Training and Competence Assurance

When using compressed air for breathing or in safety critical manufacturing processes, an essential part of our holistic approach to the safety lifecycle process is to create an understanding of the many process stages and their individual risk factors to eliminate the opportunity for complacency.

Safewell's training courses benefit the entire organisation as any risks to asset integrity caused by the performance of the safety products and the affected work processes are direct risks to the health and safety of people operating in the business.

By participating you will learn how to mitigate risk through our continuous process of engagement, awareness generation and specific product training which also allows our clients to maintain a measurable level of operational improvement over time as the sharing of vital safety knowledge is encouraged throughout business growth, team changes and project developments.

A fully integrated example of this is the SafeWell Compressed Breathing Air Training course which we deliver to a number of major clients in the oil and gas, food & drink, petrochemical and refining, and third party training delivery sectors. This course has been delivered to over 500 end users working in fabric maintenance operations in the oil and gas sector worldwide including Trinidad, UKCS, Azerbaijan. It has also been delivered on behalf of operators such as the BP Fire Department at Sangachale terminal in Azerbaijan.

The course provides guidance on an entire holistic safety management system for users of compressed breathing air encompassing both classroom and workshop practical training. There is an emphasis on WHY? as well as HOW? to test the quality of compressed air used for breathing. The course includes: 

  • Legislation, HSE, COSHH L5 ACOP
  • Breathing Compressed Air quality standards such as BS EN12021:2014
  • Safety risks and their prevention
