PHA Leader Refresher
Learn the tips, tricks, and secrets that professional analysts use to conduct efficient process hazard analyses (PHAs). Learn how to optimize process sections; conduct meetings; document work for review in regulatory, public, and legal forums; and analyze facility siting issues within the context of a PHA. These techniques include the Dow Fire and Explosion Index and the use of EPA-mandated hazard assessments in your PHAs. Previous experience leading HAZOPs, what-if/checklist analyses, and/or failure modes and effects analyses (FMEAs) is required. Previous attendance in the Process Hazard Analysis Leader course (or equivalent) is strongly recommended. 0.7 CEU, 0.7 COC, 1.17 CM, ABIH approval #10-223
Revalidating Process Hazard Analyses
In this course attendees learn how to efficiently revalidate process hazard analyses (PHAs). By learning how to use a revalidation decision tree, attendees gain a productive revalidation tool that accounts for management goals, previous documentation, PHA quality, and operating history. Whether or not you are subject to the U.S. OSHA process safety management (PSM) regulation (29 CFR 1910.119), it is considered a recognized and generally accepted industry practice to update or revalidate PHAs or other types of risk analyses every 5 years to confirm that the "risk picture" of the process or facility has not changed.

Management of Change
This course emphasizes hazard review techniques commonly used to evaluate changes. It also includes sections on improving existing programs for management of change (MOC) and pre-startup safety review (PSSR), plus special topics such as managing changes during the construction phase of major capital projects, managing personnel changes, and using software systems to manage change. Although the techniques covered in this course meet process safety management requirements, the focus is on effectiveness and efficiency, not simply complying with regulations.
