Overview

Live online course – starts on 3 September 2020.

Hazard identification requires a systematic and methodical approach to ensure all risks are recognised, prioritised and managed. 

This online course will help you develop the skills and knowledge to prevent and protect against the effects of process safety incidents. You will explore a range of hazard identification techniques, their advantages, limitations and when to apply them. 

The course features a variety of learning methods, including online workshops, practical exercises, case studies and video. It can also contribute to satisfying the 'Hazard Identification' competence of your application to become a 'Professional Process Safety Engineer'.  

Teaching will be delivered via two live modules (approx. 2-3 hours in length each), alongside independent study and pre-recorded video sessions issued before/between modules. 

An e-certificate will be issued at the end of the course to confirm attendance and CPD hours logged.
