Risk Based Process Safety Management

Many organizations across all industries are concerned with why safety incidents of varying severities continue to occur. The more pressing concern is what can be done about them. This workshop is intended to help organization managers and HSE leaders to identify and mitigate potential high consequence vulnerabilities to reduce the site’s risk profile, by using HAZOP, management of Change, Incident Investigations, and other frameworks included in the Process Safety Management regulations. This 3-day masterclass provides an in-depth study of the most significant Process Safety Management (PSM) elements. It is intended to help Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) leaders to identify and mitigate potential high consequence vulnerabilities to reduce the site’s risk profile using the structured framework of the Process Safety Management Regulation. Group exercises are designed to take advantage of group think and brainstorming, to help develop solutions and techniques that participants can take back home to solve some of their current challenges.
