Course Content

Safety is of undeniable importance, but do we act accordingly? This course offers a refreshing insight in various safety aspects, ranging from theories and methodologies to practical measures and implications on your daily processes. Participants will be trained in executing the pertinent actions correctly while creating awareness about the importance of human behaviour on safety at the same time.

General safety aspects and theories will be explained in the lectures. Methodologies, such as Bow Tie, HAZID and FMEA, will be accompanied by hands-on cases where familiar situations and objects will be used to train the methodologies effectively. During these practical cases, participants will experience the effect of human behaviour on safety in various situations and in addition, they will learn how to deal with their own personal expected behaviour towards safety.

This course will not remove any paper-based actions, but will train participants in performing safety procedures and processes correctly, allowing them to greatly improve the safety of their work.

This course and its material are written and given entirely in English, however if all participants are Dutch, it is possible to give the lectures in Dutch. 


Target Audience

Introduction offshore safety is aimed at professionals working in the offshore industry, who deal with the practical and procedural aspects of safety on a daily basis, whether they are working onshore or offshore. Although focused on the offshore industry the content of this course is broadly applicable regarding safety at work in general.

  • Comprehending the basic principles of safety (Bow Tie, HAZID and FMEA)
  • Implementing practical safety measures and procedures
  • Gaining insight and awareness into the effect of human behaviour on safety
  • Developing a pro-active stance regarding safety
  • Becoming conscious of one’s personal safety behavioural profile



In the morning, the basics of safety as well as the philosophy behind safety will be explained. Two important safety theories, the Bow Tie Theory and the Hazard Identification Theory, will be elaborated upon in theory as well as in a practical cases. In the afternoon, we will discuss Failure Mode and Effects Analysis Theory, after which we continue with a more behavioural approach to safety. The day will end with an exam.
