Who should attend

This course is intended for project technical personnel and all personnel involved in implementing the company’s HSE management system.

About the course

Modern concepts of Loss Prevention and Loss Control are based on risk management. Apart from injuries to personnel and others, uninsured losses from major accidents can be extremely high. Piper Alpha accident for example costs is more than $8bn and 167 fatalities. In this programmed you will learn how to:

  • Improve your practical skills in applying proactive and reactive concepts of loss prevention
  • Gain familiarity with projects HSE plans and reviews
  • Appreciate the role of accident investigation and root-cause analysis
  • Appreciate the role of Quantified Risk Assessment and major hazards

This programmed is aimed at providing hands-on experience on the application of loss prevention principles relevant to a wide variety of industries. This programmed will enable attendees to identify hazards, particularly those resulting from human error, evaluating risks and targeting resources to prevent accidents through effective risk management. The programmed will also provide familiarity with the concept of Safety Case for major hazards, accidents analysis and modern risk management techniques for planning and implementing action plans.

Course Objectives

Upon successful completion of this course, the delegates will be able to:

  • Appreciate the consequences of major accidents in terms of fire, explosion, toxic releases and their costs
  • Understand risk assessment techniques and hands-on experience in applying this technique to their own sphere of activities
  • Analyze some principal stages in the accident chain and hazard models. This concept will be used to systematically analyze the root causes for selected accidents/incidents, which have occurred
  • Provide programmed members with the experience in the application of quantified risk assessment ‘QRA’
  • Ensure consistent optimization of resource allocation for production, maintenance and safety, based on risk and cost-benefit analysis
  • Emphasis throughout the programmed will be placed on the practical application of advanced risk management techniques to new projects and current activities
