Course Summary

To effectively assess emergency situations and evaluate safety, environmental, and regulatory compliance issues, and to create accurate drawings – and the ability to interpret them – are crucial. This combination of classroom instruction and workshop training exercises focuses on critical documentation essential to the safe day-to-day operation of facilities (e.g., P&ID, PFD, Plot Plan, Electrical Area Classification, Piping Drawing, Isometric Drawing, Line List, Tie-In List and Shutdown Keys).

Target Audience

This course focuses on engineering drawings typically used in the chemical and process industries by engineers and technologists in the design phase and by operations and maintenance staff once facilities are up and running. It is suitable for employees, managers, officers of corporations and anyone else with an interest in how these drawings should be created, maintained and used in assessing emergency situations and regulatory compliance issues.

  • Facilities, Operations and Maintenance Professionals
  • Engineers In Training (EITs)
  • I & C, Mechanical Engineers and Technologists
  • Professionals responsible for Process Hazards Analysis / HAZOP / Safeguarding studies.
  • Health & Safety / HSE Professionals

Prerequisites

None

Course Objectives

  • Accurate drawings and the ability to read and understand these drawings are a requirement for the analysis of emergency situations and the assessment of safety, environmental, and regulatory compliance issues such as Process Hazards Analysis / HAZOP studies.
  • This training course will show how facilities relate to the drawings so that participants can focus on improvements.
  • It will also provide engineers dealing with Management of Change the ability to speak the same language as the operators of the facilities.
  • It will form the foundation for base level learning and will provide consistent and improved communications between staff.
  • It will provide improvement in quality and consistency, which will enhance the other processes that rely on the P&ID drawings.

Benefits

Our courses and workshops are experiential, interactive and provide participants with practical knowledge and tools that can be immediately applied back at work.
