Reduce your risk!

The Chemical and Allied Industries’ Association (CAIA) will host an updated Process Safety Management (PSM) course – Risk-based Process Safety Management (RBPSM) – as part of its Responsible Care initiative.

Internationally accepted as an industry requirement by the chemical industry, the Association is now offering the RBPSM course to the South African industry. The next course takes place in Johannesburg on 25 and 26 April.

The course is geared to improving sustainable safety performance in industries that manufacture, consume or handle chemicals; by focusing on new ways to design, correct or improve process safety management practices. It also has industry-wide benefits, as it encourages a better perception of the chemical industry by non-industry members.

The RBPSM course is integrated with safety, health and environment (SHE) management systems. It takes a risk-based approach to reducing or eliminating harm, including damage to plant, material, the environment and people. The course is vital for those involved in designing, implementing and maintaining a successful process safety management.

This recently revised two-day training course focuses on what risk-based process safety management is and how to implement such a system within chemical manufacturing facilities. The training is aligned with the Responsible Care Process Safety Management Practice Standard and is a mandatory component of the Responsible Care Third Party verification audit. Signatories are expected to implement appropriate process safety management within their facilities in such a way that process hazards are identified, understood and controlled, so that process-related injuries and incidents are prevented.

The two-day course costs R2 300 (excluding VAT) and will be held in Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town. To book, email
