SAMTECH – Safety Management Technical Training Course


This course is all about improving the effectiveness of what we do, not necessarily doing more. Optimization initiatives often means doing more with less, therefore we need to improve the effectiveness of what we do – every action we do has to count and must thus focus on the right issues, pro-actively. In this course we have a dual approach, clarifying the what, but more importantly focusing on how. We ensure the learners understand the principles of managing change practically, with a major focus on their areas of influence rather than just their areas of concern. Focusing on where and what they can have an influence/make a difference and how to improve on it.) The course is therefore structured such that a high focus is maintained on practical continuous improvement and includes many exercises and workshops.
