‘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.
