It is a well-known fact that safety is important, but do we act accordingly? This course will not only hand participants the tools to assess safety from three main viewpoints, but will also train them in performing and executing the pertinent actions correctly. These behavioural aspects will be applied to an offshore occupation, but will also be reflected in daily life. To accomplish this learning goal, lectures on general safety aspects and different safety theories will be given and accompanied by hands-on cases. In these cases, familiar situations and objects will be used to effectively put the gained theoretical knowledge into practice.
The goal of the course is creating awareness of the importance of safety in offshore, learning to apply practical safety measures at and from different levels and viewpoints and most importantly, to make safety awareness a natural part of participants’ behaviour. Participants will achieve this by learning to use different safety theories and by understanding the influence of human behaviour.
This course will not remove any paper-based actions, but will train participants in performing them correctly, allowing them to greatly improve the safety of their work.
Introduction offshore safety is a one-day course aimed at the offshore industry, but with a broadly applicable content regarding safety at work.
In collaboration with IRO
- Comprehending the basic principles of safety
- Gaining insight into the effect of human behaviour on safety
- Understanding the need for safety, even in everyday life.
- Comprehending the role we have in the safety analysis process.
- Becoming acquainted with some well-known theories used to enhance safety on the job (such as JSA theory, HAZID theory and FMEA theory)
- Getting a lasting proactive stance regarding safety.
The basics of safety as well as the philosophy behind safety will be explained. Furthermore we will incorporate human behaviour in the safety discussion as well as ways to handle this topic. Three safety theories will be discussed: the Job Safety Analysis Theory, the Failure Mode and Effects Analysis Theory and the Hazard Identification Theory. These will be elaborated on in theory as well as in a practical case study.
