INTRODUCTION

The importance of effective health and safety training in the oil and gas industry is highlighted by extensively reported examples of major process safety incidents including the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil rig explosion in the Gulf of Mexico, the Buncefield oil storage depot explosion (2005), the 1988 Piper Alpha oil platform explosion (both occurring in the UK) and the BP Texas Refinery explosion in 2005.

This EuroMaTech training course covers oil & gas operations both, upstream and downstream, and is designed to provide a sound breadth of underpinning knowledge that enables personnel to manage oil and gas operational risks effectively.

Participants on the Oil & Gas Operational Safety training course will develop the following competencies:

  • Familiarity with health, safety and environmental management system
  • Hydrocarbon process hazards identification and control
  • Fire protection and emergency response
  • Logistics and transport operational safety
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

EuroMaTech’s Oil & Gas Operational Safety training course is suitable for:

  • All supervisors and line management who have assigned responsibilities within the organisation’s HSE management system
  • Production and process engineers
  • Maintenance personnel
  • Personnel interested in developing skills in this area
  • All personnel involved in planning and implementing the organisation’s HSE management system
PROGRAMME OBJECTIVES

Participants attending the Oil & Gas Operational Safety training course should be able to:

  • Explain the purpose of and procedures for investigating incidents and how the lessons learnt can be used to improve health and safety in the oil and gas industries
  • Explain the hazards inherent in oil and gas arising from the extraction, storage, and processing of raw materials and products
  • Outline the risk management techniques used in the oil and gas industries
  • Explain the purpose and content of an organisation’s documented evidence to provide a convincing and valid argument that a system is adequately safe in the oil and gas industries
TRAINING METHODOLOGY

Participants on EuroMaTech’s Oil & Gas Operational Safety training course will learn by active participation through the use of exercises, case studies and open discussion forums. Videos shown will encourage further discussions and delegates are encouraged to bring forth experiences and problems from their own organisations. The training course will be run using power point slide, copies of which will be distributed both in hard and soft copies.

PROGRAMME SUMMARY

This Oil & Gas Operational Safety training course covers essential skills in understanding oil and gas operations and equipment upstream and downstream. Through process risk management, participant will be able to apply risk assessment techniques for hazards identification and control. This will help organisations to demonstrate that all hydrocarbon risks are understood and are adequately controlled.
