N638 - Fundamentals of the Safety Lifecycle

Course Overview
Over this 2-day course, participants will experience the Safety Lifecycle, starting from the conceptual phase of a project right through to operations. The course starts with a solid understanding of how to capture and present risk at your facility using software, then addresses using the results of your Process Hazard Analyses, SIL Determination (LOPA), as well as SIL Verification information, and ends by looking at ways of managing risk in real time during operations and maintenance. From a good P&ID to a great contingency safety plan for operations, many people are involved in this process and it's important to understand where the information is transferred and how each phase of the project relates to the next, all being managed with the use of dedicated software tools. The data collected in the initial stages of your new or existing project will ultimately have an impact on how your operators run the plant, and so it is important to know how to ensure nothing is missed or forgotten, so you can prevent hazardous scenarios from occurring.

This course is not just for the experts but is a valuable overview for anyone involved in hazard prevention and risk management at any level. No knowledge of the IEC 61511 guidelines or other standards is required to participate. Past course participants have ranged from Vice Presidents to Project Managers and Engineers.

Participants will learn to:
•	Expand and improve upon traditional understanding of the safety lifecycle in the process industry.
•	Discuss and evaluate the interaction between Process Hazard Analysis (PHA) and other PSM elements. 
•	Develop a deeper insight into Process Safety Engineering, Construction and Validation.
•	Construct, propose and implement a pragmatic strategy to manage deviations from the intended operating 
        philosophy and design.
•	Understand, clarify, and execute the concepts of Safety Integrity Level (SIL) Determination, SIL Verification, 
        contingency planning and Safety Requirements Specification (SRS).

A complete set of course materials and lunches are included.
