Process Safety Competence Development

Competence development is the key to solid process safety

Process safety competency is what organizations are striving for to reduce or eliminate process-related accidents and disasters. The drive toward competence development is powered by regulators, industry associations and companies themselves because it correlates positively with process safety performance.

Process Safety Competency

We are at the forefront of the transformation from mere safety training to process safety competence development. We understand that every organization is unique, and we start by setting goals and reviewing proficiency levels specific to the customer. Once the gaps in knowledge are identified we set about filling them in ways that resonate with the company and its staff. We know that competence does not end with a certificate but is an ongoing process requiring verification and long-term reinforcement.

Our process safety competency development program is the result of over 30 years of experience working with the world’s major process businesses and is delivered by highly experienced process safety practitioners providing a high level of advice and experience-based answers to professional questions.
