e-Training: Inherently Safer Design

COURSE DESCRIPTION                                                                                 DURATION: 1 Day, 9AM-4PM

This course provides an introduction to the basic principles of Inherent Safety (IS) and highlights the differences between a traditional and inherently safer design (ISD). The participants will learn about how to implement ISD principles, where it fits best in the design life cycle, and how to measure it. They will also learn about the different techniques used to conduct IS reviews in a facility. The course describes the challenges to implementation of ISD principles and how different regulatory regimes have implemented them.

Course Benefits

  • Learn to use principles of IS in new and existing facilities
  • Learn about the hierarchy of controls
  • Learn the benefits of ISD
  • Learn from practical examples on how to implement ISD at your facility
  • Learn how ISD is practiced in different regulatory regimes and new changes expected in the US

Who Should Attend

  • PSM Managers and Coordinators
  • Process, Safety and Mechanical Engineers
  • Professionals with a background in science and engineering
