A partner of excellencefor oil and gas professional development

E-620C - Safety Engineering Certification

  • Engineers, technicians and staff, not familiar with the concepts of safety engineering, involved in operating oil and gas field processing facilities or in designing oil and gas projects architecture.
  • This course aims to achieve deepen knowledge to assess and mitigate risks, and apply industry-required safety codes and practices when designing, constructing and operating Oil & Gas processing facilities.
Learning Objectives
  • Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
  • describe risk assessment methods of safety engineering in Oil & Gas processing,
  • identify the main advantages and constraints of safety engineering studies,
  • identify the necessary safety engineering studies to be carried out during a project,
  • interpret the contents of standard hazard studies,
  • explain the safe design principles and to propose mitigation measures applicable to each principle,
  • define, predict and measure possible outcomes and effects.
  • Engineering degree or equivalent experience within the Oil & Gas industry.
Ways and means
  • Several applications and illustrations.
  • Several case studies and teamwork sessions.
  • A mini project will be developed and presented during the last week as part of the certification process.
