This is a course detailing the fundamentals of process safety and safety case. The topics covered include technical safety, major hazards assessment, the Workplace Safety & Health (Major Hazard Installation) Regulations, safety case, process safety management and an industry learning journey (to the Petrochemical Corporation of Singapore).
Safety case is a newly introduced regime in Singapore. Professional Engineers (Chemical) from diverse operational backgrounds may not have the specialised knowledge on the elements and requirements of safety case, as well as important process safety aspects in chemical plant operations.
This multistakeholders’ course is designed with the intention to bridge the gaps and offer an experiential learning benefiting both new and experienced engineers with the latest practices, regulations and technologies.
At the end of this course, participants will be able to:
• Explain key concepts of process safety and safety case
• Demonstrate a clear understanding of chemical reaction hazards, process isolation, functional safety, fire and gas detection, ignition controls, risk assessment methodologies, consequence modelling and process safety management
• Understand the requirements of the Workplace Safety & Health (MHI) Regulations 2017
• Demonstrate the ability to develop a safety case
• Demonstrate the ability to conduct risk assessment
• Overview of Safety Case (6 key components)
• Technical Safety
• Industry Sharing
• Major Hazards
• Regulatory Sharing
• Systems & Culture
• Industry Learning Journey
• Possess at least a Bachelor's Degree in Engineering
• Professional Engineer (PE), Chemical
Who Should Attend
Professional Engineers (PE) or equivalent, Safety Case Practitioners
