Course Overview

The oil and gas industry recognises that a major objective is to prevent incidents occurring and, if they do occur, to control them and minimise their effect. It is important, therefore, to set common standards and to ensure that personnel are continuously trained, assessed and re-assessed against these summaries of best practice.

Before employees can be assessed against standards they will require the knowledge and skills to enable them to carry out the tasks involved. This may require basic training, practice, relevant experience or regular drills and exercises to be undertaken before an official assessment can be held.
