Advanced Process Safety Considerations for Hydrogen Projects
Online | In-company
This course provides a detailed look at hydrogen and the hazards associated with it. You will get a detailed understanding of the unique properties of hydrogen, how it differs from more common flammable gases such as natural gas and the different hazards presented by it and its carriers. The course will also provide awareness of control and mitigation measures that can be used to reduce the risk in a variety of hydrogen applications.
Given the detailed nature of the course, it is well suited to process safety engineers, process engineers, HSE professionals, project engineers, plant managers and others involved in the design, operation, modification or maintenance of hydrogen handling equipment and processes.
By the end of the course, you will:
- understand the unique properties of hydrogen, and how it differs from more common flammable gases such as natural gas
- recognise the different hazards presented by hydrogen and its carriers
- have developed an understanding of the hazards and risks associated with the use of hydrogen within the context of a new project design
- be aware of control and mitigation measures that can be used to reduce the risk in a variety of hydrogen applications.
