PHA Leader using HAZOP (2 days) + PHA Leader Coaching (3 days)

PHA Leader using HAZOP (2 days)

Course Description

This two day course provides sound and detailed instruction into how to carry out an effective HAZOP study and where PHA methods fit into the overall process safety management work process and the IEC 61511 safety lifecycle. As part of performing a HAZOP, the importance of process safety information, risk criteria, and documentation will be covered. The course will acknowledge many hazard identification techniques, but will focus on HAZOP, providing students the opportunity to work through hands on exercises in detail to gain the skills needed to facilitate a HAZOP study. These exercises will demonstrate how any hazard identification technique provides a foundation for other more advanced activities designed to estimate risk. Coverage of PHA documentation allows the student to see how the technical foundation they help develop is used throughout the life of the facility.

The FSP Exam (Process Hazard Analysis using HAZOP Specialty)

The exida Functional Safety Practitioner (FSP) program is a certificate program that provides confirmation that an attendee shows competency by retaining the knowledge presented in this course. The FSP program also provides an analysis of where the candidate’s strengths and weaknesses lie, helping participants judge their competency level if interested in obtaining a certification like the CFSE or CFSP. The exam will be given at the conclusion of the training course, and is optional. Therefore if you wish not to participate, please let your instructor know. The candidate must achieve a minimum of 80% on the exam in order to receive their FSP certificate.

CFSP / CFSE Exam Fees

Exam fees should be paid on + $200 administration fees 

PHA leader coaching workshop (3 days)

Three (3) days PHA leader coaching workshop above the technical skills required for PHA, a number of management skills are necessary when guiding a team of discipline experts through the methodology and emerging with the most accurate results in terms of hazard risk and operability issues. TWorkshop attendees will be made aware of and provided with techniques for the following challenges:

  • Time management
  • Managing vested interests
  • Managing team dynamics, (dominant members; getting team consensus; maintaining motivation; fatigue etc)
  • Ensuring high quality of PHA information capture and report documentation.

As input information for the PHA workshop it is assumed that the client will provide example hazard scenarios together with the relevant P&ID’s, process description and pertinent process safety information
