Alarm Systems Management is a concise one-day training course aimed at helping prevent accidents similar to the explosion and fires at the Milford Haven refinery in the UK in 1994. This serious incident injured twenty six people, caused damage of the order of €50 million and resulted in the loss of a large amount of production.
The tuition sessions provide simple and practical guidance on how to recognise and deal with typical human-factor problems involving alarm systems. Its scope covers many sectors, including the energy, process, transport and utilities industries.
The tuition is aligned with EEMUA 191, the globally accepted and leading guide to good practice for all aspects of alarm systems, issued by the EEMUA (Engineering Equipment and Materials Users Association). This publication, developed by users of alarm systems with input from the HSE, gives comprehensive guidance on design, management and procurement.
Participants can purchase a copy of the book recommended by the HSE – “Alarm Systems, A Guide to Design, Management and Procurement, EEMUA Publication No. 191” from the EEMUA shop here >>
