  Importance of This Course and Statement of Its Objectives

Most of us are aware of the historical Catastrophic Accidents in the Petroleum – Oil and Gas Industry, resulting in sorrowing Human Casualties and enormous Collateral Damage, some amounting to Billions of Dollars. Not only are these events frightening and psychologically scarring, but they remain a fact of modern life, wherein it is needless to claim that we learn from our experiences if we reiterate situations that are likely to engender these tragic occurrences. This Postgraduate Double Credit Course is designed to ensure that employers, consultants, advisors and workers within this Hydrocarbon Industry are aware of the factors that are likely to impinge on the Health and safety of all concerned and how they might be avoided, thereby reducing the likelihood of their occurrence.

The consequences of ineffective risk management having been established, participants of this course will leave with an enhanced expertise in creating and encouraging the maintenance of a healthy and safe working environment, within the sector of the industry with which they are associated. With an understanding of the stark differences, but often interrelationship, between health and safety, Delegates will develop a heightened awareness of the measures that need to be enshrined from both the engineering and practice enforcement perspectives, to effect the best of both worlds.    To this end, the participants will be able to dramatically improve the health and safety of workers, resulting in greatly reduced absences and associated compensation, increased operating time, enhanced productivity and overall organisational effectiveness.
