Alarm Management System Course


Are you being challenged to provide evidence of alarm management?
Has the safety or performance of your alarm systems been questioned?
Do you know if your operators are burdened with too many alarms and how this might be improved?
Could you miss key safety or environmental alarms during an incident?
