This intensive 4-day course is also offered periodically throughout the year to the broader chemical engineering public. Taught jointly by process safety veterans with decades of experience at major companies from the process industries, the course is highly interactive.
This course teaches you how to prepare for PHAs, how to ensure compliance with current U.S. regulations related to PHAs, and how to conduct and report PHAs.
The online course covers the US OSHA PSM 14 regulatory requirements as well as the Center for Chemical Process Safety (CCPS) 20 element approach to process safety.

This online course will introduce you to the CCPS Risk Based Process Safety Management (RBPS) approach, described in the CCPS book Guidelines for Risk Based Process Safety, 2007.  It covers the four pillars and twenty elements that define the structure for the RBPS approach.

In this CCPS course you’ll hear from process safety expert Brian Kelly for an up-to-date look at the causes and contributors to major incidents in the process safety industry and the latest engineering solutions.

Apply Can’t Rather than Don’t to Your Process

William Levinson
Many safety systems rely on human intervention to prevent incidents. A different approach is to make it impossible for a catastrophic accident to occur. Learn how to implement the Can’t Rather than Don’t principle.

Consider the Role of Safety Layers in the Bhopal Disaster

Ronald Willey
As the situation unfolded, numerous layers of protection failed. Take a look at the safety layers that worked and those that did not, and ask whether there are similarities at your facility.
