How our Award Winning Hazard and Risk Management course impacts learning and development at Hatch?

Hatch’s organizational goal is to achieve No Harm by putting safety first in all processes and structured systems. Their commitment to this goal was demonstrated from their Health and Safety team’s collaboration with Xpan. Together they are implementing a highly interactive Hazard and Risk Management course for their employees, contractors and partners. Purpose of this course involved educating learners on safety policies, procedures and reducing safety incident practices.

“We are truly thankful to share this recognition with the Hatch Health and Safety team,” says Ron Thiele, President and Founder of Xpan. “Together we focus on building an effective learning culture by immersing their team in knowledge experiences; creating a sustainable impact on their daily responsibilities.”

Hatch learners were taken on a journey where they identify the difference between hazards, risks and visibly engage in applicable scenarios. The course is illustrated with animated videos, accessible language formats and displays of detailed learning takeaways.

Learners shared the impact this course had in all aspects of their life at the office, on-site, and at home. Here is what they said:

  • “Very helpful course in terms of understanding hazards and risks, developing a risk rating matrix and applying the Hatch five- fold process through projects planning and execution as well as on day to day tasks.”
  • “The concept of risk management is easy to understand, has very broad application and is a very useful tool to many complex projects.”
  • “This course is relevant and useful in both my work and personal capacity.”


In addition to improving the learner experience for Hatch stakeholders; Hatch has maintained its total recordable injury frequency rate of 0.05 which is below the Construction Industry Institute 10th percentile of 0.12.

“Putting the safety of our team here at Hatch first has been a top priority. The team at Xpan exceeded our expectations with an engaging experience to train our employees on our goal to accomplish No Harm,” says Dan Welshons, Global Director for Health and Safety at Hatch. “We are honored to receive this recognition and look forward to utilizing these training tools for many years to come.”

We can safely say the goal of striving towards No Harm has seen significant progress with the implementation of this course.
