An intensive professional development training course on

Safety Measures & Metrics

The Course

The management of any operation (plant or project) requires the necessary Safety Measures to ensure success. Having put in place the Measures it then is imperative to evaluate the results using the appropriate Metrics. Safety Measures put in place the barriers required to prevent incidents whilst the metrics give foresight on the effectiveness of those measures.

Different projects and plants may be controlled through different legislative measures. Some require or recommend different metrics and measures whilst other areas are controlled through acceptable good practice guidelines.

This program will look at the general legislation for safety and also into the particular areas of high hazard plants and construction projects. All safety regulations put in place the measures that give foresight (with risk assessments) into the prevention of accidents. Management must see that appropriate metrics are used for the particular project or plant to evaluate the degree of conformity with the regulations and give adequate warnings of things that may go wrong.

  • Recognize key safety Legislation, with particular reference to: High Hazard Plants and Construction projects
  • Evaluate Safety Plans and Safety Reports
