Process Hazard Analysis

Description:

Join us for this 3-day course as we continue our OSHA 29CFR 1910.119 process safety management series by expanding upon the regulatory element of Process Hazard Analysis. With this management and oversight training course, learn how to properly plan, execute, and utilize PHA activities-methods at your plant site, incorporating the latest regulatory interpretations and trends. Course engagement will be a combination of informative instructor-led modules together with practical, hands-on workshops to provide opportunities for participants to practice and reinforce PHA tools as they are presented and learned.

Who is this training for?

New and experienced front-line engineers, EHS and compliance managers, plant managers, maintenance and/or instrumentation and controls managers, department managers, operations, auditors of regulatory and/or company policy compliance, inspectors, and corporate process safety support staff.

Learning Outcomes:

After attending this course, participants will:

  • Gain in-depth knowledge of the regulatory requirements for PHA under OSHA 29CFR Part 1910.119 and how PHA plays a central role in PSM programs.
  • Understand what factors contribute to process accidents and the role of PHA in identifying them.
  • Be knowledgeable in various PHA methodologies – strengths, limitations, and best applications – for both continuous and batch processes and procedures.
  • Understand PHA inputs, detailed methodologies, study outputs and resources required to more effectively manage and oversee PHA programs.
  • Be able to assist in developing sound study recommendations for evaluation, prioritization and implementation and plan for maintenance and verification of safeguards/barriers/layers of protection in the plant.
  • Become informed of the latest thinking from industry and regulators in PHA coverage, human factors, and current industry standards for facility siting.
  • Learn how Layer of Protection Analysis (LOPA) can be utilized to help formulate, evaluate, and prioritize solutions to reduce risks.

Certificates of Completion will be issued awarding 2.0 Continuing Education Units (equal to 20 Professional Development Hours), often used to maintain professional licenses. Course sessions will be led by instructor(s) from Advantage Risk Solutions.
