Each module has been carefully researched to include the best advice of the various industry bodies associated with the particular subject. The key safety messages are clearly and unambiguously stated, with examples of good and bad practice shown where appropriate.Each module is standalone and can be worked through at your own time and pace. At the end of each is a set of self-assessment questions that will allow you to judge your own understanding of the subject you have just been studying.

1. Incident Investigation
This module deals with Incident Investigation, concentrating on situations with the potential to cause injury or death.
During the course of this module you will learn how to properly undertake incident investigations by gaining as many of the facts as possible. At the beginning you will see a good demonstration of how not to behave in the period immediately after an incident and the impact this has on the subsequent investigation. This is followed by a section explaining the reasons for adopting good practice when reacting to and then investigating an incident. The final section of the module shows a model investigation being carried out.
This module does not deal with specialised shipping incidents/losses such as collision, grounding or spillage.
During the course of the modules you will meet 'Sheldon', a character generally guaranteed to demonstrate the wrong way to do most things and, occasionally, how to learn to do it right!

2. Permit to Work Systems
This module works through the principles behind the Permit to Work system, providing examples of different types of permits and working through some of the general rules to be observed.
The Permit to Work module will help you to understand the importance of:
      - proper definition of the work-scope and method
      - the identification of hazards and precautions necessary to mitigate them
      - the responsibilities of yourself and others under the Permit to Work scheme.
Permit to Work schemes can vary in their implementation so this module is, by necessity, a good general guide to the subject
This is one of a suite of modules known as SET, which were originally developed in conjunction with Shell, have been designed to provide awarseness and basic training on a number of topics that are the primary sources of Lost Time Incidents (LTIs), accidents and fatalities.

3. Confined Space Entry
There are many types of confined spaces. But no matter what the type under consideration is, all confined spaces have some things in common. They will all have limited ways to get in and out and the atmosphere within them is often dangerous.
A confined space can represent a risk for the health and safety of anyone who enters
The modules covers:
     - types of space - reasons for entering a space
     - hazards - gas testing and atmospheric checks
     - ventilation and gas freeing - entry checks
     - duties - communications equipment
     - rescue
At the end, after presentation of some case studies, you will be able to test your own knowledge and understanding of the subject.

4. Hydrogen Sulphide (H2S)This module looks at Hydrogen Sulphide (Hydrogen Sulfide) , or H2S, a highly toxic gas that can cause serious injury or fatality at relatively low concentrations.
The module has a number of key objectives
    - to provide you with enough information on the characteristics of H2S to enable well informed decisions to be made
    - to provide you with the information you need to assess risk during operational procedures
    - to provide you with the information you need to ensure the safety of you and your colleagues in the event of an incident involving H2S
In this module you will also find information on:
    - the medical effects of varying levels of concentration of H2S
    - exposure limits
    - action to be taken where accidental exposure has occurred
    - where H2S is found and the precautions to be taken in those circumstances
    - regulatory issues.

5. Manual Handling
Manual Handling injuries can have a significant impact on both you and your company. An injury can affect your lifestyle, your leisure activities, your ability to sleep and your job prospects. For the company, injuries can lead to wage costs, loss of reputation and civil liability costs.
The module is about the handling of loads by human physical effort. Any transport or support of a load by lifting, putting down, pushing, pulling, carrying or moving by hand or by bodily force will fall into this definition.
The Module is designed to help you assess risk and make good decisions on the sorts of precautions to take.

6. Lifting Equipment
This module deals with general operational and safety matters when using Lifting Equipment.
During a recent review of lifting incidents, carried out over a 5 year period) it was found that more than 59% of lifting incidents were attributed to human factors. The module will deal with some of the more common of these.
The lifting appliances module only deals with general aspects of 'routine' lifting operations. It should not been as specialist lifting or banksman training.

7. Fire Extinguishers
Recognising the different types of fire extinguisher (Water, Foam, CO2, Dry powder, chemical etc) and knowing when to use them.
The fire extinguisher module walks through
    - the different types of fire and their characteristics
    - the different types of extinguisher and the rules for their use
    - some common sense guidance on fire fighting
At the end of the module you will have the opportunity to test your ability to make the right decisions at the right time should the need to consider fighting a fire ever arise.

8. Scaffolding / Working at Heights
Rules on the use of scaffolding and other methods of protection when working at height.
A fall from working at height, defined as performing work where a potential fall distance of 2 metres (6 feet) or more exists, is one of the commonest types of industrial injury and generally, the injuries sustained will be serious.
This module walks through the decision process on whether it is scaffolding or some other method of protection, such as a harness, that should be used when working at height.
Good practice is described, bad practice is highlighted and the case studies demonstrate the outcome when due care is not taken.

9. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
The use and maintenance of essential personal protective equipment, such as gloves, boots and respirators.
 This module deals with the correct selection and proper wear of PPE.
PPE is not a substitute for safe working conditions or sound working practices and its use PPE does not eliminate the hazard. However, it is an aid in controlling your exposure and it helps to prevent injury or adverse health effects.
Eye and face.
Eye and face protection is protective equipment such as spectacles, goggles, face shields, or welding shields that are designed to protect the wearer against a variety of hazards. This module will guide you through the correct selection and fitting.
Head, hearing, respiratory.
This module will provide information on protection for your head and hearing and will also talk about basic air purifying respirators. This module will not deal with the specialised equipment needed for exposure to certain chemicals and gases.
Foot and Hand
This module will provide information on protection for your feet and hands.
It will help you to assess the hazards and then select the correct safety hand or footwear that will provide you with adequate protection.

10. Hotel & Travel Safety
Awareness of some of the risks associated with travel and information on minimising it. Hotel Fires Everything you need to understand and know to cope in the unlikely event of being caught in a hotel fire.
Knowing what to do in a hotel fire is the key to surviving. No matter what safety measures the hotel and its staff provide, the best protection in a fire emergency is to be the alert individual who knows what to do.
The module will walk through the steps you should take when entering a hotel, helping you to assess the risks and providing a set of simple safety measures that will aid you in the unlikely event of your being caught in a hotel fire.

11. Slips, Trips & Falls (incl. Medical Emergency Response)
95% of major slips result in broken bones. They can also cause many other accidents, such as falls from aloft or down stairs.
This module covers the main causes of Slips, Trips and Falls and how you can avoid them. In principle, it is about using your own common sense
This module also deals with Medical Emergency Response.
It is not intended to replace First Aid training. It will, however, give you some basic information on how to deal with specific types of casualty and will guide you through the process of obtaining expert medical help.
The most common causes of this type of accident and how to avoid them Medical Emergency Acting calmly and efficiently in the event of an accident or emergency.

12. Office Safety (incl. Visual Display Units)
Recognising and remedying common office safety hazards. VDU Correct set-up when using a VDU. RSI How to recognise the environmental factors that could lead to the development of RSI and similar complaints.
This module deals with safety in the general office environment, discussing matters such as ambient noise, lighting and trip hazards. You should use the information to consider your working environment and ways of improving it for yourself and your colleagues.
It will also show you how to undertake a workstation assessment and the importance of planning work to allow for breaks away from the screen. Eyesight protection in the office is also discussed.

13. Onboard Familiarisation
