PROCESS SAFETY ACADEMY

Our Process Safety Engineering courses are designed to teach the skills and knowledge needed to prevent, mitigate and control unwanted chemical reactions, explosions, fires, and other hazardous incidents during process manufacturing operations. Courses focus on common hazards in the agrochemical, chemical, food processing, metals, oil/gas, pharmaceuticals, plastics, rubber and related industries.

Process Safety Management: What is it? Why we need it?

There is the belief that only large companies that have large quantities of hazardous chemicals should establish a sound process safety management strategy. This myth is discussed in the session. The need to differentiate a strategy for Process Safety to Occupational Safety is also discussed. Finally, the different strategies for a sound Process Safety Management System are introduced and key elements explained.

NFPA 652 – Standard on Fundamentals of Combustible Dusts

Understanding the Requirements of this New NFPA 652 Standard – 1 Day Training The new NFPA 652 will be coming into effect very shortly with certain mandatory requirements for the management of the fire, flash fire, and explosion hazards posed by combustible dusts. Although this standard provides some flexibility in approaches for ensuring the safety of the occupants, facility, processes, and equipment, some of the requirements must be complied with retroactively.

With over 25 years of experience in conducting thousands of dust hazard assessments and control studies for our clients around the world, we have designed this one-day workshop to help you better understand the applicability of this new standard and make the compliance with its requirements manageable and practical.

Electrical and Mechanical Equipment Selection for Hazardous Areas

Incorrectly specified electrical and mechanical equipment can provide a significant source of ignition for flammable atmospheres. The hazardous area classification process is designed to identify locations within a process plant where ignitable atmospheres exist, and to determine their likely extent. Using this information, the risk of ignition from equipment and devices in these areas can be minimized by either the specification of suitable equipment/devices, or relocating them to a safe, non-hazardous area.

Chemical Hazard Assessment and the Prevention of Runaway Reactions

This course will teach attendees how to identify the thermal and chemical reactivity hazards associated with a chemical process based on the principles of scale-up and development. Attendees will learn how to conduct risk analysis of reactive systems to ensure safety prior to process operations and how to interpret the results of preliminary screening tests through the use of chemical engineering concepts relating to safe plant operation. The course will discuss characterization of thermal runaway reaction through calorimetry methods and the latest techniques for process optimization.
