It is far too often that accidents in Oil and Gas organisations and other major process industry organisations have occurred with loss of life, catastrophic damage to the environment, asset losses and business disruptions. Accidents like the Texas City Refinery and the Deepwater Horizon have occurred and will continue to occur if the control process is insufficient or ineffective. The process industry (including the Oil Gas and Chemical Industry) requires a high level of expertise for control of hazards.

The National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health (NEBOSH), in collaboration with the UK’s Health and Safety Regulator, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) developed brand new professional qualification “NEBOSH HSE Certificate in Process Safety Management“  specifically for process industries.
