20 Elements of Risk Based Process Safety (RBPS)

eLearning (online) Course
This online course will introduce you to the CCPS Risk Based Process Safety (RBPS) Management 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.

Advanced Concepts for Process Hazard Analysis

Public (classroom) Course
This advanced course expands the knowledge & application of process hazard analysis beyond those presented in CH157 to show how order-of-magnitude scenario risk calculations can be extended to other uses.

Basics of Laboratory Safety

eLearning (online) Course
This SAChE certificate program course provides a complete review of safety for laboratories handling hazardous chemicals.

Chemical Reactivity Hazards

eLearning (online) Course
Chemical Reactivity Hazards is a web-based SAChE module that shows how uncontrolled chemical reactions can lead to serious harm.

Dust Explosion Control

eLearning (online) Course
CSB has made recommendations that should help prevent dust explosions, and this certificate is based on these recommendations.

Foundations of Process Safety

Public (classroom) Course
Offered outside of North America, this intensive and highly interactive 4-day course trains chemical engineers in the fundamentals of Process Safety. Taught jointly by process safety veterans with decades of experience at major companies from the process industries.

Fundamentals of Process Safety

Public (classroom) Course
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.

Hazard Identification for Operators and Maintenance Workers

eLearning (online) Course
This course helps operators learn how to recognize and respond to hazards at the field level. Attendees learn how to identify, rank and address the physical and process safety hazards they may encounter in the workplace.

HAZOP Studies

eLearning (online) Course
Learn the concepts and techniques of the Hazard and Operability (HAZOP) Study methodology, including related matters of preparation, team meeting facilitation and reporting.

HAZOP Studies/Advanced PHA Concepts Combo Course

Public (classroom) Course
This course is a combination of HAZOP Studies and Other PHA Techniques for Process Safety and Risk Management (CH157) and Advanced Concepts for Process Hazard Analysis (CH754).

Incident Investigation

Public (classroom) Course
Incidents are minor occurrences and are often the result of a single failure or defect. Join Incident Investigation expert Brian Kelly for an in-depth look at a look at the systematic process of examining and evaluating the causes of an incident so that recurrence can be prevented.

Inherently Safer Design

eLearning (online) Course
This SAChE course provides information for understanding inherently safer design of chemical processes and plants.

Inherently Safer Design

Public (classroom) Course
Get up-to-date on a fundamentally different approach to safety in the manufacture and use of chemicals. In one day, you’ll learn about inherently safer product and process design (ISD) as a way to eliminate or significantly reduce hazards—rather than develop add-on protective systems and procedures.

Layer of Protection Analysis (LOPA)

eLearning (online) Course
This online course offers an overview of Layer of Protection Analysis (LOPA) to mitigate risk in your processes.

Managing Process Safety Risks During Organizational Change

Public (classroom) Course
Through illustrated case studies and lessons learned, this course provides in-depth understanding of the framework for establishing OCM program and implementing OCM procedures for different types of changes.

Nitrogen's Role in Safety

eLearning (online) Course

This SAChE Safety Certificate focuses on Nitrogen which is a staple of the chemical industry.
