ESR Technology is giving the Major Hazards Course – 8th – 10th November

11th October 2021

ESR Technology will be presenting our Major Hazards Risk Assessment Training Programme 8th – 10th November at our offices in Birchwood Park, Warrington. The course is regularly run for graduates within the Safety and Risk Management group and to external clients. It is aimed at Engineers and Scientists with a practical interest in the application of risk management and major hazards assessment.

This course is well established and has been delivered by ESR Technology for over 20 years and is used widely as formal major hazards and practical risk assessment training by industrial and regulatory personnel both in the UK and internationally. The course involves formal lectures and interactive syndicate exercises and provides an ideal vehicle for managers and engineers to gain an appreciation of the application of risk assessment techniques and the benefits that may be gained.

The objectives of the course are to provide an:

  • Understanding of the risk assessment process
  • Knowledge of tools and techniques for hazard identification
  • Knowledge of tools and techniques for frequency analysis and synthesis
  • An introduction to the modelling of major hazard consequences
  • An understanding of how risks are calculated and issues surrounding their use.

ESR Technology has also developed a series of free web based introductory modules to deliver an understanding of:

  • Hazard Identification – what are the hazards, can they be eliminated?
  • Scenario Definition – how might a hazardous event develop; how do we prevent it?
  • Consequence Analysis – if the event happens, how bad will it be, who or what will it harm?
  • Frequency Determination – how often is an event likely to happen, can we tolerate it?

ESR Technology is one of the world’s leading practitioners in the development and application of Safety and Engineering Support Services, having largely pioneered the use of safety engineering and risk assessment techniques across many industries (including the chemical process, oil and gas, power generation, utilities, transport, petrochemical, military and food) and governing bodies both in the UK and internationally.
