Petrotechnics develops OPITO-Certified Control of Work Course

Petrotechnics

Operational performance and predictive risk software provider Petrotechnics has been accredited for the delivery of a new OPITO certified Control of Work Training for Performing Authorities course in the oil and gas industry.

The course is designed to improve competencies and create common understanding across those responsible for work control and the ultimate aim of mitigating risk. As a result of Petrotechnics' experience in increasing operational efficiency and improving safety in the riskiest part of operations, the company was asked by Oil and Gas Industry ISSOW (Integrated Safe Systems of Work) User Group members to develop and run an OPITO approved course.

The one-day instructor led course is designed to give personnel responsible for the control of work at oil and gas installations and sites in the North Sea upstream oil and gas industry the generic skills, knowledge, understanding and behaviors required to carry out the role safely and effectively. Delivered in four modules, the training covers; an introduction to control of work, task risk assessment, controlling work activities, handover work suspension and completion and will conclude with a final assessment.

Petrotechnics has been an active member of the Oil and Gas Industry ISSOW User Group since it was formed in 2007. The group was originally established by STEP Change in Safety and is now operated by UKCS upstream oil and gas operators.
