Contain It Perth

Preventing the loss of containment

The “Contain It” course is an interactive and practical training course for energy and resources personnel in WA to experience the first-hand effects of hydrocarbon releases in a safe and controlled environment. The aim of this course is to increase awareness of the process safety hazards within Major Hazardous Facilities. Training will provide an overview of major accidents, the mechanisms and impacts of process safety releases; and an individual’s role in preventing major accidents.

An understanding of major accident hazards is essential for everyone working in hazardous workplaces to embed learning. Although many companies conduct process safety awareness training in the classroom or on-line, very few people have experienced a physical loss of containment scenario.
