Summary

Learn the key principles of process safety and its management.

Process safety incidents constantly highlight the importance of having a clear understanding of the principles of process safety management throughout an organisation. This must include staff at all levels from board members through engineers and other technical staff to plant and shift managers and supervisors. 

This intensive course provides an understanding of the key principles of process safety and its management. Essential for anyone who is involved in the design, modification, operation and maintenance of a major hazard or process plant, The course references the management framework built on six functional areas or pillars developed by the IChemE Safety Centre.

The course functional pillars are:
-knowledge and competence
-engineering and design
-systems and procedures
-assurance
-human factors and culture.

Delivered in partnership with IChemE
