Health, Safety & Security Training Courses


Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety (OHC) Course

Introduction:

The importance of effective occupational health and safety (OHC) training in the oil and gas industry is highlighted by extensively reported examples of major process safety incidents, including the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil rig explosion in the Gulf of Mexico, the Buncefield oil storage depot explosion (2005), the 1988 Piper Alpha oil platform explosion (both occurring in the UK) and the BP Texas Refinery explosion in 2005.

All organizations invest considerable amounts in training and guiding their Team Leaders, Managers, Engineers, and Supervisors on new leaner and higher-efficiency production methods. However, incidents continue to occur, resulting in human harm and financial loss. This occupational health and safety (OHC) course aims to rectify the loss cycle by attaining superior occupational health and safety competencies.

This occupational health and safety (OHC) course provides a valuable understanding of occupational health and safety. It is a serious step towards developing competencies that will enable further progress in these fields. The increased competencies of the delegates will result in cost savings and increased efficiencies within the company. It covers Safety Management, Hazard Control, and Process Safety Management.
