NEBOSH Logo
NEBOSH has joined forces with Great Britain’s Health and Safety Regulator, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), to develop the NEBOSH HSE Certificate in Process Safety Management.

This process safety management qualification is the result of the unique collaboration which combines the advanced technical ‘high hazard’ expertise of HSE with NEBOSH’s ability to deliver strong vocational OSH qualifications.  

This qualification is designed to equip delegates with a broad understanding of the accepted principles and recognised industrial practices for the management of process risk. This will ensure that they can recognise and contribute to the control of process safety hazards.

Our qualifications are developed based on extensive research with health and safety professionals, employers, professional bodies and regulators to ensure they are relevant and rigorous as well as achievable and practical.

  • This is a 04-day (32hr) learning event.
  • Start/Finish Times: 09:00am – 17:00pm (each day).
  • Pre-requisite:

    The NEBOSH HSE Certificate in Process Safety Management is a technical qualification. There are no specific entry requirements but the course does assume a certain level of knowledge.

    Health and Safety Knowledge
    This course assumes those taking the course will have a good understanding of general health and safety. It is therefore highly recommended that students hold the NEBOSH International General Certificate or equivalent before studying the NEBOSH HSE Certificate in Process Safety Management.

The NEBOSH HSE Certificate in Process Safety Management qualification consists of one Unit which must be completed to gain the qualification:
 
Unit PSM1: Process Safety Management
 
Comprises four elements:
  • Process Safety Leadership
  • Management of Process Risk
  • Process Safety Hazard Control
  • Fire Protection and Emergency Response
With topics including:
  • Establishment of process management systems
  • Asset management and maintenance strategies
  • Safe start-up and shutdown of process plant
  • Performance standards for safety critical systems and equipment
  • Hazards and controls for:
    • Chemical reactions
    • Bulk storage of dangerous substances
    • Fire and explosion
  • Purpose and features of emergency plans

This course is fully recognised by NEBOSH (LP 907).

 

Students are assessed by a 90 minute, 40 question multiple choice examination. There is no practical element to this qualification.

You will receive your results within 15 working days of sitting the examination. Once you have achieved a pass a qualification parchment will be issued.  This is normally within 20 working days of the confirmation of the successful unit.

People from all around the world who work in process industries such as oil and gas, chemicals, plastics and pharmaceuticals.

Ideal for managers, safety representatives and health and safety advisors working within the process industries, both inside and outside the UK. 

It is not designed for chemical and process safety engineers experienced in the specification, design and maintenance of process plant. 

It is recommended that learners should already have an underpinning knowledge of health and safety issues, and many will have gained another NEBOSH qualification.
