E-570 - HSE in Construction/Maintenance Works

  • Engineers and staff involved in the supervision of construction and maintenance of oil and gas field processing facilities
  • To provide a thorough understanding of risks related to products, equipment, and different operations, involved in the execution of construction/maintenance works
Learning Objectives
  • To gain a deeper insight into hazard analyses during the preparation of construction/maintenance works
  • To assess risks linked to various activities, and adopt best industry practices
  • To grasp typical HSE management rules for prevention and protection
  • To lead a team carrying out a safety audit of construction/maintenance works
Ways and means
  • Several applications and illustrations
  • Several case studies and teamwork sessions

Audits - Means of improving the HSE performance 1 day
  • Objectives of an Audit
  • Pre-audit preparations: Audit boundaries, Expectations, Audit checklists, Audit plans
  • Audit: findings versus expectations
  • Post Audit: feedback (Report, findings vs. targets, recommendations and action plan), Audit action plan follow-up
  • Participants will have the opportunity to practice the preparation, execution and follow-up of an audit related to construction activities
