The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and NEBOSH have collaborated to develop a new specialist Occupational Safety and Health Qualification specifically for process industries. The qualification combines the advanced technical 'high hazard' expertise of HSE with NEBOSH's ability to deliver strong vocational OSH qualifications.

The course focuses on the prevention of catastrophic accidents and near misses associated with loss of containment of energy or dangerous substances such as chemicals and hydrocarbons.

The course will cover:

  • Establishment of process management systems
  • Asset management and maintenance strategies
  • Start-up and shutdown of process plant
  • Performance standards for safety critical systems and equipmentHSE NEBOSH Accredited Centre 1086
  • Hazards and controls for:
    • Chemical reactions
    • Bulk storage of dangerous substances
    • Fire and explosion
  • Purpose and features of emergency plans

The tutors have a wide range of process safety experience gained through HSE's activities in the onshore chemicals and offshore oil & gas industries.

Candidates are assessed by a 90 minute multiple choice examination which must be accessed and completed via NEBOSH's Online Assessment Platform within a 24-hour window. The date is set by NEBOSH and will be within 4 weeks of you attending the course.
