Hazard Management Foundations for ECITB Contractors
In conjunction with the Engineering Construction Industry Training Board (ECITB), employers can access funding towards this course
Hazard Management Foundations 2 DAY course will cover the identification, evaluation and prevention of accidents and incidents, as a direct result of failures in equipment, processes and procedures. All employees working in high hazard industries need to understand the safety, health and environmental hazards associated with their working environment.
This 2 day course will provide the fundamental knowledge and understanding of the principles of hazard management across the entire organisation.

‘The course syllabus matched almost exactly the level of hazard safety knowledge that we wanted our Hazard Safety Champions and Sponsors to have. In addition the course lends itself to training our next generation of process safety leadership. The Foundations course has been excellent. All attendees have been very positive and have said how much the course has increased their competence and allowed them to support the other sites in the improvement of safety performance’

The course is designed for managers, supervisors, designers, safety personnel, and senior contract employees working within engineering, construction and supply chain. It is suitable for young engineers and anyone who would like to develop a more detailed understanding of process safety management.
How is it delivered?
The training can be delivered on-site to groups of up to 15 delegates. For individuals or smaller groups we run open courses across the UK. All delegates are registered for an on-line self-assessment designed to reinforce their knowledge and understanding of process safety management and will be given exclusive access to a suite of video case studies designed to reinforce the learning for up to three years.
The course is delivered by highly experienced Cogent assured trainers. A combination of presentations, case studies and group discussions are used to illustrate interpretations of hazard management requirements and demonstrate ways to develop and monitor an effective hazard management programme.
On completing the course participants will understand:
> The benefits and key principles of hazard / process safety management
> How to identify hazards and assess the risks associated with hazardous substances and plant
> The need for effective measures to limit the consequences of a major accident and costly shutdowns
> The importance of identifying suitable safety critical equipment, implementing key risk control systems and the importance of sustaining their effectiveness
> How to apply learning from near misses
> How to monitor performance to achieve continual improvement in process safety performance
HSE is keen to support the development and delivery of training and coaching for board members and managers in high hazard organisations. It is essential that the momentum on improving competence in hazard management is maintained throughout the sector in order to ensure those involved in managing major hazard risks gain and maintain the knowledge and skills essential to avoid a major accident. We have come a long way since the disastrous events of Buncefield but it would be wrong to think that the task of improving competence has been completed
