The purpose of this 3-day training course is to highlight the safety life cycle pathway from initial major accident hazard identification through to long term sustained and safe operation of a process where a safety instrumented system(s) provides a layer of protection. The occurrence of major industrial accidents has driven an increased focus on process safety. Process safety incidents can induce an enormous loss of capital and business continuity and can cost enormous loss of reputation. On top of that, companies have the absolute responsibility for all coworkers on site including the people around the site. The primary objective of each organisation must therefore always be the elimination or reduction of risk through inherently safe design and the adoption of a multiple layer of protection approach. Often it is very difficult to design an inherently safe process and under these circumstances Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) are employed in order to reduce risks to an acceptable level. SIS are therefore critical elements in support of the overall basis of safety for the process. It is therefore vital that SIS should operate reliably in the event of a process upset in order to prevent / mitigate the hazardous consequence. This is achieved by effective functional safety management throughout the process.
How can you guarantee safety of your employees? What should you do to make sure that you have absolutely done the maximum? How can you manage operational, explosion and chemical hazards and remain compliant with regulations? When can you say the risk level is acceptable? How do you prepare and execute a proper HAZOP study? How do you establish a comprehensive management system? How do you make sure your organisation is fit for purpose and suits the PSM system? This course will answer these and many other questions and is an absolute must to assure the safety of coworkers, to protect the environment and to avoid serious business loss.
