Project Management

Project Management for the H&S Professional

This two-day, hands-on course is designed to provide health and safety practitioners with the tools and techniques to plan, manage, close and evaluate a project related to the health and safety environment. Based on best-practices in project management today, participants will also examine the leadership skills required to link health and safety project management to the operational areas of his or her entire organization.

Participants will work on a “live” project from the health and safety environment and apply PM tools and processes to simulate a complete project life cycle: from initiation to closure. Comparisons will be drawn between participants’ current projects and past case studies.

Teams will be structured so that each team has participants from various work environments. The course is hands-on, with practice simulations, using forms and templates commonly used in the project management field.

The course will be based on the 5th edition of PMI’s Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK®) and Canadian best practices in the safety profession. 

 

Course participants will be able to:

  • Use the terminology and processes of modern project management

  • Define the business case for a H&S project

  • Prepare a complete and accurate project plan for a H&S project

  • Facilitate team discussion to learn from the experience of others

  • Use project management forms and templates for a H&S project

  • Discuss project life cycles and the importance of milestones for project control

  • Build a project schedule with major milestones

  • Identify the interaction of a H&S project with the day-to-day operations

  • Build a communications plan for the H&S project to ensure longterm success

  • Value the importance of post-project reviews and evaluating project success

  • Value the benefits of a consistent project management methodology.
