This course is aimed at providing hands-on experience on the application of risk assessment and risk management techniques relevant to the oil, gas and process industries. This course will enable participants identify hazards, evaluating risks and targeting resources to prevent accidents through effective risk management.

The course will also provide familiarity with quantified risk assessment and reviews fire, explosion and dispersion modelling following hydrocarbon and toxic releases.

Learning Objectives

  • Overview of risk assessment and risk management
  • Hazard and risk-concept, definitions and terminology
  • Developing and implementing Risk Management programmes
  • Explain the purpose of and procedures for investigating incidents
  • Outline the risk management techniques used in the oil and gas industries
  • Appreciate the role of human error in risk assessment and contribution to incidents
  • Appreciate the value of promoting positive safety culture within your organisation

Target Audience

This course is aimed at all personnel involved in loss control and accident prevention. This programme is based on multi-disciplinary approach, and is also beneficial to all personnel from senior management to supervisors.

Training Methodology

Participants will learn by active participation during the programme through the use of exercises, syndicate and group discussion, training videos and discussions on relevant types of accidents and ‘real life’ issues in their organisations.
