Day 1 – The Human, Cultural and Organizational Causes of Major Industrial Accidents – Case Study - The BP Macondo Blowout and Day 2 – Creating a Mindful Organization - A Culture Of Safety: Acting On Warning Signs



Very impressed with looking at safety from the process side, instead of the personal safety. Very captivating delivery of HSE.

This intensive 2-day course analyses human and organisational causes as significant factors when companies fail to recognise the warning signs (leading and Lagging Indicators) prior to workplace accidents. The programme utlises the work of Professor Andrew Hopkins and others to bring a very vivid view of the Management of Health Safety and Environment.

This international workshop is designed for strategic decision makers, including Safety Managers, management from middle to senior level, Plant Managers and Risk Managers, to give them the tools to significantly improve management of Occupational Health and Safety Risk Systems. [OSHE Consultants provides critical insights and lessons on the cultural and organizational causes of major industrial accidents. This program conveys simple yet powerful messages that help people understand the complexities and interconnecting components of HSE management systems.

Participants review why was there no focus on major hazard risk on these incidents? What is the distinction between process safety and personal safety? They learn to use the right metrics to measure your safety performance.

The two days program enables participants to understand how organisational structure may contribute to poor engineering decision making, become aware of the necessity of major hazard risk indicators reviewing Leading and Lagging Indicators in industry. Awareness that preoccupation with profit before safety comes at a cost to every organization. Understand how to learn from other accidents, defence in depth and dynamic risk assessments to improve safety.
On completion of day one (1) the key elements of a mindful organization and how it can be applied to becoming mindful will be discussed. Participants will be given the opportunity to identify improvement areas for their own organization and to develop an action plan for implementation in their own organisation.

While there is some focus on the BP Macondo Incident, the program only seeks to identify failings in management of HSE and is not geared to only personnel in the energy industry.
