Process Safety is about saving lives, avoiding injuries and protecting the environment. News bulletins remind us constantly that accidents occur all too often in industrial processes. The industries concerned range from small-scale fine chemical production to oil refining to food processing to processing agricultural waste products.
The problems can be summed up as the “big three”: fires, explosions and releases of toxic materials. Understanding the causes of such accidents is essential to avoiding them in the future.
Your role, if you accept it, is to do just that and to advise plant managers and designers
of industrial installations on how to avoid such accidents. As a Process Safety Engineer you will have a pivotal role in risk management. Following the online course is your first step on the road to getting there.
