The Process Safety for Upstream and Downstream Operations course is designed to provide an overview of process safety management, including interpretation and compliance directives. The introductory course is for engineers, maintenance, and safety personnel who are new to Process Safety Management (PSM). However, it also serves as a review for experienced workers and managers who are working with PSM sites.
There are no prerequisites for this course.
Class attendance is an essential part of the education process and participants in TEEX courses are expected to attend all class sessions and field exercises. This course requires participants to attend a minimum of 80% of the class hours as a component of successful course completion. During the course, your instructor will review any additional attendance requirements, for example a field exercise that cannot be missed.
