In chemical processing, understanding how adverse incidents can arise is an essential component of effective process safety management. This intermediate course is the first of a group directed at the management of hazards and risk. Students will examine the concepts of hazards, consequences and risk and learn how physical conditions and material properties can present hazards in a process. Finally, students will discuss how failures in selected equipment categories and deficient performance in management systems and procedures can allow hazards to evolve into adverse incidents.

Using case studies, the course will introduce students to the thought process safety practitioners use to anticipate hazardous situations when participating in hazard identification and risk assessment activities. This course positions students to better appreciate the courses that immediately follow in sequence, which will describe the tools available to manage hazards and risks after they are identified and understood.
