Spring 2017 SENG 455/655: Process Safety Engineering

This course is concerned with all aspects of Chemical Process Safety and Loss Prevention. Process Safety differs from Personnel Safety (or Industrial Hygiene), in that it is concerned primarily with the identification of potential hazards and hazardous conditions associated with the processes and equipment involved in the Chemical Process Industries, and methods of predicting the possible severity of these hazards and presenting, controlling, or mitigating them. This course is offered via distance learning for continuing education credit. Total credit for completion of the course is 4.2 CEUS or 42 PDHs.

Spring 2017 SENG 460/660: Quantitative Risk Analysis

This course provides the opportunity to learn about risk, the applications of risk involved with industrial activities, and how to practice risk-informed decision-making and risk management. Because engineering is a decision-making enterprise, a decision-making way of thinking is used throughout the course. This course is offered via distance education for continuing education credit: 4.2 CEUs or 42 PDHs.

2042:Layer of Protection Analysis

The Layer of Protection Analysis (LOPA) course discusses the quantitative assessment of initiating event frequencies and the robustness of safeguards. LOPA is a popular risk analysis technique. It is conducted after a process hazards analysis has identified hazardous events needing further analysis to better understand the functional and risk reduction requirements for the safeguards. The course stresses understanding of event propagation, the attributes required for safeguards to be qualified as Independent Protection Layers (IPL), and the proper determination of hazardous event frequencies. Evaluating enabling conditions and the appropriate use of frequency modifiers in PHA and LOPA are discussed, as well as the interrelationship of risk criteria and analysis boundaries. The course addresses how to document risk gaps in LOPA recommendations, including using LOPA to assign the target Safety Integrity Level (SIL) to identified Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS). Workshop examples are used to illustrate the methodology and emphasize key learning points.
