Program Description

The goal of this program is to produce competent HSE personnel that possess the effective communication skills and working knowledge necessary to develop and maintain a safe worksite. This is an in-depth course that instructs not only on the regulations but how they apply to the job; how to use the tools of the trade (gas monitors) and why; and the important role permits play in communication across different worksites and work crews. Participants will acquire the skills needed to protect workers while on the job and ensure that their company meets occupational safety and health requirements. These skills are the abilities to effectively develop HSE plans; organize and conduct safety presentations and meetings; and carry out worksite audits and PPE assessments. Other topics include hazard management, scene preservation, pre-job checklists and the permitting process.
