Process safety management

Employers are required by law to meet certain requirements in order to minimise the risk of major incidents from hazardous materials.

Process safety plays an essential role in preventing structural collapse, fires, explosions and incidents with petroleum products, dangerous chemicals, toxic releases and releases to the environment. Process safety management is a blend of both management and engineering skills used to prevent, control and mitigate the potential effects of high consequence events.

Process safety management is particularly important due to the complex nature of major hazard establishments. With this complexity comes the need for specialised skills over and above those needed to manage day to day occupational health and safety issues. Highly hazardous chemicals and explosive substances pose a particularly serious risk to not just employees, business premises and equipment but also potentially to members of the public and the wider environment. It is necessary for employers to consider these external groups when planning process safety management procedures. As such it is critical that employers utilise effective process safety management to ensure risks and any potential consequences are minimised.
