With highly experienced and knowledgeable course leaders, ORS offers training in process safety and SIL, technical safety, barrier management, production performance, and safety management as well as development courses for a variety of risk, safety, and reliability topics.
All our courses are offered to groups of participants by appointment. This means that they are always customized to meet the specific needs and requirements of our clients´ organizations. Moreover, the courses are designed to comprise both theoretical understanding and practical experience, and can be offered face-to-face, online, or both.
How Does it Work?
ORS’s courses can be carried out in a Scandinavian language or English. In addition, we can deliver our courses as either on-site training, virtually using MS Teams, or as blended learning – whichever solution suits our clients best.
We always use our eLearning platform to deliver our courses. One of the primary benefits of an eLearning platform is that all information is structured and organized in a single place, making it easily accessible to all participants.

A Selection of Our Courses
HAZOP - Introduction course (1 day)
Participants of this course will gain an understanding of Hazard and Operability studies and how these fit in the wider process safety toolkit. The course also covers the strengths and limitations of HAZOP techniques, when they should be used, and the basics of the process itself.
LOPA - Introduction course (1 day)
The goal of this course is to help participant to understand the principles of a Layer of Protection Analysis (LOPA) study, which is used to analyze and assess risk on process plants. Participants will be taught how to identify significant scenarios, how to define an independent Protection Layer, how to estimate frequencies, and how to document and audit a LOPA study.
Bowtie and Barrier Management - Introduction course (1 day)
In this course, participants will learn about how to conduct Bow Tie analyses and why this is a powerful tool in the context of Barrier Management. In addition, the course explains the concept of Barrier Management and how this enables companies to control hazards by gaining strength of knowledge for the barriers and reduce uncertainty in the barriers’ performance.
Process Safety - Introduction course (½ or 1 day)
During this course, participants will be introduced to Process Safety – the systematic framework for managing the integrity of hazardous processes – and gain an understanding of both the principles of Process Safety and how they, as site operators and technicians on high-hazard sites, can impact them.
Process Safety Management – Introduction course (1 day)
This course will introduce participants to Process Safety Management (PSM) structural design and explain how this can be used to ensure both that hazards are identified and that mitigation measures are in place to prevent the accidental release of energy or hazardous materials. In addition to discussing how to develop an effective PSM program, the course provides an overview of all key components of PSM and the possible links between them with the aim to teach participants how to integrate them with current company policies.
ATEX Directives – Introduction course (½ or 1 day)
This ATEX training is designed to make participants aware of the basic principles of explosions, how an explosion environment is created, and what safety measures are necessary. The emphasis is specifically placed on gas-, fog- and dust explosions.
PTW and Safe Isolation (1 day)
Participants in this course will learn about Permits To Work (PTWs) and which high-risk activities might need them. Specifically, the course examines the permits’ contents, who is responsible for preparing them, and what responsibilities everyone who is expected to carry out work covered by a permit has.
The course is also designed to make sure the participants understand why lockout/tag-out procedures are required, in line with the detailed process stipulated in The Safe Isolation of Plant and Equipment (HSE UK).
PTW in hazardous areas (EX) (2 days)
This course is intended for employees responsible for issuing Permits To Work (PTWs) for temporary work in hazardous areas. Participants will learn about management tools and methods - such as risk assessment of hazards, ignition sources, and consequences - as well as how to take appropriate measures to minimize accidents.
In addition to the courses listed above, we also offer a number of other courses (e.g., SIL, FMEA, ATEX Directives, Manager of Flammable Goods, and Incident Investigation). If you are interested in learning more about our courses, please fill in the form below and we will contact you.
