Description

PELLET logo

This course is organized by the Wood Pellet Association of Canada's Safety Committee in cooperation with WorkSafeBC and BC Forest Safety Council. WPAC and WorkSafeBC have agreed that the wood pellet industry should work toward implementing Process Safety Management (PSM).

Process Hazard Analysis (PHA) is the foundation of PSM. PHA is intended to obtain the information necessary to make operating decisions that will manage the risk, and improve the safety, of industrial operations such as wood pellet manufacturing. PHA focuses on identifying the potential causes, likelihood and consequences of process accidents by combining the experience, knowledge and intuitive imaginations of expert team members using a selected analytical methodology.
