Process Safety Leadership for Senior Executives was launched in 2011, followed by Process Safety Management Foundations in 2012, for operational managers and supervisors, and Process Safety management for Operations in 2013 for front line operators and maintenance personnel.
The purpose of these Process Safety Training Standards is to provide a clear knowledge and understanding of the principles of process safety management across an organisation, and help organisations to develop and maintain a strong process safety culture.
The Process Safety Board continue to meet monthly with the aim of constantly building awareness and engaging new businesses and industry sectors; stakeholders support the independent quality assurance process for all course providers; and Board members have shared their vision through speaking at numerous industry events including three Process Safety Management Summits, in 2012, 2015 and 2018.
The initial goals have long been exceeded, and the programme has now successfully engaged 182 Upper and Lower-Tier COMAH sites and 115 non-COMAH sites, with >14,500 individuals trained – with around 1500 of these in Leadership roles.
Cogent Skills Training Standards have been developed to capture industry-wide, agreed common training requirements for a range of disciplines across the science industries. They consist of agreed learning outcomes and the assessment criteria.
