About the Course

Process Safety Awareness has been developed to provide anyone on a high hazard site in a role which does not have direct line responsibility for Process Safety with a basic understanding of the principles of Process Safety and how they can have an impact on it.

It will allow participants to learn how to operate safely within the industry that they work and understand the important role they play in preventing incidents from occurring. As well as the basic principles and awareness of Process Safety, this course will cover the implications if an accident was to occur on site, using real examples and workshop activity. Ideal for administrators, office staff, marketing, HR and finance functions, apprentices and cleaners.

It will cover the basics of the industry standards set by the Process Safety Management Competence Programme Board PSMCPB* for which Cogent Skills is the delivery partner.
