Perfecting Process Safety Management PSM

Introduction:

Process Safety Management (PSM) has been legislated with increasingly stringent standards to meet the increasing expectations of governments and the public for safe industrial operations. Despite these efforts, incidents continue to occur for various reasons, such as production pressures and cost-cutting measures.

This PSM process safety management course emphasizes the critical role that Managers and Engineers in Process Plants play. They must make informed decisions to prioritize safety and operational efficiency.

Competency in the field and continuous training in Process Safety are essential for preventing accidents and maintaining a high safety standard. This PSM process safety management training provides vital knowledge and skills to enhance safety competencies and operational effectiveness.

Targeted Groups:

  • Process Managers.
  • Process Engineers.
  • Team Leaders.
  • Maintenance Engineers.
  • Health and Safety personnel.

Course Objectives:

By the end of this PSM process safety management course, participants will be able to:

  • Define process safety management and explain its importance in the industry.
  • Identify systems to prevent loss of containment.
  • Analyze common risks and controls in Process Safety Management (PSM).
  • Discuss safe furnace operations.
  • Appreciate the hazards of Start-Up and Shutdown procedures.
  • Understand safe entry procedures for confined spaces.
  • Design effective emergency response strategies.

Targeted Competencies:

At the end of this PSM process safety management training, participants competencies will:

  • Fundamentals of process safety.
  • Systems to prevent loss of containment.
  • Identifying common hazards, risks, and controls in the oil and gas industry.
  • Furnace operations familiarity.
  • Emergency Response planning and execution.

Course Content:

Unit 1: The Foundations of Process Safety:

  • Introduction to Process Safety.
