Safety demands a deep knowledge and application of effective hazard analysis methods. In this highly interactive course, you’ll have the opportunity to expand your basic understanding of process hazard analysis and learn how to extend order-of-magnitude scenario risk calculations to other uses. Join Robert Johnson – primary author of the CCPS book Guidelines for Hazard Evaluation Procedures, 3RD Edition – and take a detailed look at the HAZOP Study and other PHA methods and engage in exercises that give you hands-on experience applying key concepts learned. You may take this advanced course sequentiallywith AIChE’s HAZOP Studies and Other PHA Techniques for Process Safety and Risk Management (CH157) or separately.
Beyond the basics
In two days, you’ll work with a team to learn and practice the PHA techniques successfully being applied in the process safety industry today. Using a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet provided during the course, you’ll document and analyze HAZOP Studies. You’ll then modify your spreadsheet to include findings and recommendations as pseudo safeguards. You’ll also examine the concept of importance measures applied to PHAs and how to use a PHA to identify safety instrumented systems (SIS) and safety integrity levels (SIL). You’ll conclude the course by reporting your HAZOP Study results in a team presentation before other course participants.
When you attend this course, you’ll also receive the CCPS book Layer of Protection Analysis: Simplified Process Risk Assessment.
