We do this to fill knowledge and skills gaps in your organization and to bring you the benefit of our decades of experience quickly and efficiently. We have worked in industries as diverse as pharmaceuticals, bulk chemicals, foods, and metals, developing competency and providing reassurance. We can even help you identify gaps in knowledge, skills and experience in your organization through our organizational competency assessment program.
Whether your organization requires an in-depth technical course or simply operator awareness, standard courses or a customized training package, we offer flexible training programs to meet every need. We also run open courses for which you may register here.
We offer 3 levels of training courses: Introductory level – a short duration (1 – 3 hours) overview session designed to provide basic understanding of identified hazards and mitigating/control measures Core Competency – a more in-depth focus designed to provide a wider appreciation of the topic – starting from the basics to understanding the hazards and control measures designed to mitigate the identified hazards. Advanced – designed for process safety professionals who want a more thorough understanding of the subject and an ability to take decisions and implement risk control measures independently.
We also offer virtual process safety training courses such as Exploding dusts, Explosions, Static Electricity and HAC (Hazardous Area Classification). Find out more here.

Dust Explosion Hazards – These courses discuss and illustrate how dust explosion hazards arise and the practical techniques available for both preventing dust explosions and protecting people and facilities from their effects. Hazardous Area Classification – These courses explain how plants and facilities that handle or process flammable materials (powders, gases and vapors) are classified into divisions/zones and how those divisions/zones are used to specify electrical equipment in a facility. Fire and Explosion Hazards – These courses show how flash fire and explosion hazards arise in manufacturing processes, how they can be systematically identified and assessed and how the most appropriate basis of safety can be selected and implemented. Process Hazard Analysis – These courses explain the systematic approach to the assessment of hazards of an industrial operation or process. Covered are the standardized techniques such as HAZOP, Checklist, What-if and others, designed to identify causes and prevent fires, explosions and toxic releases. Developing organizational process safety competency – Most organizations rely on the knowledge, skills and experience of their staff to deliver their desired process safety outcomes.
