On-demand Webinar: Mitigating Fire & Explosion Risk from Process Diversification

45 mins

We all know that business diversification allows companies to grow and remain sustainable. However, when that diversification involves moving to new processes handling dangerous substances, there are a range of potential health and safety issues that need tackling. Examples include the water industry diversifying into biogas production; the growth in the hydrogen economy for power generation; capturing released carbon dioxide etc.

Sigma-HSE’s Technical & Operations Director will discuss some of the potential health and safety pitfalls to be aware of in this on-demand webinar. Essentially, the discussion will focus on the changes necessary from an occupational health and safety management system to a process safety management system and will cover issues around process safety culture; process safety leadership; understanding what can go wrong; risk assessments; managing risk and corporate learning.

What you’ll learn:

  • Understanding how culture is a key factor in mitigating risk and how a top-down approach should be undertaken
  • How to better understand hazards and how to be more ‘risk focused’
  • Understanding management of change and its relationship to process safety

This webinar is best for:

  • HSE Directors and/or managers
  • Process and HSE Professionals
  • Project Managers and Risk Assessors
