BakerRisk’s Learning Center offers a comprehensive collection of interactive opportunities to provide clients with the resources necessary to enhance their understanding and risk management skills. By leveraging the expertise of our industry-leading instructors, BakerRisk provides insight into some of the most cutting-edge approaches to hazard evaluation for an unparalleled learning experience.
This one-day course is intended to give participants an overview of the Lithium-ion battery components, primary failure modes of Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS), and their consequences and associated mitigation techniques.
This one-day course is intended to give participants an overview of risk management in the biofuels industry including biodiesel, ethanol, methanol, and biogas.
This four-day course will focus on the practical calculations of designing structures to withstand postulated blast load. This course will utilize the tools and analysis techniques developed by the Explosion Research Cooperative.
The focus of this one-day course will be on explaining elements of a sample real-life Crisis Emergency Response Plan. Practical tools and industrial examples will be presented.
The course provides exposure to a range of explosion types, with a focus on vapor cloud explosion (VCE) phenomena.
This two-day course focuses on the fundamentals of facility siting studies (FSS), quantitative risk assessments (QRA), and mitigation techniques. The primary objectives are to provide a thorough foundation and knowledge of the inputs, methodologies, and typical types of results for FSS and QRAs.
This one-day course focuses on the fundamentals of using fault trees to calculate frequencies and probabilities for different types of events. The topic includes areas of instrumentation failure, human failures, and creating logical models using binary (AND and OR) gates to form a fault tree of different components.
This one-day course focuses on the fundamentals of fire and gas detector mapping and layout. The objective of a fire and gas detector analysis is to provide a minimum number of flammable and toxic gas detectors, and flame and heat detectors to maximize detector coverage of unwanted releases or fires.
This combined course is intended to give participants a three-day overview of our FSS & QRA Training and Hazards Awareness Testing Demonstrations.
This one-day course focuses on the fundamentals of combustible dust hazards and associated mitigation techniques. In addition, the course will cover the current regulatory climate with regard to performing dust hazard assessments, as well as the legal ramifications of incurring a combustible dust-related incident.
This one-day course focuses on the fundamentals of Hazardous Area Classification (HAC), also known as Electrical Area Classification (EAC). The objective of a HAC analysis is to minimize uncontrolled ignition of flammable or combustible material in air by electrical equipment or hot surfaces, that could lead to fires or explosions resulting in possible equipment and property damage, as well as potential loss of life.
In this Hazards Awareness Course, you’ll learn about actual incidents that have shaped our industry, the lessons learned, and gain a basic understanding of the physics behind releases, vapor cloud explosions, and structural response. You will return to work with a new appreciation of how hazards can become incidents.
This one-day course will provide an overview of hydrogen production methods, transportation, and storage with a focus on key safety elements.
In this course, you will learn how to perform a scientifically rigorous incident investigation based on BakerRisk’s vast experience in this area across a broad spectrum of industries.
This three-day combined course is intended to give participants an overview of the Incident Investigation Training and Incident Scene Documentation and Evidence Collection course.
This one-day course focuses on properly documenting an incident scene, and collecting and preserving evidence, both physical and digital.
This one-day course focuses on managing fire protection resources including fixed equipment readiness, maintaining proper documentation, and typical roles/responsibilities within a Facility Management Structure.
This three-day course is intended to give participants an overview of the PHA / LOPA process by teaching techniques and tools to assist in guiding teams through the qualitative risk analysis process.
This one-day course will provide a high-level overview of potential hazards associated with high-pressure systems. Topics covered include applicable codes (ASME, UK HSE, etc.), general guidelines, recommended practices, best practices, recent developments, and examples of past incidents.
This course will focus not only on understanding hazards and risks but also on the linkage to the key risk control systems necessary for sustainable safe operation.
This two-day course focuses on leading the implementation of PSM gap analysis findings and corporate standards.
Mechanical breakdown, fire, explosion, and toxic dispersion are just a few of the consequences of potentially catastrophic failures in process operations, which, if unchecked, can escalate to multiple injuries and fatalities, property damage, business losses, and environmental impact.
Through significant investments in Research & Development, BakerRisk has discovered and implemented some truly remarkable hazard evaluation methods. We take pride in sharing these techniques with our clients through training courses and risk assessments.
“In the absence of established codes and standards, your papers in AIChE, AIDIC, and IChemE publications and US FEMA 453 have been a beacon of light for me personally.”

The Wilfred E. Baker Test Facility
Modeling hazards on a computer is one thing — but feeling the heat of a fire and the power of a vapor cloud explosion in person? That’s a whole different story. We’ve been diving into these incidents for decades, and now, thanks to our Wilfred E. Baker test facility, we’ve turned all that knowledge into practical solutions for our clients. Curious? See how in our brand new video!
While BakerRisk offers a range of pre-packaged courses, we recognize that the most effective courses incorporate your company’s specific hazards, incidents, and lessons learned. Please contact us to discuss how we can custom-tailor courses to fit your company’s needs, each of which can be delivered via face-to-face, distance, or blended (hybrid) learning methods. Your course may include:
Courses may be offered at your site or a BakerRisk location, depending on the course or your needs.
Utilize demonstrations to give a first-hand feel of hazards through simulations.
Case studies using real scenarios, including role play, so participants can apply their new training.
