Process Safety Management for Operations – License to Train
For Operators, Maintenance Technicians, Long Term Contractors
The PSMO Licence to Train will give you and your business the tools and techniques to deliver in-house process safety training to the industry standard* for your operators, maintenance technicians and long term contractors.
Before starting the PSM training, the companies focus was on the shift from personal safety to process safety. Following the training we have improved our process safety culture and performance through enhancing personal safety with process safety. Cogent played a central role throughout, and the fact the programme is developed by peer companies is very valuable. The participants noted it was the most relevant training they had ever been on.

Prepare for your first in-house course and incorporate your own materials to contextualise the training, to reflect your own major accident hazards and process safety management systems.
Set the date for your in-house courses, register your delegates and order their course handbooks. Your new Licensed Trainers will be assessed through observation when they first deliver PSMO in the workplace.
PSMO can be delivered as an intensive two-day course or in modules over a 3-6 month period. The choice is yours.
Employees will complete the online assessment for each module. All employees successfully completing the course and assessment will receive formal recognition with a PSMO course certificate
The Process Safety Management for Operations course provided me with a further in-depth overall knowledge of safety and will allow me to deliver back on site to suit it to our needs

I found the shared experiences between the trainer and the group to apply the learning really useful and we hope to see benefits in the application of training back into the business
