HOW CAN TRAINING HELP IN CSMS?

The Business environment is becoming more dynamic with each passing day. In order to establish sustainability in an organization, consistent actions pertaining to Occupational Health and safety need to be implemented.


The safety culture flows from top to bottom. It is predicted that organizations, where the top and middle management are not very serious about the health and safety of employees and contractors, are likely to remain behind in the growth curve. Besides, with changing technological scenarios and environmental threats, the focus of the management should be on providing a worker-friendly workplace. 


Often organizations fail to carve the growth path for professionals working on enhancing safety. Training is a medium that ensures the growth of individuals pursuing safety in an organization.


After all, no general can win a war on his own, the soldiers are indispensable to the battle. Training helps the personnel renew their knowledge and adopt best practices in Safety.


With the enhancement in safety, the production output, as well as the reputation of an organization, is enhanced. On the other hand, a fatal accident only leads to social, legal, and financial troubles.


One of the ways we can enhance safety is by providing adequate training to personnel and contractors. 


Training is a part of all activities related to the industry. When you invest in training, you invest in the future of the organization. Our training activities on topics related to CSMS and general safety are helpful in building a safety culture in the organization. 


Our experts can help the workers and safety personnel as well by enhancing their knowledge of Safety and performing better in the workplace. A few topics amongst the most popular training courses we offer are listed below:

Establishing Safety Policies, Procedures, and its Objectives & Action Plan

Safety Culture

In the present scenario, one of the primary objectives of employers is to ensure a safe workplace for employees. Do you want to take pride in the fact that your employees feel safe and comfortable at work and return home to their families safe and sound? To ensure this, the employers must take a proactive approach in implementing a systematic safety plan.


The safety policies, Standard Operating Procedures, and practices in accordance may sometimes even have to surpass the requirements set by statutory authorities depending on the environment and risks involved. For example, the safety guidelines in a chemical or a hydrocarbon plant will be very different from an engineering workshop.


This training aims to enhance skills to decide and implement customized policy and safety procedures, and the objectives and action plans related to the guidelines are clear to the people implementing the safety plan in the organization.

Philosophy of Job Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment.

People Safety

Prevention of accidents and health hazards at the workplace is no less to win a War.

There is a golden rule in war: Identify the enemy and develop a deep understanding of the enemy's strength before getting into a conflict. Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment is the most effective tool that organizations use to identify the hazards and threats related to health and safety at the workplace. Once the threats are identified, a systematic risk assessment may be carried out to find how impactful the threat may be. It helps to ensure the safety of life, limb, and machines as per safety policies and procedures laid out by the organization.


Our dedicated training program on HIRA helps organizations and safety officers develop Hazard Identification and Risk assessment skills in line with globally accepted practices in similar industries.

How to Prepare SOP, SWP, & Method Statement

People Safety

Preparation of Standard Operating Procedure and Safe Working Procedures requires complete knowledge of regulations and operational processes. There are methodical ways of creating the SOP and SWP in which the internal regulator does not compromise on Safety and takes care of the smooth running of production or process as per desired output. It is no less than walking on a tightrope!


On the other hand, the Method statement generally focuses on processes or works termed as high-risk during risk-assessment activity and it may also outline the steps to manage dangerous situations during work procedures.


Join this training program to develop a perfect SOP/SWP commensurate to your Industry and your processes keeping in mind statutory regulations.

Training on Positive Isolation (LOTO System)

People Safety

 Lock-Out cum Tag-Out systems and positive isolation of machinery, vessels, or systems and their power sources are critical in ensuring a safe environment for repairs and maintenance. Identification of the correct isolation method is equally critical while designing a Safe Working procedure. For example, if you repair an inflammable gas pipeline, a single valve cannot ensure positive isolation. In such cases, blind isolation or double block and bleed isolation are required to ensure personal safety. The same is valid with selecting a Lock-Out system over Tag-Out systems while working on High Voltage lines.


The person responsible for designing such isolation systems must have expert guidance and training. Our expert trainers teach you to create the correct isolation system to keep your men and machines safe.

Safe Procedures in Confined Space

People Safety

 Confined spaces throw up completely different challenges than regular maintenance or operation activities. Whether it is a confined vessel entry, mining operation, or an extensive underground tunnel operation, the safety teams have a different role in ensuring untoward incidents are avoided completely. The safety personnel must identify potential hazards and address them in the SOP.


 The safety personnel must ensure that potential hazards like lack of oxygen, presence of toxic gasses, dust, lack of illumination, rotating equipment, and electric machinery are taken care of as a part of SOP. In addition, ventilation and isolation must be ensured before work. Further, one should ensure proper use of PPEs, knowledge of emergency procedures and first aid procedures. Moreover, during tense situations, things often go south. For such instances, rescuers must be identified and trained. In short, safe working in a confined space is no less than countering a deadly challenge.


 Our team has extensive mining, manufacturing, and chemical plant expertise to walk you through these strict procedures error-free. After all, there is no margin of error while working in confined spaces.

Behavior-Based Safety

Safety Culture

As an employer or senior management, do you find implementing a "safety culture" in your organization challenging? Do you wish to make all your employees till the last person in the hierarchy exhibit safe behaviors? Do you seriously want to implement safety as a part of all actions within your organization? If the answer to any of the above questions is yes, you need to adopt the Behavior-Based Safety module (BBS).


BBS may be understood as an organizational behavior management tool that focuses on the actions of all people in an organization, analysis of their actions, and implementation of a research-based intervention strategy to improve their actions/behaviors. It involves all employees, right from senior management to daily wagers. Broad steps involving BBS are:

  • Observation of Behavior

  • Analysis of Behavioral data

  • Determination of how to mitigate risks due to unsafe behaviors

  • Change of Behavior, evaluate the differences, and promote new behavior

  • Determining whether the change is effective.


The BBS procedure is a re-iterative method that eventually eliminates all unsafe behaviors, and safety is embedded in the organizational culture. Our experts do the hand holding during the complete process till BBS is implemented.
