The aim of this course is to enable a trainee to identify criteria where the Safety Observer is required to control, monitor and maintain safety for activity; hazardous environments and activities requiring safety observer control; the safety observer responsibilities; and emergency response measures.
At the successful completion of the course the trainee will be able to:
- Identify hazardous environments and activities requiring safety observer control
- Identify criteria where the safety observer is required to control, monitor and maintain safety for activity
- Identify the safety observer responsibilities
- Identify emergency response measures.
