About this Course

According to the Petroleum Safety Authority, Norway, Occupational Health, Safety and Environmental Management involves managing, controlling and handling all aspects of health, safety and the environment in various organizations and industry – with the focus on major accident risk.


A health, safety, and environmental (HSE) plan is a crucial step towards mitigating project risks, yet many companies don't use them on every project. They may require more time and planning up front, but the payoff can be huge.


A company-wide HSE policy is the primary method used to communicate management's commitment and expectations regarding management of health, safety and environmental aspects, issues and risks. It is used to communicate policy to the global workforce as well as key stakeholders and the general public.

In today’s business environment, companies are under growing pressure to comply with Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) laws and regulations. 

Increasingly, they are looking for an integrated approach to these issues to keep their compliance costs low, avoid potential litigation and even to protect their corporate image.


The HSE Level 1 course qualification focuses on impacting the knowledge and skills, as well as,  the principles and practices of industrial safety, environmental protection and occupational health. It lays the foundation, on which a robust HSE career will be later built.
