Live online course – starts on 2 November 2021.
Effective risk assessment is key to protecting businesses against the potentially devastating impact of process safety incidents. In most countries it is also a legal requirement.
This online course will help you to develop the skills and knowledge to identify, assess and communicate process risks from a safety, environmental or business perspective, from a simple qualitative approach to fully quantified assessments.
It can also contribute to satisfying the 'Risk Assessment' competence of your application to become a Professional Process Safety Engineer.
Teaching will be delivered via two live modules (approximately 2—3 hours in length each), alongside independent study and pre-recorded video sessions issued before/between modules.
By the end of the course, you will understand:
- individual and societal risk concepts
- risk tolerability
- the principle of demonstrating As Low As Reasonably Practicable (ALARP)
- the five-stage risk assessment process, the different types of process risk assessments, and when to apply them
- qualitative, semi-quantitative and quantitative methods including risk matrices, bow-tie analysis, layer of protection analysis (LOPA), environmental risk assessment, fault-tree analysis, event-tree analysis, hazard analysis, quantitative risk assessment (QRA), and occupied buildings risk assessment.
