Fundamentals of Process Safety – Asia Pacific times

Topic Safety

CPD Hours 34

Price IChemE member AUD $2860 inc GST, non-member AUD $3270 inc GST

Overview

Live online course – starts on 10 March 2021. 

IChemE's flagship process safety training course is essential for anyone involved in the design, modification, operation and maintenance of a major hazard or process plant.

All process safety fundamentals are covered and participants will emerge with a better understanding of the key principles of process safety and its management.

This online course references the IChemE Safety Centre's management framework built on six functional areas or pillars:

  • knowledge and competence
  • engineering and design
  • systems and procedures
  • assurance
  • human factors
  • culture.

It combines virtual workshops, case studies and theory to teach core areas of a process safety framework.

Teaching will be delivered across five live modules (approximately two–three hours in length each), alongside independent study and pre-recorded video sessions issued before/between modules.

Participants who pass an end-of-course assessment receive an IChemE Pass Certificate in the Fundamentals of Process Safety.

Learning outcomes

By the end of the course, participants will understand:

  • the key principles of process safety and its management
  • the human, environmental and business consequences of poor process safety
  • the key factors influencing the basis of process safety
  • the hazards associated with a process plant and how the risks can be controlled
  • the key process safety requirements at each stage in the life cycle of a process plant from conceptual design through to operation, maintenance and modification
  • the interdependence of and the need for overall organisation process safety management capability
  • how to acquire further knowledge and understanding of process safety management.
