Looking for a technical training course that provides the fundamentals necessary to design oxygen systems or components and analyze their fire risk? Look no further. Whether your application is a larger oxygen pipeline system, a smaller cylinder-fed system, or a single component, WHA’s Level 3: O2 Design course provides technical personnel the preeminent training experience on this topic.


WHA’s Level 3: O2 Design course includes all of the Level 2 foundational content on oxygen safety and good practices to minimize fire risk, then builds upon this foundation with more technical content for system engineers, designers, process specialists, and those responsible for managing the technical aspects of oxygen systems. The objective of this course is to train personnel on the critical aspects of oxygen system design including material compatibility, ignition mitigation, oxygen cleaning and clean specification, and fire risk reduction.

Students will be introduced to the Oxygen Fire Risk Analysis (OFRA) tool (based on industry standards from ASTM, CGA, EIGA, NFPA, SAE, and others) and learn how to evaluate oxygen hazards in components and systems, as well as perform system safety audits.


Because our O2 Design course is only offered onsite, you and your company will always receive a training experience that is custom-tailored for your systems and training needs. This course requires two full days of training, with an option to add a third day devoted to analyzing the hazards of a client’s specific system or applying the OFRA tool to various case studies.


The learning goal of this course is to explain the fundamental principles required to effectively design safe oxygen systems.




The student will understand the oxygen fire hazard and WHA’s risk management approach, specify compatible materials, and apply proven design methodologies and oxygen cleaning strategies that minimize ignition and fire risk. Students will also understand the OFRA tool used to identify oxygen hazards and analyze fire risk.


Technical personnel, including design engineers, process engineers, chemical and safety engineers, materials scientists, senior maintenance personnel, system supervisors, procedure writers, and others.


Cost for level 3 training is typically $1,000-$1,500 per person. Final cost depends on several factors such as format, number of courses, number of personnel to be trained, and any custom add-ons. Group discounts are available.
