INTRODUCTION

Health, Safety and Environmental Management Systems are based on a proactive process for incidents prevention as well as reactive monitoring of performance. Risk assessment is required to be applied to all activities that impacts on Health & Safety, production, asset, environment and the Company reputation.

This EuroMaTech training course on Risk Assessment within Production Operations aims to provide hands-on experience in the application of advanced risk assessment techniques relevant to the process industry. It includes consideration of the consequences of major hazards, in terms of fire, explosion and toxic releases.

Participants on the Risk Assessment within Production Operations training course will learn how to:

  • Improve practical skills in applying advanced risk assessment techniques relevant to the process industry
  • Effectively balance risk against cost in order to optimize risk reduction measures
  • Motivate people for improved safety culture
  • Appreciate the role of Risk Assessment in the avoidance, control and mitigation of major hazards
WHO SHOULD ATTEND? 

The Risk Assessment within Production Operations training course is suitable for, but not limited to:  

  • Supervisors and line management who need to fulfil their role within HSE-MS
  • Production, project, process, mechanical, control, maintenance and HSE personnel
