Level :Knowledge

Prerequisite :
  • Provide evidence of a professional experience of at least 3 months within oil or chemicals storage or (un)loading activities.

Course Content

    E-learning: PRODUCTS HAZARDS - PREVENTION & OPERATING PRECAUTIONS
  • Module 1 - OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH & SAFETY

      • Vocabulary and safety indicators.
      • Potential hazards in facilities.
      • Hazardous products classification.
  • Module 2 - FLAMMABILITY

      • Combustion phenomenon.
      • Ignition sources and consequences of a combustion.
      • Preventive measures against ignition risks.
  • Module 3 - OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH

      • Products toxicity.
      • Specific risks to most common products in plants.
      • Chemical risk prevention.
  • Module 4 - FLUIDS BEHAVIOR

      • Pressure in a vessel.
      • Heat addition consequences.
      • Heat removal consequences.
    TRAINING SESSION (4 days)
  • PRODUCTS RISKS: PREVENTION & OPERATING PRECAUTIONS - Duration : 0.75 Day

      • Case studies involving products risks analyzed in subgroups, in order to strengthen information from the e-learning. Share ideas with the entire group. Lessons learned.
  • EQUIPMENT RELATED RISKS - SAFETY DEVICES - Duration : 1.25 Days

      • Atmospheric and under pressure storage tanks: different kinds of construction, pressure and vacuum resistances, safety devices (vents, relief valves, hydraulic safety shut-off valves, positive safety valves, etc.).
      • Safety in tank storage operation. Typical incidents.
      • Loading/unloading tank trucks, railcars, tankers, etc.: loading stations layout (top or bottom fillings), safety devices & safety instrument systems, vapor recovery.
  • SAFETY IN STORAGE TANKS COMMISSIONING & DECOMMISSIONING OPERATIONS - Duration : 2 Days

      • General decommissioning approach with 5 different steps. “Zero energy” approach. Understanding & complying to procedures, risks from routine.
      • Draining-purging-blowdown: safety and environmental aspects.
      • Degassing-inerting-cleaning: HP cleaning and pumping liquid wastes, type of pumping according to products (volumetric pump, vacuum)
      • Lockout/Tag-out procedure (LOTO): type of LOTO according to different activities planned.
      • Works permits: endorsement and responsibilities.
      • Activities with specific risks: confined space entry. Gas test, ventilation, supervision.
  • HANDS-ON ACTIVITIES ON A TYPICAL STORAGE EQUIPMENT DECOMMISSIONING

      • Case study, common thread of this training, used as a workshop with different groups of trainees in order to apply the different topics. Procedure writing with instructions for each step. Presentation to the group, sharing & discussions. Lessons learned.

Learning Objectives

  • Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
  • Identify the risks related to the products used on a facility and the various materials present on the storage units,
  • Identify possible preventive measures,
  • Order the different phases of the provision of a storage facility.

Ways & Means

  • E-learning modules before the training to learn & refresh knowledge about risks.
  • Workshop: decommissioning and commissioning procedure for a typical unit selected based on trainees’ origins (atmospheric tanks, under pressure storage, recovery unit, etc.).
  • Case studies and analysis of incidents and accidents.
  • Agenda can be adapted to professional needs from the group of attendees.

Learning assessment

  • Quiz.
