A new partnership is aiming to boost safety in the offshore industry.

TyneMet College has teamed up with consultancy experts Hardy AVARR for a new course for businesses impacted by onshore and offshore environments.

We’ve worked hard to ensure the HAZOP training is relevant to both beginners and those with more of an advanced level of understanding.

The process safety course, ‘Essential for Effective HAZOP study Participants’, offers an insight into how to prepare for, be effective in, and follow-up HAZOP studies (a hazard and operability study).

Hardy AVARR managing director David Hardy said: “We’ve worked hard to ensure the HAZOP training is relevant to both beginners and those with more of an advanced level of understanding.

“The course offers a unique approach – as an interactive workshop focusing on scenario based learning and real experiences of the HAZOP environment that help delegates gain a deeper understanding of techniques.”

David added: “We chose to work with TyneMet because of their renowned experience in employer engagement; this course offers a brilliant insight into the principles of HAZOP and how to best apply them.”

McCourt Cordingley, systems development manager; Strategic Corrosion Management, who attended the course in March, said: “HAZOP is a specialised area and this course has given me a better understanding of applications that will equip me well when dealing with clients.”

“We are delighted to work with Hardy AVARR – as a well-established leading consultant in the onshore and offshore industry, their skills and expertise in the sector makes them a first choice for HAZOP training.

“We’ve worked closely with Hardy AVARR to provide a well-rounded delivery of concepts and techniques that truly benefit the onshore and offshore sector and we look forward to embarking upon the next project.”
