Our flagship process safety course has been revised and updated for 2016. The content includes new case studies, latest information and current best practice. The course is structured around the framework of the IChemE Safety Centre: knowledge and competence, engineering and design, systems and procedures, assurance, human factors and culture. It is essential for anyone who is involved in the design, modification, operation and maintenance of a major hazard or process plant.

Revised and new topics:

  • project development
  • technical risk assessment
  • occupied buildings risk assessment
  • environmental risk assessment
  • asset integrity
  • flammable atmospheres
  • leadership and culture
  • process safety performance
  • emergency response


Process safety incidents constantly highlight the importance of having a clear understanding of the principles of process safety management throughout an organisation. This must include staff at all levels from board members through engineers and other technical staff to plant and shift managers and supervisors. This intensive course covers the fundamentals and aims to provide an understanding of the key principles of process safety and its management.
