Event:  Composites in the Offshore Oil and Gas Sector

Date: 17 September 2014

Location: Oil and Gas UK, Aberdeen

 

Fibre-reinforced polymer composites have found a wide range of applications in the oil and gas industry for the last three decades. They are now being used increasingly in offshore applications, as they lead to a host of benefits over traditional materials. This course has been designed to provide you with an overview of composite materials and their current uses in the oil and gas sector. The course focuses on a number of key applications including pipework, gratings and bonded composite repairs.

Event:  LOPA ( Layers of Protection Analysis) - Practical Application and Pitfalls

Date: 22 - 23 October 2014 

Location: TBA 

LOPA is a risk assessment method used to determine and demonstrate how safeguards protect against known hazard scenarios. The Process Safety Leadership Group (PSLG) prepared specific guidance for using LOPA to determine the safety integrity level (SIL) for overfill protection of Buncefield-like storage tanks. This course draws on that guidance, its relevance to other applications, and pitfalls identified during the assessment of a large number of LOPAs.

Event:  Human Reliability Assessment using Human Error Assessment and Reduction Technique (HEART)

Date: 22 - 23 October 2014 

Location: TBA 

 

Achieving high reliability is the ultimate aim of safety management. Quantifying equipment failure rates is a well-established part of this process, but this knowledge represents only a portion of the complete picture. In this course, one of the most accessible techniques, the Human Error Assessment and Reduction Technique (HEART), will be explained. It is used in a wide range of industries such as chemical, oil, gas, nuclear, transport, defence and medicine, and gives insight into potential sources of error.

Event:  Behaviour Change - Improving Health and safety Performance 

Date: 18 - 19 November 2014 

Location: TBA 

 

This course, delivered by HSL psychologists, will provide you with an understanding as to why workers take risks, covering the many factors that influence behaviour. It will also highlight the strengths and weaknesses of traditional behaviour modification strategies for correcting 'unsafe' behaviour, highlighting why such approaches may have limited impact.  The course builds on behaviour modification approaches, adopting a five step, holistic approach to behaviour change and concludes with strategies to help reduce the likelihood of risk taking behaviour.

Event:  Human Factors in accident and Incident Investigation 

Date: 18 - 19 November 2014 

Location: TBA 

 

As many as 90% of accidents involve human factors causes. This course is designed to give you an impartial and pragmatic understanding of some of the techniques available for investigating human factors issues. Effective investigation of the human factors within accidents and incidents is essential when wanting to improve performance, personal safety, management systems and loss control. You will be given the tools to find ways of having effective accident investigation within your organisation.
