NEBOSH HSE Certificate in Process Safety Management

NEBOSH and the Health and Safety Executive have developed a specialist qualification for people who need to understand and apply technical principles of process safety management as part of their role. It provides delegates with the knowledge and understanding of process safety management to ensure they can contribute to the effective management of process safety risks on site

The NEBOSH qualification builds on the understanding already gained by studying the NEBOSH or International General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety, although these are not prerequisites to the course.

The course follows the NEBOSH curriculum (details listed below) and includes additional, sector specific content, relating to good practice within Process Safety Management.

The value-added content includes:

  • Human factors management
  • Process hazards that are toxic to humans or the environment
  • Process safety culture
  • Regulations relevant to process safety
  • Risk assessment tools

It is a 5 day course which is delivered via face to face using interactive workshops and real life examples and case studies. The course will be delivered by Cogent approved trainers who have been approved by NEBOSH. Delegates will be assessed with a 90 minute multiple choice exam on the final day of training and certificates will be provided by NEBOSH. Courses can be delivered at your site or at an appropriate venue.

NEBOSH qualifications are classed as Vocationally-Related Qualification (VRQ’s) in England, Wales and Norther Ireland, and are based on recognised international best practice.
