Job title: Process Safety Lead
Company: Viva Energy

Previous experience

I have worked for ten years as a Chemical Engineer, of which I have spent six years working in Process Safety. I have worked at the Geelong Refinery for the majority of this time.

What prompted you to decide to become an Associate Member (Process Safety)

I was very lucky to be nominated by my organisation to be awarded one of the first Associate Memberships for process safety.

How useful do you think the qualification will be to your future career?

The qualification will be very useful in my future career in demonstrating my competency and skill sets, through an internationally-recognised accreditation with IChemE.

Would you recommend others to become Associate Member (Process Safety)?

I would definitely recommend that others work towards becoming Associate Member (Process Safety). It provides me with good guidance to ensure that I remain "on track" in developing both my technical and leadership competencies in process safety. Process safety is such a critical element that industry needs to get right and so it is fantastic that IChemE have developed a standardise set of competencies.

When will you begin working towards Professional Process Safety Engineer?

I will work towards becoming a Professional Process Safety Engineer in the next few years, as I continue to gain experience in my new role as Process Safety Lead in Refinery
