Why attend?

The Chemical and Downstream Oil Industries Forum (CDOIF) have published guidance for determining the tolerability of environmental risk at COMAH Establishments, CDOIF – Guideline Environmental Risk Tolerability for COMAH Establishments v 2.0.  Operators of Upper and Lower Tier COMAH establishments are being encouraged to adopt this methodology.

The training will be based on the requirements of this guidance and will lead learners through the use of presentations and workshop sessions.

The training will provide learners with an understanding of the knowledge and tools to;

  • Proactively assess the environmental risks
  • Develop skills in environmental assessment to understand how to identify potential MATTEs, and implement effective risk management strategies

The course will provide the underlying theory, plus an opportunity to practice applying the techniques.

Note that the course is tailored for use in England, Wales and Scotland.
