NEBOSH and HSE launch new Process Safety Management Qualification
15 September 2017
NEBOSH and the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) have joined forces to develop a brand new qualification for the process industries – the NEBOSH HSE Certificate in Process Safety Management.
Designed for high hazard industries where process safety management is critically important. It applies principles and best practice to manage process risks, helping to protect people and valuable assets.
NEBOSH Chief Executive Teresa Budworth, said: “Collaborating with the HSE allowed us to combine our ability to deliver strong, credible vocational occupational safety and health qualifications with HSE’s industry-leading knowledge and expertise.
She continued: “We piloted the qualification which attracted delegates from global organisations operating in oil and gas, chemicals, utilities and manufacturing industries. We are delighted that ninety four per cent of those who took part would recommend the qualification to a colleague and their employer.”
Karen Russ, Science and Commercial Director, HSE concluded: “Working alongside NEBOSH on this qualification has been a pleasure and provides us with another opportunity to meet our mission. By combining our strengths, this qualification will help to significantly improve understanding and further reduce health and safety risks in the process industries worldwide.”
Members of NEBOSH’s team will be at Health & Safety North in Manchester from 10-11 October where delegates can find out more about the Certificate in Process Safety Management as well as NEBOSH’s suite of other qualifications. Find them on Stand N28.
