Failures during the isolation and reinstatement of process plant are one of the main causes of loss-of-containment incidents, and may lead to major accidents.
The course will help participants to develop, review and enhance their own isolation standards and procedures especially in the design phase.
Energy isolation is a key component of the system of work that allows tasks to be completed safely and without unplanned loss of containment with the potential to cause environmental damage or to damage a plant or equipment. This course covers recognition of hazardous energy sources, basic principles on isolation, procedures and methods of isolation, planning and preparation of equipment and testing and monitoring effectiveness of the isolation.
The course provides guidance on how to monitor and test electrical isolation and describe OSHA inspection tools on electrical isolation, OSHA requirements on electrical isolation, electrical isolation technics, LV equipment isolation procedures, grounding and guarding.
There are many situations in which inerting is the only way to meet safety standards during industry processes and maintenance. This course examines methods of inerting & purging, procedures of inerting & purging and how to control and monitor inerting & purging program.
Every year thousands of workers get killed or injured while performing repairs on industrial equipment. Many of these accidents are caused by the uncontrolled release of energy. LOTO is an effective energy isolation program to protect workers and assets.
In this course you’ll learn about logic & mechanism of LOTO, types of LOTO devices, LOTO implementation, LOTO procedures and safe removal of lockout.
PSM is critically important to facilities that store highly hazardous chemicals. Implementing the required safety programs help prevent fires, explosions, large chemical spills, toxic gas releases, runaway chemical reactions, and other major incidents.
This course examines critically criteria and process safety requirements in tanks.
This course provides an overview of the elements of Process Safety Management (PSM) covered under CCPS model in the process industries and focus on the major requirements and benefits of risk based process safety management, and some tools & RAGAGEPs for implementing and managing a system. In this course the participants will learn to use these tools and techniques for good managing process safety.
The Operational Readiness or PSSR is a safety review conducted prior to startup (commissioning) of a new or modified processing plant or facility to ensure that installations meet the original design or operating intent. This course explain what PSSR and RBPS requirements are, and how it works and how it can be combined with other elements of RBPS.
It is one of the most important and complex elements in implementation. Work activities related to this element focus on: preventing a catastrophic release of a hazardous material or a sudden release of energy and ensuring high availability (or dependability) of critical safety or utility systems that prevent or mitigate the effects of these types of events.
MOC is one the important RBPS element that controls new risks. In this course you’ll learn how to identify types of changes, how to plan & deploy MOC program, manage documentation and paperwork, handle temporary and emergency changes, monitor the metrics of your program and tackle common weaknesses and effectiveness issues .
The PS Metrics & Measurements element establishes performance and efficiency indicators to monitor the near-real-time effectiveness of the RBPS management system and its constituent elements and work activities.
This course addresses which indicators to consider, how often to collect data, and what to do with the information to help ensure responsive, effective RBPS management system operation.
A critical aspect of any management system is the need to review performance and to then make corrections to the way it is designed or being implemented to improve results. Attendees in this course will learn how to develop, prepare and perform an audit plan based on CCPS model. Also, the introduction of software and the new PS audit techniques is another topic of this course.
One of the main strategy & goals of all industries, especially process industries, is to prevent disruption and stop production. Business continuity management system (BCMS) with a risk based approach seeks to reduce disruption risks and process events.
In this course, while explaining the concepts and terms of the ISO 22301:2015, BCMS communication with PSM will be discussed.
The root cause of many accidents in process industries is due to a defect in these procedures or not following them. In this course you’ll learn about roll & responsibilities, what the features of a good procedure are, how to develop operating procedures based on RBPS and PSM requirement of operating procedures. Some good operating procedures will also be reviewed.
Through several case studies, you’ll examine historical process incidents where the absence of an effective PSM resulted in serious consequences. By identifying the shortcomings and errors in these PSM programs, you’ll better understand how the concepts presented in this course could have helped to prevent these accidents and how lessons learned can be applied in your own facility. The course instructor will explain many of these failures and errors with a lot of operational experience.
This course will introduce all PSM models and CCPS’ Risk Based Process Safety (RBPS) approach, including the four pillars and twenty elements that define the structure for the RBPS and will Review major process accidents & the role of deficiency in PSM guidelines in accidents occurrence or their spread.
Process safety culture has been defined as, “How we behave when no one is watching”.
This course describes what process safety culture means, what the attributes of a sound culture are, and how organizations might begin to enhance their own culture. Signs of a good process safety culture and some activities and RAGAGEPs in reputable companies are also presented during this course.
Facility siting study involves spacing and placement of all buildings (permanent and temporary buildings) and equipment at safe distances in a process plant.
Facility siting by HIRA element can be used for existing facilities to identify potential safety concerns and help in the placement of new buildings or equipment at optimal distances. In this course, the participants will learn the use of standard industry practice for facility siting with practical examples.
