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.

Combustible Dust Fundamentals (NFPA 652)

2-Day Course: $895, 1.2 CEUs • 3-Day Bundle: $1,195, 1.8 CEUs

NFPA 652 is the “On Ramp” to combustible dust requirements contained in the various NFPA Codes. It contains mandatory requirements for the management of the fire, flash fire, and explosion hazards posed by combustible dusts. Although this standard provides some flexibility in approaches for ensuring the safety of the occupants, facility, processes, and equipment, some of the requirements must be complied with retroactively. Successful completion of the class with the quiz results in receiving Dust Hazard Analysis (DHA) Leader certificate.

The bundle offering includes the standard 2-day course with an additional 1-day class regarding Electrical Classification & Electrostatics Fundamentals (course summary/outline can be found clicking a class link).

Flammable Liquids, Vapors and Gas

2-Day Course: $895, 1.2 CEUs • 3-Day Bundle: $1,195, 1.8 CEUs

This course provides the knowledge and skills to identify, mitigate, and protect against the hazards associated with flammable liquids, vapors and gases. The first day will encompass a detailed overview of the fundamentals of flammability, test methods and interpretation, electrostatic hazards and area classification, and relevant compliance standards, codes and regulations. The second day will cover mitigation and protection strategies for handling, storing and processing of flammable materials. The course covers aspects of NFPA 30 (Flammable and Combustible Code), NFPA 67 (Guide on Explosion Protection for Gaseous Mixtures in Pipe Systems), NFPA 68 (Standard on Explosion Protection by Deflagration Venting), and NFPA 69 (Standard on Explosion Prevention Systems).

The bundle offering includes the standard 2-day course with an additional 1-day class regarding Electrical Classification & Electrostatics Fundamentals (course summary/outline can be found clicking a class link).

Electrical Classification & Electrostatics Fundamentals

Offered as a bundle with Combustible Dust Fundamentals or Flammable Liquids, Vapors & Gas. Contact us for more information.

Controlling electrical ignition hazards in areas where combustible dusts and/or flammable liquids, gases and vapors are processed is a critical part of the Basis of Safety for the process. Misinterpretation or misapplication of the requirements for Electrical (Hazardous Area) Classification can result in catastrophic events that include loss of life. This course will provide a systematic approach to identify, evaluate and control electrical ignition and electrostatic hazards. Attend this course to learn how to conduct a Electrical Classification study, learn how to evaluate ignition sources caused by mechanical equipment and electrostatic sources, and specify appropriate (electrical) equipment in the hazardous areas. The course covers aspects of NFPA 497 (Classification of Flammable Liquids, Gases, or Vapors and of Hazardous (Classified) Locations for Electrical Installations in Chemical Process Areas) and NFPA 499 (Classification of Combustible Dusts and of Hazardous (Classified) Locations for Electrical Installations in Chemical Process Areas).

Process Safety Fundamentals

2-Day Course: $895, 1.2 CEUs

This course will identify and help you to understand the fundamental elements of process safety and the essential ways to control and mitigate risk. Practical recommendations for how to implement process safety program elements will be discussed throughout the course. This class addresses regulatory (OSHA PSM and RMP EPA) aspects, introduces the 20 elements of CCPS Risk Based Process Safety, and provides how to apply best practices to non-regulated facilities.

Process Hazard Analysis (PHA) Leader

3-Day Course: $1,195, 1.8 CEUs

This course provides an in-depth understanding of various types of PHAs, how to select a PHA method, and how to lead effective, efficient PHAs using tips from experienced leaders for ensuring efficiency and avoiding common pitfalls. Various methodologies will be considered as well as the regulatory aspects necessary for OSHA PSM and RMP EPA covered processes.

Reactive Chemical Hazards

2-Day Course: $895, 1.2 CEUs

Chemical reactions are used daily throughout the world to produce a variety of products. Under the right conditions, however, a reaction that has been conducted safely thousands of times can cause a catastrophic event due to unforeseen events or potential consequences. This course will teach you how to evaluate the risks of your chemical reactions to determine the worst-case consequences, design a safe scale-up process, and develop appropriate safeguards for each step in the scale-up process.
