Herewith, we announce the forthcoming course

II-R04a RBI-PETRO
Risk Based Inspection - Petro

March 27 - 30, 2012
Rotterdam, Netherlands

Lecturers: Daniel BaloŇ°, Rik De Bosscher, Michael Renner

The course is open for students of the universities and employees of the companies participating in the project, as well as for the external participants.

The course elaborates on risk issues in petrochemical industries and explains principles of risk-based inspection.

In the end of the course students will know the answers to the following questions:

  • Why RBI analysis is used and what are benefits and limitations of various RBI technologies?
  • What are differences between qualitative and quantitative approaches to RBI methods?
  • What is the scope of equipment covered in RBI techniques?
  • How RBI provides input to minimum requirements for programs that meet RP 580?
  • What are future industry trends in RBI?

The course is dedicated to:

  • professionals who wish to deepen their knowledge in the field of risk based inspection
  • other professionals dealing with risk and safety in industry
