Safety Engineering Certification


Who should attend?

  • 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.
Public :
  • Engineers, technicians and staff, not familiar with the concepts of safety engineering, involved in operating Oil & Gas field processing facilities or in designing Oil & Gas projects architecture.

Level :Skilled

Prerequisite :
  • Engineering degree or equivalent experience within the Oil & Gas industry.

Course Content

  • Module 1: FUNDAMENTALS

      • Fundamentals of safety engineering.
      • Preliminary hazard analysis. HAZID.
      • Hazard and operability. HAZOP.
      • Major hazard assessment.
      • Layer of protection.
      • Plot plan review.
      • Prevention of hydrocarbon ignition.
      • Prevention of fire escalation.
      • Engineering of emergency escape and evacuation resources.

      • Inherently safer plant design.
      • Consequence analysis methodology.
      • Quantitative Risk Assessment (QRA).
      • Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS).
      • Design of fire and gas detection systems.
      • Active and passive fire protection.
      • Human factors and human errors.
  • Module 3: PROJECT

      • Safety engineering mini-project for a specific surface production facility:
      • Hazard identification: HAZID/HAZOP.
      • Major hazard assessment. Consequence analysis.
      • Plant layout. QRA.
      • Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS).
      • Fire protection and emergency response.

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 propose mitigation measures,
  • define, predict and measure possible outcomes and effects.

Ways & 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.


  • An international recognition of your competencies.
  • A is delivered Advanced Certificate.
  • An expertise confirmed in Safety Engineering .
  • Ready-to-use skills.
