IOSH Construction and Operations Safety for Solar Power

Why attend this course?

Struggling to balance conflicting solar farm project costs, time and safety outcomes?

If you face this challenge, our IOSH Construction and Operations Safety for Solar Power virtual learning might just be what you need.

The global growth of utility-scale solar power is an indicator of the importance of solar in the renewable energy mix. Commercially viable and high-return projects are meticulously planned and developed, then effectively constructed, operated and maintained. Each phase is equally important and dependent on the stage before.

This programme equips Engineering, Construction and Asset Managers with a holistic view of the asset lifecycle and the impact of strategic, tactical and operational decision-making on safety and asset performance.

This is so much more than a standard IOSH awareness-level program. It takes a systems view of projects while navigating you through emergent properties such as time, cost, schedule and safety.

Is this an e-learning course? Well, no. Delivered by expert trainers, we harness the virtual environment like no one else does. Live presentations, group work, video assignments, and much more – we ensure you are engaged and learning through active problem-solving. No, not a traditional approach to safety.

But don’t just take our word for it.

Hundreds of leading renewable energy organisations worldwide trust the ARMSA approach.

Our approach

Traditional attitudes towards safety don’t apply at ARMSA. Our research shows that some of the most critical safety decisions are made at the front end of project development. This next-generation programme explains how these decisions impact your asset performance and occupational safety. The diagram below shows the proactive and reactive elements of management decision-making covered in the course.

Front-end decision-making components of the program include:

  • Organisational culture
  • Commercial and contract frameworks
  • Organisational precursors
  • Work planning decisions

Late-stage decision-making components of the program include:

  • Hazard identification
  • Incident management
  • Major accident investigation

5/5

Making informed decisions at the development stage improves performance.

The asset lifecycle approach to safety was appealing. I’ve seen operations go wrong so often, especially in solar, given how new this industry is. We tend to focus on hazard management when instead, the asset could have been designed differently to avoid the presence of certain hazards in the first place.

It helped me broaden my view.

It helped me broaden my view on safety, but one of the most valuable outcomes is that it helped me confirm my thinking and gave me the courage to stand for my opinions. The course puts you in that situation where you can discuss your challenges with other industry professionals and experts. Hearing them share their opinion and thoughts made me grow in my profession.

Having this level of education can help you advance.

The emphasis on management principles was vital. If your management is weak, your safety is weak and vice versa. I enjoyed the professionalism of the instructors and the breakdown of the materials. I also believe that if you want to leave your competitors in the dust, this is the kind of learning required, which will make you better. Having this level of education can help you advance.

Demonstrates how safety is an outcome of the choices we make.

The programme demonstrates how safety is an outcome of the choices we make. And it starts with business development as the choices they make establish the envelope within which the plant is going to be developed, built, constructed and operated.
