Course description

Historical Incident Databases, Plant Layout and Equipment Spacing

This skill module deals with Historical Incident Databases, Process Safety Metrics, and the layout of operating facilities at the Core level.

Suitability - Who should attend?

Anyone who needs to work with process safety engineers; this would include facilities engineers, operations and maintenance supervisors, project engineers and managers, entry level process safety engineers, experienced professionals new to oil and gas, and anyone who needs a general understanding of the breadth of the process safety engineering discipline. Technical staff from insurance companies and regulatory agencies have found the course useful.
