This training course develops the delegates using 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 and 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 environmental releases). There is consideration of how human error can lead to incidents and on how human endeavour can create a positive culture in your organisation, making it more resilient to failure.
