Effective risk assessment is fundamental to protecting businesses against the potentially devastating impact of process safety incidents; in most countries it is also a legal requirement.

This online course describes the processes used to identify, assess and communicate process risks from a safety, environmental or business perspective, from a simple qualitative approach to fully quantified assessments, together with the demonstration that risks are as low as reasonably practicable.
