N641 - PHA/HAZOP Facilitation Training

Course Overview
This 3-day PHA / HAZOP course is designed to deliver expert instruction on how to successfully plan and execute Process Hazards Analysis (PHA) studies efficiently and effectively.  This includes understanding the principles behind each of the major PHA methods (HAZOP, What-if?, Checklist, FMEA), learning how to deal with challenging personalities within the PHA team, how to avoid common pitfalls and traps so your PHA studies run smoothly, and how an analytics approach can be used to the PHA outcomes to identify what you are relying on most to keep you safe.

Participants will learn to:
•	Develop a robust understanding of the key concepts of Process Hazards Analysis (PHA) and its role in Health, 
        Safety and Environment management.
•	Define and apply the most common PHA hazard identification techniques.
•	Characterize the responsibilities involved in PHA participation and leadership.
•	Identify and apply the basic skills and practices of What-If? and HAZOP techniques.
•	Construct realistic guidelines and effective leadership strategies to facilitate PHA's within organizations.
•	Distinguish the principles behind each of the major PHA methods (HAZOP, What-If, Checklist, FMEA).
•	Formulate strategies for dealing with challenging personalities within the PHA team and avoid common 
        pitfalls during PHA studies.
•	Provide practical opportunities to prepare drawings, populate software and facilitate studies using Piping 
        and Instrumentation Diagram (P&ID) drawings. 

A complete set of course materials and lunches are included.
