The training is comprised of tutor-led presentations, role play, analysis, discussion and feedback.

In-house courses can be delivered for up to 12 people.


Although Hazard Awareness is very important analysis suggests that hand injuries don’t occur because the victim ‘didn’t know it would hurt’. It was not the absence of this knowledge that caused the accident to happen!

Studying the mechanism of accidents, has led to the development of a model where the various elements which come together in order for them to happen, can be identified and therefore avoided. Managers can be trained to identify and predict error inducing factors and situations within their teams, and to take steps to prevent them happening.

With awareness of Performance Influencing Factors team performance, effectiveness and efficiency can be greatly improved.


This course is applicable to anyone who is expected to be involved in Supervision/Management, HSEQ support, task planning, team performance and risk management.
