The training will be a combination of classroom style presentations and workshop sessions. A heavy emphasis will be placed on the working sessions as the best method of fully understanding the practical implementation.

Scenario designs will be used as working examples of the process to be followed and case studies will be presented of examples of good (and bad) SiD in practice. Attendees will be encouraged to bring examples of specific designs from their own organisation to discuss and assess through the course of the workshop. Break-out discussion sessions will be used to share ideas, concerns and solutions amongst groups to enable participants to best understand how to navigate potential barriers and blockers within their own organisations.

The class size is limited to 20 attendees to encourage group discussion and participation. The material is suitable for staff from a range of backgrounds in (ESI), such as designers and engineers, construction managers, project managers, Asset managers, safety professionals, operational and maintenance workers.
