TÜV Rheinland Functional Safety Engineer Training Programme: 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 course covers the fundamentals of Process Safety Management, demonstrating how to apply theory in practice, using simple and more complex examples to illustrate key points.
This PH&RA course is part of the TÜV Rheinland Functional Safety Training Programme. Eligible participants who successfully pass the examination will receive a FS Engineer (TÜV Rheinland) Certificate.
FS Engineer (TÜV Rheinland) Certificate
The TÜV Rheinland Functional Safety Training Programme (include link to FS page as current website) is the only worldwide vocational training programme in the area of Functional Safety where knowledge and competencies are approved by a neutral third party and where certificates are issued. Participants who successfully pass the examination will be awarded a FS Engineer (TÜV Rheinland) Certificate.
At the end of the course you should be able to:
- Apply the most popular and internationally-adopted methods and tools for identifying and managing the risks associated with process-related hazards
- Actively participate in and give effective support during the whole process hazard and risk analysis approach
- Identify hazards and analyse risk, including applying the IEC 61882 HAZOP standard
- Relate the requirements of Functional Safety according to IEC 61508 / IEC 61511 to process hazards and risk analysis
- Process Safety Management, Risk identification
- What if?, HAZID, HAZOP, FMEA
- Risk analysis, Risk matrix, Bowtie analysis
- Fault Tree & Event Tree analysis
- Physical Effects Modelling (PEM)
- LOPA, SIL assessment
- Risk evaluation, risk criteria, ALARP assessment
- Risk treatment
- Communication, consultation, monitoring & review
- Selecting the right technique
