In 2010, the Process Safety Management Competence Programme was launched in support of UK industry’s need to understand and manage major accident risks. Established to oversee this programme, industry, trade associations, stakeholders and the Health & Safety Executive came together to form the PSM Competence Programme Board and lead the development of the framework of Process Safety Management (PSM) training standards.
These training standards are designed to raise awareness and support improvements in process safety performance within organisations are managing hazards with the potential for major incidents.
These courses have been recognised by the Health and Safety Executive as making a major contribution to improving the levels of process safety awareness and knowledge that they expect to see in major hazard businesses.
Sitting within the framework of PSM training standards, the 2-day Hazard Management Foundations course is targeted at managers and supervisors responsible for the day-to-day management of operations in major accident hazard environments.
The HMF course covers the following key topics
- Understand the importance and key principles of hazard / process safety management.
- Understand how to identify hazards associated with hazardous substances and plant
- Understand how to assess the risks associated with hazardous substances and plant
- Understand the importance of identifying suitable safety critical equipment, implementing key risk control systems and the importance of sustaining their effectiveness
- Understand the need for effective measures to limit the consequences of a major accident
- Understand how to apply learning from incidents and near misses
- Understand how to monitor performance to achieve continual improvement in process safety performance
Since its development in 2012, Hazard Management Foundations has been delivered across the UK and internationally to circa 4,000 managers and supervisors from over 20 different industry sectors.
