The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and NEBOSH have collaborated to develop a new specialist Occupational Safety and Health Qualification specifically for process industries. The qualification combines the advanced technical 'high hazard' expertise of HSE with NEBOSH's ability to deliver strong vocational OSH qualifications.

The course 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.

The course will cover:

• Establishment of process management systems

• Asset management and maintenance strategies

• Start-up and shutdown of process plant

• Performance standards for safety critical systems and equipment

• Hazards and controls for:

- Chemical reactions

- Bulk storage of dangerous substances

- Fire and explosion

• Purpose and features of emergency plans

The tutors have a wide range of process safety experience gained through HSE's activities in the onshore chemicals and offshore oil & gas industries.

Candidates are assessed by multiple choice examination including a case study based on real life scenarios.

Learning Outcomes:

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.

The qualification aims to provide holders with the knowledge and understanding of Process Safety Management to ensure that they can contribute to the effective management of process safety risks.
