Why Choose this Training Course?

If you think Safety is expensive then try an accident. Process incidents create such horrific losses in terms of human life (something that is irreplaceable) and damage to the environment and plant equipment. The disasters at Feyzin in France, Flixborough in England, Seveso in Italy and at Phillips Petroleum in Pasadena, Texas brought to the forefront the need to control industrial activities within a stricter regime. In Europe the resultant controls are through the Seveso III Directive whilst in the USA this is through OSHA’s Process Safety Management CFR 1910.119. The objective of such legislation is the prevention of major-accidents, protection of life, property and the environment.

Process Safety Management requires a high level of expertise for control of hazards. The key provision of Process Safety Management is a careful review of what could go wrong and what safeguards must be implemented to prevent, releases of hazardous chemicals, fires and explosions.
