Petrofac installs e-learning "control of work" training program

Friday, October 5, 2012

Oil and gas engineering contractor Petrofac has installed an e-learning "control of work" training program, aiming to improve works site control and enhance behaviours for its offshore workforce.

The program was developed by Mintra Training Portal Limited, a provider of learning, training and competency services for the oil and gas industry.

The training program aims to fill knowledge gaps and improve worksite communication, with a consistent and common approach to competency of workers in Petrofac's Offshore Projects and Operations business.

The initial course will be delivered over the next 3 months, and the first program has already been delivered to Petrofac Offshore Projects and Operations staff at the end of September.

The course includes 3D animations, case studies and offshore videos, tailored to different job roles. It incorporates lessons learned from past accidents to improve understanding and promote risk awareness.

Results will be fully tracked with online mentoring available to all Petrofac employees and external contractors.

Mintra will make the course available to the wider industry later in 2012.

'Petrofac has recognised that there is a clear case to be made for improving the competency of key personnel who perform important roles within Control of Work," says Peter Conner, managing director at Mintra Training Portal Ltd.

"As an organisation, [Petrofac] wish to move beyond basic compliance."
