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.

This 3-day course (from 09.00-17.00 each day) is designed to provide experienced hyperbaric personnel with the added knowledge and skills needed to fulfil the criteria for the role of the Safety Manager.

The emphasis will be on the review of European Norms that are related to hyperbaric technology (e.g. EN 14931, EN 14971, EN 16081), presentation of the European Code of Good Practice with reference to clinical practice, staff and patient education, infection control policies, firefighting systems and strategies, documentation, risk analysis and general principles in safety management such as safety culture.

The official language of the course is English.
