Open Training Courses

DEKRA has thousands of hours of experience in process safety and over the years has developed a range of specialist courses. Our aim is to assist companies in developing and promoting and understanding of hazard awareness in their workforce as well as providing detailed technical knowledge on hazard and risk assessment and legal compliance. Our courses are available either as public events or as tailored in-company courses. Details of the benefits of each format can be found on the following web pages.

For assistance, please email us or call Hilary Fielder or Victoria Troke on +44 (0) 23 8076 0722.

Preventing Reaction Runaway

This course is designed to equip staff with the necessary tools to be able to identify chemical reaction hazards, interpret test data correctly and develop a robust basis of safety. A special focus is provided on the design of emergency relief systems as a primary safeguard in asset protection and life preservation. It is a multidisciplinary course straddling chemistry and chemical engineering to seek to close the gap between the disciplines which often results in processes being scaled up that could have been inherently safer. The course can be booked as a complete two day package, or as individual days dependent on personal requirements.

Maintaining a SIL Rated System from Commissioning Onwards

This course is for maintenance engineers who are required to maintain a SIL-rated safety instrumented system (“SIF”) and can be asked to be involved in installation and commissioning. It covers the legal requirements for commissioning and maintenance of SIL-rated systems protecting any dangerous substance. Thus the maintenance engineer discovers what needs to be included and covered at installation, commissioning and during maintenance of the SIF. During the life of the SIF the course looks at replacement and repair activities that occur. The course also covers the relevant aspects of the management of changes as well as full and partial proof testing. The result is that anyone involved in maintenance of a SIL rated safety instrument understands what they need, what they can find, and what is required of them.

Design, Development, and Scale-up of safe Chemical Processes and Operations

Developing safe processes is of paramount importance to any chemical company. Exothermic chemical reactions in batch and semi- batch processes can result in serious injury to people and plant if they get out of control. Results of thermal runaways include violent loss of containment, possibly explosion and the release of flammable or toxic materials to the environment.

Run in conjunction with Scientific Update, this 5-day virtual course will be delivered UK time (BST) using the Go-To-Webinar platform.
