About the course
Recognition and effective management of HSE risks/impacts is a fundamental requirement of companies operating in our sector. This course provides participants with the underpinning knowledge on how to specify and implement an effective HSE management system at the technical level. The course is based upon a common HSE management system which explains the elements and their interaction. A variety of exercises and case studies based on our Petros Barola on and off-shore case studies, as well as readings and videos will be used to develop understanding and practice the skills.

The course is designed for the oil, gas and petrochemical industries around the PetroSkills competence maps for HSE Management at the Awareness level. This class can be taken alone, or together with our Basics of Safety (HS10). It provides the underpinning knowledge for participants seeking a career first-step qualification - the NEBOSH International General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety (IGC). For holders of the NGC gained within the last five years, this class provides for conversion to the IGC (upon request).
