Assessment is required for all activities that impact on health & safety, production, asset, environment and the company reputation.
In this Advanced Process Risk Assessment & Risk Management training course you will learn how to:
- Improve your practical skills in applying advanced risk assessment techniques relevant to the process industry
- Consider the balance of risk against cost
- Motivate your people for improved safety culture
- Appreciate the role of Risk Assessment and Control Measures in the avoidance and mitigation of major hazards
- Understand the principles of incident causation and incident investigation
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
- Management and those with responsibilities for analysing risks and incidents
- Production, project, process, mechanical, control, maintenance and HSE Personnel
- All personnel involved in implementing the Company’s HSE Management System
- Recognise the difference between hazard, risk and risk assessment
- Learn how to evaluate different types of risk
- Understand Control Measures and Mitigation Measures
- Develop the skills of applying advanced risk assessment techniques relevant to the process industry
- Develop a strategy for planning and implementing risk reduction action plans
- Appreciate the contribution of human error to accidents
- Be able to understand the root causes of major incidents
Delegates will learn by active participation through inspiring presentation tools and interactive programme and role-playing activities, presented in a lively, enthusiastic and interesting style. Delegates will take part in topic exercises, case studies during this inclusive training programme.
The purpose of this EuroMaTech training course is to provide delegates with the advanced skills and knowledge to successfully analyse new and existing risk control measures and conduct effective incident analysis. This EuroMaTech training course will show delegates how they can evaluate, determine and implement effective risk control measures to prevent serious incident occurring and / or re-occurring.
This EuroMaTech training course aims to provide hands-on experience in the application of advanced risk assessment techniques to the process industry. It includes analysis of the consequences of major hazards, in terms of fire, explosion and toxic releases. Aspects of human error in relation to accidents are analysed and included in methods for promoting a positive safety culture in your organisation.
Participants will be able to apply skills learnt from this training at a practical level to implement the Company’s HSE Management System. In addition to your professional development, your organisation should be able to implement, monitor and review HSE action plans.
