Process Safety Management

Key factors such as an aging workforce, a retirement boom in developed markets, a lack of skilled workers, and an increasing reliance on contractors have contributed to a significant increase in operational risks. While most companies understand the need for a robust learning and development program to mitigate these risks, many lack a well-defined method for transferring knowledge and developing the required skills. Process Safety Management (PSM) training through our partner DuPont Sustainable Solutions (DSS) helps companies move beyond simple training, creating a learning experience that maximizes knowledge acquisition and retention.


The PSM curriculum includes an e-learning series, which, when combined with on-the-job coaching, practical application and performance management, can develop the skills your employees need to operate efficiently and avoid process-related hazards. For each module, basic awareness level training is delivered via e-learning. The curriculum can accelerate knowledge transfer and skills development to:

  • Help organizations overcome the loss of PSM know-how due to talent attrition from an aging workforce
  • Help build PSM capability among a new workforce who adaprts more easily to a virtual learning format consisting of e-learning
  • Mitigate the risk of potential catastrophic process safety incidents
  • PSM Governance
  • Recognizing Risk (Process Technology and Process Hazards Analysis)
  • Manage Operations (Standard Operating Procedures and Safe Work Practices)
  • Manage Maintenance (Mechanical Integrity and Quality Assurance)
  • Manage People (Management of Change – Personnel, Contractor Safety Management)
  • Manage Change (Management of Change – Technology and Facilities, Prestart-up Safety Review)
  • Manage Incidents (Incident Investigation)
  • Manage Emergencies (Emergency Response Planning)
  • Manage Compliance (PSM Audit)
  • Manage Continuous Improvement (Operational Discipline)

DuPont Sustainable Solutions can provide support across all PSM modules or selected modules as determined by your organization.

Additional services available from DSS include the creation of customized, sustainable process safety management standards and systems, the instilling and strengthening of an organization’s safety culture and operation discipline needed to achieve excellence, and the assessment and continuous improvement of PSM performance.
