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.

Management of Change & Pre-Startup Safety Review

Course 7

Course 7 - Management of Change & Pre-Startup Safety Review

Explores proven strategies for implementing a workable MOC system. Shows how to implement physical/instrumentation changes through proper use of pre-startup safety review (PSSR) systems.

PHA/HAZOP Leadership Training

Course 8

Course 8 - PHA/HAZOP Leadership Training

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. Also learn how to use the failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA) method.

PHA Overview Training

Course 8-0

Course 8-0 - PHA Overview Training

Provides general background in how process hazard analyses (PHAs) are performed. Explains importance of PHAs for existing plants and PHAs/ hazard reviews for changes to processes. For anyone who needs a general understanding of PHAs.

Updating and Revalidating Process Hazard Analyses

Course 9

Course 9 - Updating and Revalidating Process Hazard Analyses

Prepares you to execute a PHA revalidation that complies with PSM regulations and industry standards. PHAs usually must be updated and revalidated every 5 years. In some cases a complete “redo” may be required if the previous PHA quality and documentation did not meet your standards or regulatory requirements.

Human Error Prevention

Course 10

Course 10 - Human Error Prevention

This course will provide insights into current knowledge of human error and how it can be reduced. The course will provide hands-on experience of practical error reduction techniques, using real-life case studies.

Layer of Protection Analysis (LOPA)

Course 11

Course 11 - Layer of Protection Analysis (LOPA)

Are proposed or existing combinations of safeguards enough to prevent an accident or mitigate the consequences? Do you perceive that doing a fully quantitative risk assessment (QRA) would be over-working the problem? Then LOPA (Layer of Protection Analysis) is the new tool you need to learn.

Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS & SIF & SIL)

Course 12

Course 12 - Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS & SIF & SIL)

Are you involved in determining SIL levels or designing SIS? Do you just want to understand what SIS are and where they fit in to control risk and how these are specified, designed, installed, and maintained? Then this is the course for you.

Job Safety Analysis (JSA) Training

Course 13

Course 13 - Job Safety Analysis (JSA) Training

In this course, you will learn the basics of the performing a Job Safety Analysis (JSA), which is a proven process for controlling operating hazards and costs. You will get a step-by-step overview of the process, and define your role in making it effective.

Human Error Prevention - for Workers

Course 14

Course 14 - Human Error Prevention - for Workers

In this course, the workers (hourly workers such as operators, technicians, lab personnel, etc.) learn the basics of what causes humans (them) to be more likely to make mistakes and what they can do to prevent errors. It also briefly reviews the role that management actions play in preventing human error.

Safety Task Action Reporting (STAR)

Course 15

Course 15 - Safety Task Action Reporting (STAR)
