Description

Many small and large businesses are required to comply with OSHA’s Process Safety Management of Highly Hazardous and Explosive Chemicals. Unfortunately, they often do not have the necessary knowledge and experience to perform the most difficult part of the standard, which is the Process Hazard Analysis (PHA). In this course, you will learn how to perform a PHA, methodology, the planning and facilitation of a PHA, and more. This course is a team-based case study course where learners gain insights from real-life cases.

What You Will Learn

  • The critical requirement for an effective PHA
  • The consequences of inaccurate or incomplete PHAs
  • How to evaluate consequences and the magnitude of harm
  • Failure modes, human factors, and facility siting
  • Process hazard analysis methods
  • Best PHA methods of the Center for Chemical Process Safety (CCPS)
  • The proper documentation of PHAs
