CPD Hours 2

Price IChemE member AUD60 (inc GST), non-member AUD75 (inc GST)


Live case study – Thursday 4 June, 09:00–11:00 AWST and MYT, 11:00–13:00 AEST, 13:00–15:00 NZST.

Case studies are used as a training resource throughout the process industries, to communicate vital process safety lessons, without repeating the same costly mistakes.

In Underground Pipeline – Managing Business Risk, you will explore how an organisation manages risk and the conflicting financial pressures. You will examine how making assumptions in asset management can impact the overall risk profile and safety performance. You will experience an incident as it unfolds, without prior knowledge of the outcome.

The online session, developed and delivered by IChemE Safety Centre (ISC) staff, provides a rare opportunity for you to make crucial safety decisions, at designated points throughout, and discover how your decisions impact on the incident.

The interactive and engaging nature of the session will help to embed the lessons learnt from the training, enhancing your understanding and application of process safety procedures.

The session will last between 90–120 minutes and will benefit anyone working in a process safety or management role.
