Quality for Health Sectors




Health and Safety has to be managed with the same degree of expertise and to the same standards as other core business activities because of:

  • The high cost of failures
  • Legislation requiring employers to assess and manage risks
  • Public opinion on risk acceptability moving against poorly managed organizations, which impose excessive risks
  • High profile disasters, which fuel public opinion


The seminar is based upon “Successful Health and Safety Management” as produced by the Health and Safety Executive but not only, as various topics for High Hazard Plants will be looked into in more detail.


The seminar will give a practical guide to Safety Management Systems and the management loop associated with it including; Policy, Organization, Planning, Measuring Performance and Auditing and Reviewing Performance. The course will also look at the different Safety Management Systems and greater detail into Risk Control Systems (including an introduction to HAZOP studies).


In the United States and in Europe High Hazard Industries are strictly controlled by legislation. An understanding of OSHA’s Process Safety Management will enable participants to link these essential components with the overall necessity of a Safety Management System.
