Process Hazard & Risk Analysis



Controlling risks within high hazard industries requires a robust process safety management (PSM) system and the experienced application of process hazard and risk analysis (PH&RA) techniques. This PH&RA course is part of the TÜV Rheinland Functional Safety Programme. The course demonstrates how to apply theory in practice, using simple and more complex examples to illustrate key points. Participants who successfully pass the examination will be awarded a FS Engineer (TÜV Rheinland) Certificate.


Who is this for?

Process engineers, safety engineers and managers, instrument engineers and operations personnel, plant and operations managers. Persons with HAZOP study experience and a basic knowledge of loss prevention.
