This course presents the best practices from High Reliability Organizations (HROs) with respect to both excellence and safety. HRO is a term that refers to industries such as oil and gas, process, nuclear and aviation, where they possess a high degree of reliability despite their hazardous environment. It shows how organizations can learn from failures and near misses, as well as from other industries. Operational excellence will cover aspects of safety, risk, reliability, and quality management. This will include best practice at both strategic and operational levels, as well as in specific areas that relate to management skills, reliability and decision analysis, benchmarking, and information systems.

This course will feature:

Understanding of safety, risk and continuity of operations
Development of people management skills
Mastering techniques that can enhance plant reliability
How to conduct benchmarking and quality systems auditing
Applying decision analysis approaches

What are the Goals?

By the end of this course, participants will be able to:

Explain the benefits of acquiring best practices from HROs
Show how activities play a part in helping their organization perform at a higher level
Determine methods for generating and implementing effective performance metrics
Use a process improvement methodology back at work
Analyze critically the methodologies employed in the organization & implement improvements
