Major Hazards Management

Major Hazards Management


We seek to advance the understanding and application of major hazards management techniques to contribute worldwide for the benefit of society. We aim to be an acknowledged leader and influencer among professional institutions and beyond, recognised for enhancing and promoting process safety and risk management practices and skills.

We will deliver this by focusing on three areas:

  1. People - developing full lifecycle professional and technical competence, and leadership skills for both institution members and across relevant areas of industry, education and society in response to the challenges of today and into the future.
  2. Practices - establishing and applying tools and good practices for major hazards management, and promoting sharing and learning, to drive continual improvement.
  3. Emerging challenges - supporting members, industry and society in responding to current and emerging safety challenges for a sustainable future from the evolving technological and industrial landscape by adapting and developing knowledge, skills and tools.

Why is this important?

Management of major hazards has always been at the core of chemical engineering for both industrial activities and professional requirements. Although industry is evolving and new technologies are emerging, the fundamental principles of managing risk, and learning and improving, are enduring.
