Being in business can be dangerous when things go wrong and people get hurt – organisations can lose reputation and money. Organisations, as a minimum, must demonstrate compliance with health, safety and environmental ‘HSE’ legal requirements. Many organisations want to do more than this.
This EuroMaTech training course will help to develop the thinking of the delegates to consider the positive business aspects of understanding the issues and of dealing with health, safety and environmental issues proactively.
Participants on the Health, Safety & Environment in Engineering Projects training course will develop the following competencies:
- How to contribute to the safe running of the operation
- How to help to improve and develop a positive HSE culture
- An understanding of technical & maintenance supervisor’s responsibility
- A better understanding of how to work with, and get the best from, people
- How to apply risk assessment principles in the workplace

The Health, Safety & Environment in Engineering Projects training course aims to enable participants to achieve the following objectives:
- Appreciate the business importance of health, safety and environmental matters
- Contribute in syndicate exercises (including risk assessment, incident analysis, etc.)
- Enhance background of relevant HSE issues
- Contribute to HSE matters within the organisation

This EuroMaTech training course develops the delegates through the use of case studies, group discussion, reflection activities supported by video materials and exercises to help you apply what you learn to your work situation.
Using a series of case studies and syndicate exercises, the Health, Safety & Environment in Engineering Projects training course covers essential skills such as understanding the causes of HSE failure within an organization and learning how to avoid them. It includes analysis of the factors leading to major hazards (including fire, explosion, toxic releases, and also environmental releases). There is consideration of how human error can lead to incidents and also on how human endeavour can create a positive culture in your organisation, making it more resilient to failure.
