Available from American Institute of Chemical Engineers eLearning Center
Whether you are newly a hired engineer or a seasoned engineer professional newly assigned to process safety projects this course will provide you with an overview of the need for process safety and the tools used to implement process safety management systems.
Course attendees will learn about the history of accidents leading up to the recognition that process safety technology and education were needed. They will learn about the US OSHA process safety regulatory requirements and the Center for Chemical Process Safety (CCPS) approach to process safety management. They will be exposed to, learn about, and instructed how to use several of the more common process safety management tools, such as:
The 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. The specific tools used to address process safety requirements, identify hazards, and manage risks include:
• Process Hazards Analysis (PHAs);
• Management of Change (MOC);
• Mechanical Integrity vs. Reliability (MI);
• Incident investigation;
• Layer of Protection Analysis (LOPA); and
• Risk estimation using a Risk Ranking Matrix model.
