The occurrence of process safety incidents with devastating consequences notwithstanding the implementation of modern technologies only underscores the need and desire for process safety knowledge.

Crucial to controlling and managing major accident hazard is the ability to effectively assess hazardous situations and evaluate the safety, health and environmental consequences and associated regulatory compliance issues. This capability which will require working with accurate drawings and the technical know-how to interpret them can only be acquired through detailed training in process safety.

  • Improved skills and know-how in emerging technologies in Process Safety & Loss Prevention
  • Credibility and respect from peers as a process safety & loss prevention expert
  • Understand the relevant principles of process safety & loss prevention
  • Become knowledgeable of the critical factors influencing the business case for process safety
  • Thorough understanding of process hazards and how the risks can be mitigated
  • Understand the risk and consequences of inadequate management of process safety
  • Proper understanding of process safety requirements at each phase of a project lifecycle from Conceptual Design through FEED, EPC, Commissioning, Operation, Maintenance, Modification and Decommissioning
  • Improved communication of plant safety issues with other discipline
  • Flexibility for enhanced career choices and income

This training course uses both conventional and non-traditional techniques. It utilises small group and facilitated plenary discussions as well as instruction to explore key concepts, models, tools and techniques. Hands-on exercises and case studies are used to practice the application of knowledge and use of skills. Structured reviews provide the opportunity to consider how the learning can be applied to the delegates’ own work.
