The course will use practical planning tools and expertly-facilitated exercises to help participants develop processes and plan to improve their safety culture.
What's Special About This Course?
This course is run by Steve Marchant, a highly experienced global process owner (GPO) of behavioural based and value driven safety who is also a regular key note speaker at Safety Conferences in the USA, Malaysia and the UK. You will have a chance to learn from a highly sought-after leader who is an expert in developing high performing safety culture for organizations.
Also, remember that this course is operated by Worley, a key and widely recognized player in the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) field.
The challenge in every work environment is to recognize that however good our safety performance is there are underlying pathogens that could result in a major accident and consequently cause harm to our people. This course provides a hands-on approach to initially assessing the risks inherent in your workplace activities, how competent leadership is an integral part of health and safety management and more importantly explores ways you can measure, analyse and plan for Health and safety culture improvements. Using the latest thinking in what delivers safety, attendees will produce highly personalized cultural improvement plans along with their own personal safety charters.

If you are a permit operator of a Major Accident Hazard installation you must have a Major Accident Prevention Policy.
However, can you meet all the requirements? Have you balanced the requirements with workforce capacity? Has the Safety Case been added to an already heavily loaded organisation?
Otherwise known as ‘Technical Safety’ we deal with the prevention of Major Accidents. Attention to slips, trips and falls (personnel safety) does not contribute to process safety. Overdoing slips, trips and falls prevention can detract from process safety.
- Understanding risk is the basis of all safety assessment
- Inherent Safety removes or reduces the risk and hence the need for mitigation
- HAZID, HAZAN, HAZOP, CHAZOP are all methods of risk assessment and the identification of mitigation’s
- The Bow Tie method illustrates the mitigations and differentiates between proactive and reactive risk management
- QRA (Quantitative Risk Assessment) measures the residual risk post mitigation and documents the contribution of each risk reduction activity
- Safety instrumented systems are commonly used methods of risk mitigation
- SIL (Safety Integrity Level) is used to quantify the risk reduction requirement and hence the reliability required of safety instrumented systems
- LOPA (Layers of Protection Analysis) is used to reduce risk that cannot be easily mitigated by a single layer of protection such as a safety instrumented system.
Despite our many efforts in the field of safety we still have incidents and major accidents. Data shows that most root causes for the last two decades relate to human decision making.
Human decision making is impaired by complexity, yet we continue to add complication in the form of new safety initiatives. The complicated becomes complex when relationships between variables are not understood or when many things are competing for a limited resource (in this case workforce capacity).
Process Safety Pyramid
Practice and theory are two very different things. Most technicians do not understand process safety because they have never been taught the principles. We build on the basics taught on the first day to introduce a practical model of the layers of protection a technician deals with every day.
We introduce practical metrics to keep track of the integrity of our layers of protection. TRIR etc tell you nothing about proactive prevention of incidents.
Performance Standards and Procedures
There are no international standards for procedures. It is vitally important that the activity dictated by performance standards and procedures addresses the availability of protective layers. They are not just another work instruction.
Safety by addition is doomed to fail if there are not adequate resources to maintain the addition. Safety cases will fail to fulfil their purpose if they are added to an organization without consideration of the impact on resources. Too many Safety Cases aim to introduce control rather than improve safety.
Good asset management practice will ensure the Safety Case delivers. A safety case does not stand alone and should not take the form of a manual that sits on a shelf to satisfy regulations. It should only reflect what is done on a day to day basis and provide an improvement process.
