Pressure Equipment Safety Legislation Seminar for Engineering and EPC Companies (1 day) Upon Request Only

This seminar will present an introduction to ABSA and the other organizations involved in the regulation of pressure equipment safety in Alberta , with reference to the applicable Act and regulations. The requirements of the adopted codes, standards and bodies of rules will be discussed.

Emphasis will be on the design registration requirements for pressure equipment of the type that the company is involved with (e.g. pressure piping, boilers, pressure vessels, repairs) and areas where problems occur. Time will be spent reviewing the various documents that must be submitted for design registration and on completion of the piping job.

Where pressure piping design and installation are concerned, overpressure protection requirements in both power plants and pressure plants will be addressed, as will pressure testing requirements. Reference will be made to the inspections that ABSA is mandated to perform during the construction of a plant or other pressure equipment and that a construction project must allow for.

ABSA is prepared to deliver customized versions of this seminar to engineering and EPC companies upon request. Depending on the response from engineering and EPC companies, this seminar may be scheduled as a public seminar in the future.

In-House and Customized Training

ABSA may also present private (in-house) sessions of our seminars upon request*. In-house seminars reduce the cost of sending multiple employees to one of our public locations for a seminar.We offer private sessions of our standard seminars as well as customized training seminars..

We have presented standard and customized seminars across Canada and internationally and we will continue to attempt to offer customized training in areas identified by stakeholders. In the future we will conduct industry training surveys and look forward to hearing of any training needs that industry members may have.

*Please note that due to the increased demand for our private seminars, seminars will be scheduled upon the availability of our instructors.
