Customer Challenges

Any personnel involved in the safety lifecycle activities are required to be proven competent for the roles they fill. Plant operators and technicians need to equip themselves with the necessary knowledge to perform their functions.

Our Solutions

Yokogawa provides a broad range of Instructor led (certified) training courses to help customers enhance their knowledge and awareness of safety systems during different phases of project execution, as well as provide competency to control the process in a safe environment.

Yokogawa TÜV Rheinland Functional Safety courses are specifically designed to provide the necessary level of understanding of functional safety to plant design and plant operations to help them carry out their du¬ties. At the end of the course they will have a sound understanding of safe practices as well as a clear understanding of how their actions affect process safety.

Our courses are designed to provide an understanding of the real-world challenges safety engineers and operators face in the industry and provides formal recognition of their achievement upon passing an assessment. Certification workshops can be held at an organisation’s premises or in an off-site training facility.

In order to achieve and maintain above industry standards our trainers are highly qualified in their subject area and possess formal qualifications in addition to Training and Assessment standards.
