E-624 - Safety Engineering - Module 2

  • Safety engineers, HSE superintendents, other engineers and managers (environment, project, process, instrument and operations) involved in operating or designing and implementing major projects.
  • This course provides the knowledge and tools for coordinating HSE studies, for the different stages of an onshore or offshore, Oil & Gas, grass-roots or major revamping project.
Learning Objectives
  • Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
  • describe the probabilistic methods of safety engineering and typical safety systems design,
  • design safety systems including firewater, fire and gas detection, and over-pressure relief,
  • take part in risk assessment and project evaluation,
  • contribute to a corporate, experience-based, safety culture.
  • Fundamental knowledge of statistical analysis and hazard identification techniques is highly recommended.
Ways and means
  • Highly interactive training by industry specialist lecturer.
  • Numerous applications and illustrations.
  • Several case studies and teamwork sessions.
