ABOUT THIS COURSE
NEBOSH has joined forces with Great Britains Health and Safety Regulator, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) to develop a new process safety management qualification specifically for process industries. Process safety management is a blend of engineering and management skills. It focuses on the prevention of catastrophic accidents and near misses associated with loss of containment of energy or dangerous substances such as chemicals and hydrocarbons.
WHO IS THIS FOR?
People from all around the world who work in process industries such as oil and gas, chemicals, plastics and pharmaceuticals. Given the hazardous nature of these industries, this qualifications has been designed to give process safety knowledge and understanding to managers, supervisors and safety professionals to allow them to manage their process safety responsibilities.
This qualification is not designed for process safety/chemical engineers with extensive operational experience of working within the processing environment. It is advised that learners should already
have an underpinning knowledge of health and safety, and many will hold another NEBOSH qualification.
Knowledge – The NEBOSH HSE Certificate in Process Safety Management is designed to provide a
sound breadth of knowledge that will allow you to contribute to the effective management of process safety risks.
Recognition – This qualification is the result of a unique collaboration which combines the advanced technical ‘high hazard’ expertise of the HSE with NEBOSH’s ability to deliver strong.vocational OSH qualifications. HSE has led the way in risk-based regulation, underpinned by the fundamental principle of UK health and safety law – those who create risks are best placed to control them and should do so in a proportionate and practical way.
Career development – Gaining specialist knowledge of environmental management will give you an extra set of skills that could help bring success and advancement to your career.
