TÜV Rheinland Functional Safety Engineer Process Hazard and Risk Analysis Training (5 days)
This 5 day FS Engineer (TÜV Rheinland) PH&RA course is run in accordance with the TÜV Rheinland Functional Safety Training Program and comprises four days of classroom tuition and practical guidance, for understanding and mastering the application of process hazard analysis and associated risk assessment, as required for the early lifecycle phases of IEC 61508 / IEC 61511. There is a five hour competency assessment on the fifth day. Practical exercises will performed throughout the course which will be based on real life examples.
The topics cover the concepts of identifying hazards, using tools such as What-If, HAZAN and HAZOP. This will be further developed into the assessment of risk and methods of risk reduction using preventative and mitigating layers of protection.
The use of Safety Integrity Levels (SIL) and SIL determination using internationally agreed methods for assessing and quantifying process risk and risk reduction requirements will be introduced. Delegates will be equipped with the knowledge and methods for undertaking various types of qualitative, semi quantified and quantitative risk assessments.
Qualitative methods such as risk graphs and matrices will be introduced and used in practical exercises. The most popular semi quantified method of Layer of Protection Analysis (LOPA) will be fully explored with supporting exercises.
In addition, delegates will be equipped with the knowledge and methods for undertaking various alternative methods of hazard analysis and risk assessment such as such as What-If Hazard Analysis, Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA, Event Tree Analysis (ETA) and Fault Tree Analysis (FTA).
Delegates will be taken through the requirements for safety management and the framework of a Safety Management System (SMS) for achieving effective process risk management for a green field (new) project lifecycle. Throughout the workshop, emphasis will be placed on experience and realistic practical exercises and case studies will be used to compliment the instruction.
Who should attend?
Process Engineers, Safety Engineers, Instrument Engineers and Operations personnel who are who are involved in maintaining the integrity of their processes, and are more involved the early lifecycle phases of functional safety management.
