Course description

Specific Plant Systems and Equipment

This skill module covers several sections, including piping systems, storage facilities, pumps and compressors, heat exchangers, and pressure vessels.

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. Those requiring a less technical course may be interested in PS-2, Fundamentals of Process Safety; and risk-based process safety management is the subject of HS45.
