About the course

Process safety management (PSM) program requires a systematic approach to evaluate the whole chemical process. Process design, process technology, process changes, operational and maintenance activities and procedures, non-routine activities and operations, emergency preparedness plans and strategies, training programs, and other elements that affect the process are all considered in the evaluation. 

Process Safety Management (PSM) training program is vital for preventing incidents related to highly hazardous chemicals. The primary purpose of PSM is to prevent the unwanted release of dangerous chemicals, especially into locations that could expose employees and others to severe hazards. PSM helps an organisation achieve its obligations to fulfill legal requirements and Operational Control requirements of ISO 45001:2018.
