Process Safety Analysis

A process safety analysis is a set of organised and systematic assessments of potential hazards associated with work / process / operation. This short course is intended to provide information to assist managers and employees in making decisions for improving safety and reducing the consequences of unwanted or unplanned events that can result due to work, process or operation.

Process safety analysis is directed toward analysing potential situations that produce hazards which consequences can result in fires, explosions, releases of toxic or flammable chemicals, spills of hazardous chemicals, personal injuries, and third party injuries thus it focuses on assessing equipment, instrumentation, utilities, human actions, and external factors that might impact.

The final aim of this course is to enhance participants’ to use their expertise and knowledge in a systematic manner to create standard operational procedures which will also include the health and safety aspect that is required to as far as reasonably practicable eliminate any incidents, accidents or ill health.
