Book Event


Significant resources are invested in the daily management, control and mitigation of risks in the chemical and process industries. However, significant benefits and efficiency can be achieved by promoting, understanding and creating a more inherently safer working environment for new and existing facilities.

This new course from IChemE provides a greater understanding of inherent safety including the main principles, tools and measures for a safer, efficient and more profitable plant and operations.

Learning outcomes

By the end of the course delegates will:

  • recognise avoiding or reducing hazards is inherently safer than controlling them
  • identify the principles of inherent safety
  • have skills to promote an inherent safety message throughout organisations
  • be able to measure inherent safety
  • understand inherent safety is not absolute

Who will benefit

  • staff responsible for design, commissioning, decommissioning, construction and installation of plant
  • plant/process operators including maintenance functions
  • process safety engineers and loss prevention specialists
  • environmental engineers
  • chemical engineers working towards Chartered status 
  • those working towards the Professional Process Safety Engineers status

Course outline

  • what is inherent safety
  • principles and applications of inherent safety
  • inherently safer design process
  • tools for inherent safety evaluation
  • benefits of inherent safer design
  • resolving inherent safety issues
