This course teaches participants about a selection of advanced safety tools and facilitates practice use of these in a case study setting. During just five days, we learn about safety techniques for the oil, gas, and petrochemical industries including the HSE case, Bowtie, JHA/JSA, HAZOP, fault, and event tree analysis. We use a rich blend of exercises, problem-solving, videos, and case studies to support the learning in realistic situations. These come together to challenge participants in our case study scenario Petros Barola.

The class concludes with participants defending the company before the HSE regulator explaining why the company should retain its operating license following a serious incident. The course content is built around the PetroSkills competence maps at the Fundamental Application level. It may be taken either independently or in conjunction with other Foundation level courses - Applied HSE Management, Applied Occupational Health and Industrial Hygiene (OH&IH), and/or Applied Environmental Management.
