(2-day course) Using PHAWorks® Software

Course Description:
Recording the results of PHA studies is a vital part of performing such studies. PHAWorks is a Windows-based computer software application that facilitates the electronic recording of studies.

As with most Windows software, PHAWorks® is designed to allow its use right out of the box without reading the User Guide. However, users will then only employ a fraction of the software’s capabilities. Great improvements in the speed and efficiency of performing studies are possible with an investment to understand the software’s capabilities. Attendees learn the ropes of using the software from Primatech instructors who are highly experienced in using it themselves. The instructors provide numerous "tips and tricks" of using the software.

This course provides PHAWorks® users with an understanding of more commonly used features. The course covers creating new studies, entering text into dialogs and worksheets, use of special features, navigating through projects, and generating reports.

This course will benefit those who have a basic familiarity with PHAWorks®, or those who are using PHAWorks for the first time.

To instruct users of PHAWorks® on how to take advantage of the full range of capabilities available within the software.

Target Audience:
Individuals responsible for using PHAWorks® to record PHA studies. These individuals may include the PHA Team Leader, PHA Scribe, PHA Coordinator, PSM Manager or other people involved in completing PHA studies.

Attendees should have a basic understanding of Windows-based software applications. Knowledge of PHA techniques is helpful, but not required. Students should come to the course with PHAWorks® installed on a personal computer (a limited number of computers are available for rental from Primatech).

Course Contents:

· Creating PHA projects
· Entering information and data in dialogs and the worksheet
· Navigating project files and the worksheet
· Commonly used features including find/replace, spell check, formatting, undo/redo
· Generating customized reports
· Using Quick Entry lists and Quick copy to speed up data entry
· Adding notes to worksheet entries
· Customizing the appearance of the worksheet
· Use of Analysis Tools and the Library
· Creating master lists of team members
· Use of passwords to protect projects

(2-day course) Process Security Management - Protecting Plants from Terrorism and Criminal Acts

Course Description:
Process Safety Management (PSM) programs have resulted in improvements in managing releases of highly hazardous chemicals for industrial companies. In complying with standards, companies have focused mostly on accidental releases.

However, such established programs do not specifically include releases from deliberate acts. These acts can be from external threats of terrorism, sabotage, vandalism and theft. Indeed, in a Fact Sheet on Site Security, referencing the PSM standard, United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) states "External threats must be considered when conducting a process hazard analysis." Unless properly managed, it is entirely possible that risk from deliberate acts could dominate that from accidental releases. This course deals with managing the risk from deliberate acts.
Recent events have emphasized the need for process security programs and both government and industry are acting to remedy current shortfalls in process security. This course describes a comprehensive program for process security management that parallels process safety management (PSM) programs which address accidental releases of hazardous materials. Such process security management programs can reduce both the likelihood and the severity of terrorist and criminal acts.
Modeling process security management on process safety management offers numerous benefits. Companies have performed a considerable amount of work and have gained experience with PSM programs since process safety related standards became prevalent in the 1980’s and 1990’s. Most process companies invest significant resources in their PSM programs and value them highly. Modification of an existing program, such as an established PSM program, to address process security is easier and more efficient than developing a completely new program. Furthermore, many companies that already have in place elements for process security can readily integrate such programs into an overall process security management system.
While PSM programs provide the framework for a comprehensive process security management program, there are significant differences that require modifications and additions to the PSM framework to accommodate process security. This course presents an overall process security management program and describes these differences. The instructor will provide detailed guidelines for developing and implementing each of the elements of the program.

To identify and develop an understanding of threats to process facilities from terrorism, sabotage, vandalism and theft and provide guidance in performing a threat and vulnerability analysis, as well as inspections and auditing of a facility's current vulnerability level.

Target Audience:
The course is intended for process safety and security personnel, and others who may be responsible for managing the risk of threats to process facilities. Plant or company managers looking to gain more understanding of threats and methods use to manage them at their facilities would also benefit from taking this course.

A general background in process safety, risk management and/or security at manufacturing facilities is beneficial. This course is open only to those individuals who are employees of process companies operating in the United Kingdom or in the United States, or those that work for United Kingdom or United States government agencies.
