The magnitude of the risk in a process-related facility is determined, to a large extent, during project planning for the installations in the design and construction stage. The aim of the course is therefore to provide students, who in the future plan to do work involving risk management within the process industry, with an awareness of the fundamental issues that control the safe creation of a facility in terms of the Safety / Health / Environment concept.
