Who is the course for?
This eLearning course is aimed at individuals in the oil and gas industry who are required to work with piping systems.
Is previous experience required?
It is expected that as a participant in this course you will have received formal training in your designated role and that you hold suitable qualifications.
How will the course benefit me?
Unacceptable levels of vibration can cause damage to piping and equipment and, in the worst case scenario, loss of containment, which can be a major safety and environmental hazard. This course will identify the types of vibration to which piping systems may be exposed and how vibration can be managed.
The knowledge gained in this course will help you to identify vibration risks in piping systems before an incident occurs. You will also learn about how vibration is taken into account during the plant design phase.
How will the course benefit my company?
By ensuring that piping systems are not exposed to excessive vibration, you contribute to the safety of the asset, your fellow workers and yourself. This will reduce the risk of loss of containment and help make your worksite a safer place.
What standards are referenced in the course?
This course does not refer to specific legislation or laws but is written to current HSE guidelines, industry best practice and standard operating procedures.
Is there an assessment?
Once you have completed the course, you will be asked a series of questions to check your knowledge and understanding. These are based on the learning objectives for the course and have a pass mark of 80%.
