If pressurised equipment fails when in use, it can lead to serious injuries, damage to property and harm to the environment. As module one looked at the way pressure works as a whole, this module will focus on how to apply this knowledge of pressure safety to an industry environment. We will look at how pressure is contained, how the limits can be exceeded and how equipment can fail. You will learn about stored energy and why all pressure can be dangerous. We will also look at types of pressure control equipment and safety systems and learn how to minimise and control the risks when working with systems or equipment which contain fluid under pressure.
