Applied Occupational Health and Industrial Hygiene (OH & IH) - HS24
Discipline: Health, Safety, Environment
Duration: 5 days
Instructor(s): Mark Bowers, Christopher Dougherty, Phillip Duckett
This richly-blended course, led by an occupational health practitioner, builds practical experience for the oilfield, and adds new skills to allow participants to apply occupational health (OH) and industrial hygiene (IH) techniques in their workplaces. It includes short, punchy tutorials followed by many application exercises in our fictitious, but highly realistic Petros Barola case study. This has been used by thousands of energy-sector HSE specialists to develop their skills.
In this class, Petros Projects Ltd requires your assistance to develop OH and IH systems for a new major project. This includes the construction of a large solar array and a gas-fired power plant, and the closure and decommissioning of an old coal-fired plant. Works require 120 local and 480 non-native workers residing in temporary camps for three years.
For HSE specialists and others with responsibilities for specifying and implementing OH and IH programs. Some prior knowledge of health-related topics is desirable.
