The 5 day System Safety Engineering Application Course, presented by AMOG Consulting delivers training on the technical aspects of System Safety. The course focuses on the practical application of techniques required to perform Hazard Identification, Quantitative Risk Assessment (QRA), Parameter estimation and Risk Calculation in order to address Safety Arguments and Safety Integrity Level (SIL) requirements. Participants will have an opportunity to consolidate their understanding of presented material with comprehensive hands on case study workshops on industry accepted techniques such as Physical Hazards Identification, HAZID, HAZOP, Fault Trees, Event Trees Functional Hazard Analysis and FMEA.

Learning Objectives

  • Applying Hazard Identification techniques to the appropriate stages of the project lifecycle
  • Conducting effective hazard analysis on complex systems
  • Using industry standard hazard identification and analysis techniques
  • Skills in risk management, reliability and safety, and use of industry relevant risk acceptance criteria
  • Comparison of the standards and requirements
  • Creating, updating, managing and closing out the hazard log
  • HAZID and HAZOP study techniques, roles, process and outcomes
  • Physical and Functional Hazards Analysis
  • Fault Tree and Event Tree Analysis methodologies
  • Parameter estimation, mathematical modelling and interpreting fault tree outcomes
  • Setting and applying Safety Integrity Level (SIL) assignment and application
  • Understand additional industry techniques including common cause analysis (e.g. zonal hazard analysis) and energy trace and barrier trace analysis
