Management of Change


Save 10% with our Team Discount.

This course emphasizes hazard review techniques commonly used to evaluate changes. It also focuses on improving existing programs for management of change (MOC) and pre-startup safety review (PSSR). You will also learn about other topics such as managing changes during the construction phase of major capital projects, managing personnel changes, and using software systems to manage change. Although the techniques covered in this course meet process safety management requirements, the focus is on effectiveness and efficiency, not simply complying with regulations.

Combine this course with Advanced PHA Leader and Revalidating Process Hazard Analyses and save!
