Training for Operational Excellence in Highly Hazardous Operations
October 16, 2013. Time and connection details TBA.
The Business Case
Today’s process industries face extraordinary challenges both economically and operationally. A top concern of executives and managers is mitigating and managing the risks of highly hazardous operations and improving and sustaining Operational Excellence.
Recent Research and Assessment Findings
Recent research clearly identifies that the formal structured training of operations employees is the keystone to mitigating and managing operational risk (related to human factors) and improving and sustaining Operational Excellence.
Recent assessment data indicates that most operations training is not systems based and fails to deliver the level of competency required for operations employees to:
· Perform normal daily work activities with a high level of efficiency and effectiveness.
· Respond to emergency events according to emergency procedures.
· Recognize and respond to abnormal situations in a timely manner.
The results of the above factors increase the risk of highly hazardous operations. This undermines the ability of an enterprise to improve and sustain Operational Excellence.
About This Presentation
This webinar presents a systems approach to operations employee training. The systems approach is based on a specific conduct of operations and level of operational discipline. This includes field and control center operations, and operations support from engineering and maintenance. Emphasis will be on field operators, process controllers and front line supervisors.
Presented will be an Operations Training Systems Model and training methods such as: accelerated learning and blended training protocols, including process simulation.
This webinar will provide participants with the ability to perform a front-end analysis of your current operations training. You will be able to determine if it’s adequate to mitigate and manage the risks of your operations, and if a more in depth operations training assessment is necessary.
