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 company’s 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 Skills 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.

Identify the personnel in your business with the relevant process safety knowledge and training experience to deliver PSMO in-house to your employees.
Send your identified trainer(s) on our comprehensive two day Train the Trainer course to equip them with a thorough understanding of the PSMO training standard requirements and the course materials.
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.
On completing the course participants will understand:
> The business case for effective process safety management
> The hazards, risks and consequences associated with hazardous substances and processes
> The hazards, consequences and safeguards in the specific process or plant you operate or maintain
> How to keep the process safe – the role of operations (Operator & Maintenance) in ensuring effective process safety
> Emergency planning and the need for effective measures to limit the consequences of process incidents
> The role of operations in applying learning from incidents and near misses
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
