About this course


This course is designed for practitioners who need to work with Control of Major Accident Hazards (COMAH) Regulations. Participants will develop a solid understanding of the regulations and their implications for responder agencies. They will explore the relationship between on-site and off-site COMAH plans and regulatory requirements, before moving on to the ‘how’ of writing and validating multi-agency off-site COMAH plans.

COMAH planning will be brought to life for participants using case studies, table-top exercises and interactive group work, facilitated by a current and highly experienced COMAH practitioner. The course offers a unique insight into COMAH planning and equips participants with the key tools for writing, assessing and improving single and multi-agency plans.

Depending on availability, this course will either be delivered using our Connected Learning Suite (CLS) or Microsoft Teams.
