E-565 - Safety Engineering Workshop

5 days HSE/SEWGB
  • Engineers, technicians, and staff (environment, project, process, instrument, and operations) involved in operating oil and gas field processing facilities or in designing oil and gas projects architecture
  • To provide the knowledge necessary to assess and mitigate risks involved in designing, constructing and operating oil and gas processing facilities
Learning Objectives
  • To learn HSE standards, process hazards analysis methods, and key safety management rules
  • To learn the contents of standard hazard studies
  • To define, forecast and measure possible outcomes and effects
  • To select safety systems including firewater, fire and gas detection, and over-pressure relief
  • To ensure safe operation of oil and gas facilities
  • To take part in risk assessment and project evaluation for offshore and onshore facilities
