An Overview

All Process Safety Management training courses have been approved by expert panels and meet the relevant awarding body or industry standard. Content has been developed by rigorously vetted, subject matter experts - who have benchmarked content to COMAH / SEVESO III competence and compliance requirements against:

Process Safety versus Occupational (Personal) Safety– what’s the difference?

Both could end in tragedy! A very basic explanation:

  • Occupational Safety. The hazards arise from the activity and the immediate work area. They are largely controlled by the individual (via work methods, and things like PPE). Occupational safety focusses on incidents which may impact the worker and those nearby.
  • Process Safety. Here, hazards are in the system – stored energy, toxic or flammable materials, high temperatures etc. – and systems are needed to control these from design, through operations and changes. Loss of control of these hazards can lead to significant or catastrophic events which have greater consequences to your people, assets and the environment.
