This course from PAS, the leaders in alarm management, will thoroughly cover the seven steps needed for an effective Alarm Management system. Basic and advanced topics on alarm management are covered, including details on understanding and applying the ANSI/ISA-18.2 standard on Alarm Management for the Process Industries. This course will provide a full understanding of effective alarm management, including business issues, industry standards and regulations, best practices, knowledge exchange, and a rigorous seven step methodology for achieving a highly effective alarm system. The presenter of this course is Ian Johnston, a certified PAS trainer. The course includes a copy of The Alarm Management Handbook, Second Edition.
A risk assessment is used to determine whether the risks associated with process hazards are managed to an acceptable level. There are a number of techniques available, and selecting the correct tool is critical to performing an effective assessment. This course is covers both quantitative and qualitative risk assessment tools (including bow tie, layer of protection analysis (LOPA), risk matrix, fault tree) and how they can be applied to the overall safety assessment process.
HAZOP studies are the process industry’s accepted standard for critically examining planned or existing processes and procedures and identifying associated hazards to people, the environment or the equipment. The aim of this course is to train the course participants to become effective and efficient HAZOP review facilitators.
The assessment for NZQA Unit Standard 19341 (HAZOP Participants) is included in this course. NZQA Unit Standard 27243 (HAZOP Leaders) can be achieved with a post course assignment and assessment at an additional fee of $150 (excl. GST) per person.
Process plants are complex and the hazards associated with their operation are not easily identified and managed. However, as recurring process safety incidents show, it is imperative that the hazards and risks related to process plants are identified and adequately managed. This course is aimed at operators and engineers of process plants and offers an overview of the various aspects of process safety across the whole life cycle of process plants.
The classification of areas where an explosive atmosphere might arise is required to permit the proper selection and installation of equipment for use in such hazardous areas. Explosive atmospheres result from the presence of flammable gases, vapours and dusts. The aim of this 2-day course is to develop the competencies required to perform a Hazardous Area Classification.
