Petrofac Training Secures Agreement to Deliver Hazard Recognition Plus Training

Petrofac Training, the specialist operations, production and technical training company of the Petrofac Group, has signed an exclusive agreement with US based company, Decision Point Associates, for the provision of Hazard Recognition PlusTM (HRP) training.

HRP is a unique and universally applicable methodology centred around identifying hazards from eight energy sources. HRP provides workforces with a strong foundation in hazard recognition, educating personnel to recognise and determine hazards before an incident occurs, leading to better risk assessment.

Petrofac’s agreement, which runs until December 2007, gives Petrofac Training exclusive rights to deliver HRP training for companies operating in the UK and European Continental Shelf.  The leading safety and technical training specialist has also secured the rights to conduct HRP training for BP’s on and offshore operations globally.

Louise Ferguson, UK/Europe operations director for Petrofac Training, commented: “Petrofac Training is delighted to have been chosen by Decision Point Associates to deliver this training. We continually look for new methods and tools to improve safety awareness and performance in our industry, and HRP enables us to offer our customers a new and innovative tool to do this.”

Nick Campbell, Decision Point Associates’ President, added, “I am delighted to be working with Petrofac Training.  They possess a wealth of experience and have a team of highly experienced professionals to deliver the training.”
