After a very successful 1st Safety Manager course in 2017 at Porto,
it is our pleasure to invite you to our
2nd Safety Manager course
in Barcelona, Spain from October 2-4, 2018.
This 3 day course (from 09.00-17.00 each day) is designed to provide experienced hyperbaric personnel with the knowledge and skills needed to fulfill the criteria for the role of the Safety Manager.
The curriculum includes classroom instructions and practical exercises.
The requirements are completion of an introductory course in Hyperbaric Medicine and working experience in facilities that deliver Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy. Applications are therefore considered from physicians, nurses, operators and technicians. Priority will be given to nurses and operators that have already been certified under the EBAss/ECB scheme of ECHRN and ECHCO.
The course’s objective is to prepare the participant for the role of the Safety Manager in Hyperbaric facilities. Main points of the role are based on a “Global” approach to management of safety and education within the team, including:
the implementation of effective Safety Management and Quality Assurance systems with the use of guidelines, clinical protocols and internal audits that comply with local, national and European directives as well as with evidence based practices.
the application of risk assessment and incident/accident reporting procedures within the Hyperbaric Centre.
the acceptance and monitoring of effective education programs; including requirements for Clinical Practice Development of the hyperbaric team.
