Hazards of Water

Hazards of Water


£149.00 price excludes VAT

Every year we see incidents related to water. Incidents such as operators being burned by high temperature water, fires being started from static water flows, and foam-overs occurring in tankage due to the presence of water. This course will help operators learn how to guard against water in feed tanks, in new suction line-ups and in units during start-ups.

Learning outcomes

By the end of this course, you will understand:

  • how water is used within process engineering
  • the potential threats and the possible causes
  • how to recognise the warning signs associated with water use, before accidents occur

Who is it for?

Process engineers, operators, supervisors, maintenance engineers and design engineers.

What do you get?

  • downloads of all modules (usually an hour each)
  • most modules have a FAQ section at the end 
  • digital copies of slides and supporting materials (PDF) 
  • e-certificate of attendance, including hours allocation for CPD purposes (on request)
