Incidents continue to occur in various industries that use highly hazardous chemicals which exhibit toxic, reactive, flammable, or even explosive properties, or may exhibit a combination of these properties. Regardless of the industry that uses these highly hazardous chemicals, there is a potential for an accidental release any time they are not properly controlled by a properly de-signed Process Safety Management (PSM) Program. This, in turn, creates the possibility of disaster. The key provision of PSM is Process Hazard Analysis (PHA). This course discusses several PHA techniques and is intended to provide attendees with all the information they need in order to Manage the Process Safety by  planning a  PHA,  select  members for the  PHA  team, lead PHA team meetings, carry out Risk Assessments, and Consequence Analysis of the process incidents, record the meetings, prepare a PHA report, and follow up on recommendations made by the team.
