The course presents fundamental principle of safety and risk assessment in petroleum engineering. In particular, it emphasizes on safety legislations, inherent safety design concept, methods of hazard identification, chemical health risk assessment and various methods of risk assessments. The course also covers health and environment issues related to petroleum engineering. At the end of this course, it is expected that the students will be able to appreciate the theoretical and practical aspects of occupational safety and health in petroleum engineering. Students should also be able to use the techniques of hazard identification and risk assessment in the design and operation of petroleum engineering projects.
