E.S.M. delivers training in all Australian states and territories, both independently and on behalf of Engineering Education Australia (EEA).  We offer a range of training courses: off-the-shelf and ready-to-go or tailored to suit your business needs.

Training courses offered by E.S.M. include:   

  • Implementing Safety in Design (In-person, 1-day, Online, 2 half days)
  • Functional Safety Awareness (Online, 2 half days)
  • Safety in Design: Legislation and Duties of Designers (Half-Day)  
  • Safety in Design (SiD) Review Workshop Facilitation (2-Day)
  • The Engineering and Design Lifecycle (Online, 8 hours, self-paced)

E.S.M. also offers bespoke training courses as well as coaching and mentoring, tailored to client needs in the following areas: 

  • Systems Engineering  
  • Specific Safety in Design activities, i.e. SiD Impact Assessment, SiD Planning, SiD Review Participation

Functional Safety Awareness 


Functional Safety is a process used by a range of industries to deal with hazards. When other methods are not enough to reduce the risk to an acceptable level, one option is to implement what we call “Safety Instrumented Functions” (SIFs) to give us that additional risk reduction. Safety Instrumented Functions are functions that act in response to detected conditions to prevent a dangerous outcome and do so with a known level of integrity.

This training aims to equip participants with an awareness of what functional safety is and the standards involved. This will allow participants to better manage functional safety requirements, collaborate with FS specialists, and understand where and how FS specialists contribute to a project. This contributes to successfully handing over a SIL compliant system to those responsible for its ongoing operation and maintenance.

By the end of the course, you’ll be able to better manage functional safety requirements by knowing when you need to call in the specialists and effectively collaborate with them, knowing how to implement functional safety requirements in an engineering lifecycle, and successfully hand over a Safety Integrity Level (SIL) compliant system.

Implementing Safety in Design                                   


Implementing Safety in Design is E.S.M.’s most popular training course.

In this course, participants learn how to implement Safety in Design (SiD) in a practical way throughout the end-to-end engineering lifecycle. 

The tools and techniques covered in this course provide the means to meet the duties of designers and obligations under related legislation (i.e., harmonised WHS and OH&S in VIC and WA). 

Participants learn how to systematically identify and manage hazards throughout the lifecycle of assets (or systems, plant, structures, components, places of work) to help ensure that they are designed, safe so far as is reasonably practicable (SFAIRP), to build, commission, operate, maintain and demolish. 

Participants get to apply and reinforce their knowledge through the use of case studies.

Safety in Design Review Workshop: Facilitation  


A Safety in Design (SiD) Review is a consultative workshop used to systematically identify hazards through the analysis of assets at each life cycle phase. A reasonably practicable decision-making process as well as the Hierarchy of Controls is applied to determine appropriate control measures.   

This two-day training course gives participants the skills and confidence to plan, organise and facilitate a Safety in Design (SiD) Review Workshop.  

Our Clients use this course to develop an internal resource (or resource group) to independently run efficient and successful in-house SiD Review Workshops.

The Engineering and Design Lifecycle


This self-paced course defines the steps in the lifecycle, and what you need to know. We’ll cover:

  • the requirement specification
  • concept and preliminary design
  • detailed design
  • design reviews
  • verification and validation
  • construction and commissioning
  • operations and maintenance
  • end of life

Safety in Design: Legislation and Duties of Designers  


This half-day (four hour) course provides engineers, designers and project managers with an overview of their legal obligations related to safety in design.  

Course content is tailored to the specific legislation of the State or territory in which the training is being delivered.  

Participants learn about their legal obligations related to: hazard identification and management throughout the engineering lifecycle, determining what is “reasonably practicable”, design deliverables and information transfer.  

This can be a stand-alone course or serve as a precursor to the more detailed Implementing Safety in Design, 1-Day course.
