Two classroom or live remote training days providing 1.2 CEU (Continuing Education Units) or 12 PDH (Professional Development Hours)

Course Benefits: 
  • Experience the Safety Lifecycle, starting from the conceptual phase of a project right through to operations
  • Learn how to capture and present risk at your facility
  • Find out what happens with all your PHA or Risk Assessment Data
  • Find out how operations and maintenance people know how to manage risk on a daily basis
  • Find out how to ensure nothing is missed or forgotten, so you can prevent hazardous scenarios from occurring
Course Overview: 

Over this 2-day course, participants will experience the Safety Lifecycle, starting from the conceptual phase of a project right through to operations. The course starts with a solid understanding of how to capture and present risk at your facility using software, then addresses using the results of your Process Hazard Analyses, SIL Determination (LOPA), as well as SIL Verification information, and ends by looking at ways of managing risk in real time during operations and maintenance. 

From a good P&ID to a great contingency safety plan for operations, many people are involved in this process and it’s important to understand where the information is transferred and how each phase of the project relates to the next, all being managed with the use of dedicated software tools. The data collected in the initial stages of your new or existing project will ultimately have an impact on how your operators run the plant, and so it is important to know how to ensure nothing is missed or forgotten, so you can prevent hazardous scenarios from occurring. 

This course is not just for the experts but is a valuable overview for anyone involved in hazard prevention and risk management at any level. No knowledge of the IEC 61511 guidelines or other standards is required to participate. Past course participants have ranged from Vice Presidents to Project Managers and Engineers.

Who Should Attend: 
  • Anyone who works in close proximity to hazardous processes such as Operations and Maintenance Personnel, Supervisors, Engineers and Safety Professionals who require a sound understanding of risk and risk management.
  • Engineers involved in facility design and construction will especially benefit from this course.
