This online course examines the causes and prevention of flare system incidents. It comprehensively reviews the operations and equipment used on all types of offshore and onshore flare systems. It categorises the key hazards which must be controlled and reviews in detail the five most common hazards associated with flare system incidents.

The course draws upon past industry accidents and incidents, as well as errors in design, only revealed in operation. You will gain an understanding of the key design, operation, maintenance and plant modification aspects which must be controlled to ensure safe flare system operation.

The modules can be undertaken as stand-alone training sessions but are most effective as part of a modular programme.
