Introduction

Currently process plants face significant challenges that significantly affect their productivity, efficiency, product quality, safety, integrity, and security. A well design alarm management system can address these challenges whereas a poorly designed alarm management system can cause serious consequences and also become a nuisance to plant operators and other personnel. Plant personnel dealing with the above issues need to attend this seminar lo learn and apply best practices of alarm management using real world examples and tools. Delegates will return to their jobs not only with a better understanding of alarm management best practices but equipped with a set of practical set of techniques, procedures and tools to optimize their alarm management system to increase the productivity, efficiency, product quality, safety, integrity, and security of their processes.

This seminar will highlight:

  • A review of P & ID diagrams, process control, and process safeguarding
  • Alarm management principles and alarm philosophy
  • Alarm identification and rationalization
  • Alarm design, implementation, operation and maintenance
  • Alarm performance monitoring and assessment
  • Use of hands-on tools for alarm rationalization, design, implementation, and operation.

Objectives

At the end of this seminar, you will learn to:

  • Understand the fundamentals of alarm management and alarm philosophy
  • Apply procedures for alarm rationalization
  • Apply procedures for alarm design, implementation, operation and maintenance
  • Apply procedures for alarm performance monitoring and assessment
  • Implement alarm management procedures using hands-on tools

Training Methodology

This seminar has been designed for both novice and experienced engineers, operators, and technicians. The training methodology is a combination of Instructor presentations and case studies. This is followed by a series of videos involving the main course topics. This is complemented by Instructor led hands-on practicals using tools for alarm rationalization, design, implementation, operation and maintenance, performance monitoring and assessment. Throughout the seminar, delegates will learn through active participation using the tools followed by review exercises and questionnaires of each major topic.

Organisational Impact

When delegates return to their place of work, organizations will benefit from the following:

  • Participants reviewed the most important concepts of alarm management principles and alarm philosophy
  • Participants learned how to apply procedures for alarm rationalization, design, implementation, operation and maintenance, performance monitoring and assessment
  • Participants got hands-on experience on implementing alarm management procedures using various tools

Personal Impact

When delegates return to their place of work, they will benefit from the following:

  • Participate in specialized training in alarm management complementing their knowledge on instrumentation and process control and safeguarding
  • Get in depth knowledge of using alarm management as a layer of protection
  • Become familiar with a variety of alarm management procedures
  • Participate in hands-on practicals, drills and workshops
  • Network with fellow delegates
