Engineering Procurement

You will learn how to effectively apply business processes that increase value from suppliers, reduce costs and improve overall commercial performance. The course has been developed to meet the specific needs of the chemical, biochemical and process industries.

Establishing a Creative Engineering Culture

Creativity is at the heart of engineering, and is essential for developing innovative products, processes, and solutions to complex problems. Creative approaches are less effective if they are adopted by a few individuals. Real benefit is to be found wherever a creative culture prevails within an organisation. Establishing a creative culture in an engineering organisation takes more than installing some funky chairs, a football table and a suggestion scheme.

Hazard Identification Techniques

This new course will help you better understand the principles of key hazard identification techniques including inherent safety study, HAZID, HAZOP and FMECA.

Hazards of Nitrogen and Catalyst Handling

Nitrogen is very often used in the chemical or oil industries as a “safety” tool but it can be as deadly as any other gas. This course will help you improve the understanding on the basic principles for safe use of nitrogen.

Hazards of Water

Understand how water reacts, where it can be expected and how to eliminate or control it, making your unit safer and the job easier.

Human Factors in Health and Safety

This modular online course will introduce you to the importance of human factors for the chemical and process industries via a case-study incident, helping you to better understand the key human factors topic areas that are relevant to major accidents.

Incident Investigation, Human Failure & Cause Tree Analysis

Improve your incident investigation skills.

Inherent Safety in Design and Operation Development

This course will help you better understand the principles of inherent safety and their application to new and existing facilities. This practical course uses real-life examples that can help establish a safer, more efficient and more profitable plant.

Management of Change: The Essentials

Excellence in the Management of Change Systems within high hazard industries.

Managing the Hazards of Flare Systems

This modular online course examines the causes and prevention of flare system incidents. It comprehensively reviews the operations and equipment used on all types of offshore and onshore flare systems. It categorises the key hazards which must be controlled and reviews in detail the five most common hazards associated with flare system incidents.

Mentoring for Chemical Engineers

This modular online will help you to become a better mentor, encouraging others to manage their own learning and empowering them by asking and listening, rather by instructing and advising. It has been developed with the specific needs of the chemical engineer in mind.

Process Risk Assessment

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.
