About the Course

Effective Chemical Process Safety is paramount for Chemical Plant and Petroleum Refinery Enginnering, Operations and Maintenance. Yet many colleges, universities and other training programs are nearly silent on the essential practical fundamentals of process safety. In previous offerings this course was titled "What Went Wrong? - Learning Process Safety from Chemical Plant Incidents." This course uses multiple vivid case histories both large and small to heighten your awareness, understanding and appreciation of fires, explosions, toxic releases and other chemical plant accidents.Get a real-life look at case histories of process accidents in the petroleum refining and chemical industries. Review numerous actual process case histories and view hundreds of vivid images of olant sites or damaged equipment. Enjoy interactive participation to help identify the causes of previous accidents and learn to mitigate and eliminate chemical process hazards. Learn practical fundamentals during a fast-paced, interactive exchange on Process Safety details between you, other attendees and the presenter.
During this course your attention will be focused on practical "within-the-fence" details that have been overlooked by well-meaning, dedicated employees and resulted in costly incidents. You will review fundamentals and the needed foundations for a Management of Change Program that is vital for Safe Operations.
Some basics of Fires and Explosions will be examined through case histories. You will review process safety elements revealed by Tales Tanks Tell. (Tanks are often the Victims of Chemical Process Mishaps and vividly expose the mistakes of our judgments.)
See a "situation response" technique you can use at your facility, and learn about Relative Risk, Layers of Protection in chemical plants and much more!
