This course set will teach participants the skills and knowledge needed to complete a hazard analysis, specify risk controls to bring risks to ALARP, identify relevant personnel, complete appropriate hazard analysis forms (paper or electronic), monitor and review effectiveness of risk controls. Additionally, it is for those who are required to issue work permits to persons who conduct activities where hazards exist, or specific procedures need to be followed and monitored to protect the safety of personnel and the integrity of plant or process.
Whether working as an individual alone or as part of a team/workgroup and working in liaison with other team members, a hazard analysis may be required under a safety case by organisation procedures or simply as being good practice. This might be done as an independent activity in order to identify hazards and the appropriate hazard controls, or it might be done as part of a broader process, such as identifying and applying for the permits required for a job.
Additionally, as an individual, a member of a team and/or the control room operator, this course set will teach participants the skills and knowledge to ensure an understanding of the permit system and the limitations of each permit, and in making decisions regarding the need for and correct use of each permit.
Participants will also learn the significance of the analysis context, how the identified hazards may cause harm and the purpose and use of the risk matrix.
