This course covers general refinery operations and associated health, safety and environmental hazards, as well as OSHA regulations and industry standards.
This course offers information on how refineries operate, and what hazards are encountered by the workforce, as well as risks to outside communities and selected government and consensus standards.

The intended audiences are craft and safety personnel who play a safety role in an oil refinery or similar process plant and who want to improve their effectiveness through a deeper understanding of the principals behind plant safe work practices and operations.
