Refinery Safety Overview (RSO)

Refinery Safety Overview is a training program designed to educate workers on the health and safety hazards associated with working in the petrochemical industry. The program offers an overview of safe work practices and health regulations, providing guidelines for maintaining a safe working environment, and also furnishes the basic training necessary to prevent work-related injuries and illness.

RSO was restructured to integrate interactivity, collaboration, consensus, researching, brainstorming, creativity, match games, physical competitions, skits, and even incorporates virtual-world refinery experiences to simulate dangerous scenarios in a gaming environment.

This accelerated learning approach requires student involvement which cultivates communication, teamwork and critical thinking. It leverages more than just the auditory learning style of listening to a teacher, but integrates hands-on and visual learning styles which are more captivating and produce greater retention of knowledge.

The inspiration for redesigning RSO training was to develop the most engaging, memorable and vitally comprehensive learning experience possible for students. Our goal is for RSO to elevate refinery safety training to be the hallmark of educational training and reflect the genuine passion of our industry for a world-class safety culture.
