N637 - Fundamentals of Risk Based Process Safety Management

Course Overview
This two-day course is designed to give personnel involved with the safe and reliable operation of process facilities a basic understanding of process safety management using CCPS Risk Based Process Safety. The course has been developed to be interactive using both group work and case studies to reinforce the learning and understanding. Participants will learn the differences and similarities between occupational and process safety systems and how they work together. They will see a comparison of the current industry standard PSM programs, the importance of each PSM component and how the application of each element impacts daily work activities. The objective is to help the participants understand how PSM integrates into their current safety management system and implementing key aspects of PSM with the field workforce. 

Participants will learn to:
•	Examine and categorize the similarities and differences between occupational and process safety systems, 
        and describe their functions operating in tandem.
•	Compare and contrast current Industry Standard Process Safety Management (PSM) programs.
•	Develop an understanding of Risk-Based Process Safety Management (RBPSM) and its applicability in the industry.
•	Identify and analyze the importance and key details of each PSM component.
•	Discuss the application of each PSM element and their impact on daily work activities.
•	Establish and describe the relationship between safety culture and PSM.  
•	Formulate practical strategies using succinct comparisons and analytical approaches to investigate areas 
        requiring additional scrutiny.
•	Demonstrate the methodology for integrating PSM into current safety management systems and propose 
        key implementation procedures for applying PSM in the field.

A complete set of course materials and lunches are included.
