The Worst Plant: A Virtual H&S Audit

Join Ramboll Environ’s team of multi-certified, highly experienced and field-savvy senior consultants for an energetic, collaborative and audience participation-focused virtual health and safety (H&S) training experience.

Our senior consultants will guide participants through a virtual tour of “the worst plant in the world,” using digital renderings of real-world H&S regulatory compliance issues. The overall goal of the session is to educate participants about hazard and risk assessment techniques, and various compliance audit and assessment scenarios.

This highly interactive eight-hour seminar covers the primary H&S topics — from abrasive wheels to Subpart Z — encountered in today’s businesses. The course also includes a discussion of relevant guidelines, standards and directives, as well as other pertinent communication, training, legal, regulatory and safety topics.
