The month of February is about to close, which offers up the opportunity to continue your process safety training in March with three important online course offerings from Process Improvement Institute!
The risk review techniques most popular for initial PHAs of entire units or of large projects, MOC reviews, and PHA revalidations are hazard and operability (HAZOP) analysis and what-if/checklist. Both of these techniques facilitate systematic, imaginative searches for process hazards and potential operational difficulties. In this course, you will also learn how to use the failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA) method and you will learn how to use checklists of hazards to supplement your brainstorming analyses. You will learn the best situations and circumstances to use each technique. You will lead and participate in several analyses to familiarize yourself with each technique.
This course teaches how to write effective step-by-step operating procedures and how to develop troubleshooting guides from PHA documentation. This is very much a “How To” course, designed to teach skills. The first day of the course is for both operations and maintenance personnel; the second day is mainly for operators (since they typically must write more in-depth troubleshooting guides).
This course prepares you to evaluate your existing practices versus recognized codes and standards and then to efficiently improve or develop and implement your mechanical integrity (MI) program. Topics also include how to merge your MI program with a reliability program.
Thank you for considering these March courses! And remember, we have more online courses to come in April and beyond throughout 2021 for you to take part in and enhance your process safety expertise! Take a look at our complete calendar for 2021!
