Course Description

Management of Change (MOC) programs are intended to ensure that changes to a process are properly reviewed and any hazards exacerbated or introduced by a change are identified, analyzed, and controlled prior to making the change. MOC is deceptively simple in concept but it can be one of the more difficult process safety elements to implement effectively.

This course teaches participants how to establish a new or improve an existing MOC program. Examples are provided of how changes, including even very simple ones, have caused accidents. Keys to successful implementation of a MOC program are discussed and guidelines on establishing an effective MOC program are presented.

What you will learn:

  • Regulatory requirements for MOC
  • The types of changes covered by a MOC program
  • How to design and implement a MOC program
  • How to improve an existing MOC program
  • The elements of organizational change management
  • MOC personnel roles, responsibilities, and qualifications
  • A procedure for developing and implementing a MOC program
  • Guidelines for developing and implementing a MOC management system
  • How to interface a MOC program with other PSM elements

Who Should Attend

Process safety managers / coordinators; MOC coordinators; Engineering and maintenance personnel; and others who participate in decisions about process changes.


Experience in process safety is desirable.
