Hazard identification is focused on chemical and physical refinery hazards. An introduction to the various consequences of unidentified or uncontrolled hazards is also provided, including how to quantify and evaluate risk, to demonstrate how methodology like consequence analysis and modeling, and quantitative risk assessment (QRA) can lead to better decision making.

Concepts and principles are put into practice using an interactive scenario exercise to wrap up the course. While many refinery hazards or oil & gas safety courses focus on hazards identification and safe work practice implementation, this course stands out by helping the learner understand the basics to more effectively mitigate and manage refinery risks.
