Proper training is a powerful tool to enhance the employee’s performance in any required HSE-related job. The lack of HSE training has a direct effect on the adequacy expected from the employee to handle various situations that might lead to accidents, injuries, or losses if not dealt with properly. Hence, it is important to provide HSE training, which will enable the employees to become more aware and considerate of their safety by avoiding risks. In this study, a clear definition of knowledge, competency, and training will be presented, along with highlighting the significance of proper HSE training that will have a direct effect on minimizing possible accidents and promoting the performance of the organization from an HSE point of view. Moreover, this study also investigates the training methods approached globally for employees’ training, and the drawbacks of the training programs offered in the present day. To gather the required data, two methods of data collection were utilized to gather the required data in order to address the research question, which are online surveys and interviews with subject matter experts. The results obtained from the data collection will be presented and discussed, along with a proposed solution for the existing drawbacks or shortcomings, and this will be further clarified through a case study scenario of activities carried out in confined spaces. The shortcomings that were identified through data analysis of the two methods will be resolved in the proposed training framework to fulfill the gaps.
