Process safety centers on preventing hazards and accidental releases in chemical process facilities or other facilities dealing with hazardous materials such as refineries and oil/gas production installations.
The aim of this course is to help engineers and facility operators gain the skills and knowledge needed for safe plant/equipment design and to eliminate explosions, fires, and other hazardous incidents as well as manage or reduce other risks to acceptable levels (As Low As Reasonably Practicable – ALARP) during process operations.
Students will learn the details involved in process safety engineering design with an emphasis on the oil and gas sector.
There will be the utilization of case studies and end-of-course dummy project to drive home the key learning points and ensure applicability of knowledge acquired.
Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
- Gain a detailed understanding of the key principles of process safety, risk analysis, and its management
- Understand different international and company codes and standards associated with process safety engineering and their application.
- Identify and appreciate primary process hazard analysis methods and their applications.
- Carry out hazards classification and understand detection and mitigation techniques for different types of hazards.
- Recognize different safety engineering deliverables required in engineering projects and become familiar with the requirements and preparation.
- Understand your role in promoting process safety
- Understand software requirement in process safety engineering and their limitations.
