Process and Safety > Advanced Accident Investigation & Reporting Standards For The Oil & Gas Industry - VILT

About this Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT)

Accidents and incidents will occasionally occur regardless of all our best efforts. Work-related injuries, occupational illnesses, property damage, spills and fires are unplanned or undesired events that can adversely affect a company’s work operations. In order to prove a company-wide process of efficiency and effectiveness linked to the Safety Management System (SMS), all incidents should therefore be thoroughly investigated. The more critical the incident the more extensive the investigation.

Nevertheless, even a minor incident or near-miss incident also requires a thorough investigation as this may reveal significant potential for a serious future incident should the conditions be left uncorrected. There may be factors that contribute to an accident which are not always immediately apparent even though these incidents seem to happen for obvious reasons.  Attendance on this VILT will provide you with the essential skills, confidence and professionalism to facilitate a thorough Accident Investigation as soon as practicable after the event.

After the completion of this VILT course, participants will be able to:

  • Conduct a thorough Accident Investigation as soon as practicable after the event
  • Strategies for reducing Human Error
