Abstract: These guidelines contain the summary and highlights of the JRC training course “Assessment of Reports on Major Hazards: a focus on the technical aspects of the assessment”, the first training course organised under the Virtual Centre of Offshore Safety Expertise (ViCOS). The training course was held in October 2016 at the JRC premises in Ispra, Italy, and saw the participation of representatives from ten Member States. The main author and provider of the training course was Mr. Steve Walker, former Head of Offshore Division at UK’s Health and Safety Executive, with the valuable contribution of Ms. Myrto Konstantinidou, safety expert at the Demokritos National Centre of Scientific Research. The assessment of Reports on Major Hazards (RoMHs) is one of the fundamental requirements of Directive 2013/30/EU, imposed to appointed MS Competent Authorities. The two-day training course aimed at providing participants with an understanding of RoMHs technical features, key contents and aspects to be considered during and after the assessment. Each session of the course consisted in presentations followed by group exercises. Excellent feedback was received from the participants, along with useful suggestions for improvement in the organization of future courses under ViCOS.
