What People are Saying
The content of this course is really good and it gave me the foundations I need.
This course provides an excellent foundation for those who may be required to deal with SIFs in the industry. The content is all applicable to industry and the real world.
Excellent course for operation, design and process engineering. Subjects well designed, organised and presented perfectly with practical examples.
I thoroughly enjoyed this course. Considering it is a foundation course, it teaches you some extremely useful and relevant information, whilst pushing and testing your knowledge of each completed module by means of a test at the end of each stage.
Very good foundation level course for Process Engineers looking for deeper understanding of functional safety life cycle.
Well structured and challenging.

Video and text descriptions
If you have safety moments during PHA sessions like HAZOP / HAZID or LOPA study team meetings, then a simple to follow summary or video can be really helpful. to put your hands on.
All our safety moments are freely accessible once you sign up for our online courses,
WHAT WENT WRONG
Summary of each accident
Get a potted summary of what went wrong in each accident case. Summaries are easy to follow; extracted from publicly available sources.
How to avoid repeat mistakes
Learning lessons from accidents is the main reason for highlighting them. We try to provide a quick overview of the key lessons from each accident, ideal for quick safety moment presentations.
