Controlling risks within major hazard enterprises requires a robust process safety management (PSM) system. A key to the success of the PSM system is the experienced application of process hazard and risk analysis (PH&RA) techniques.

This PH&RA course is part of the TÜV Rheinland Functional Safety Training Programme. Participants who successfully pass the examination will receive an FS Engineer (TÜV Rheinland) certificate.

This 4-day course covers the fundamentals of PSM, hazard identification and evaluation, risk assessment and risk reduction, as well as focusing on the principal methods including HAZID, HAZOP, LOPA, SIL classification and the increasingly popular bowtie analysis. It demonstrates how to apply the theory in practical situations, using simple and more complex examples to illustrate key points. The course is considered essential for anyone who is involved in PH&RA.

Risktec Solutions, part of the TÜV Rheinland Group, is a leading authority on providing advice and technical support to clients operating in the major accident hazard sectors, including oil and gas, chemicals and nuclear sectors. Risktec’s consultants have unparalleled technical knowledge and practical experience in identifying and providing process safety and risk management solutions in all the major hazard industries.

At the end of the course you will be able to:

  • Apply the most popular and internationally adopted methods and tools for identifying and managing the risks associated with process-related hazards
  • Actively participate in and give effective support during the whole process hazard and risk analysis approach
  • Identify hazards and analyze risk, including applying the IEC 61882 HAZOP standard
  • Relate the requirements of Functional Safety according to IEC 61508 / IEC 61511 to process hazards and risk analysis
  • Actively participate in LOPA & SIL Classification Workshops


The following topics are covered over the first 3.5 days:

  • Introduction
  • Hazard identification
  • Risk analysis
  • Understanding the hazard
  • Risk evaluation
  • SIL classification
  • LOPA
  • Risk management.

Have a look at the brochure for an explanation of these topics.

Who should attend?

  • Process engineers, safety engineers and managers, instrument engineers and operations personnel, plant and operations managers
  • Anyone accountable for the assessment and management of risks and hazards in the process industries
  • Persons involved in management, engineering, operations and safety of process operations
  • Persons with HAZOP study experience and a basic knowledge of loss prevention and safe working practice

This training will not be industry-specific, however the exercises/worked examples will be based on major hazards associated with oil and gas, petrochemical & chemical industries.
