Course Description

Facilities that implement process safety management (PSM) programs to comply with government regulations or follow industry guidelines must ensure that their personnel understand process safety and their role in its continuous implementation. This course provides the most comprehensive treatment of process safety currently available. It is intended to help companies build more robust, complete and effective process safety management programs.

The course incorporates elements required by process safety regulations and by CCPS’s Risk Based Process Safety (RBPS) program but also includes additional elements that are now recognized as key aspects of process safety. For example, the course addresses regulatory process safety elements such process hazard analysis and mechanical integrity, RBPS elements such as performance indicators and competency, and additional elements such as alarm management and damage mechanism reviews.

Hands-on workshops and exercises are used to assist attendees in understanding and applying vital aspects of process safety elements. Videos are used to emphasize and illustrate key points. Instructor-led discussions are an important part of the course and allow our highly experienced instructors to communicate their wealth of experience and knowledge, while tailoring the delivery to the needs of each class.


Contribute effectively to the ongoing implementation of the process safety program for a facility.
