Best Practices Workshop: PSM and ORM Overview

DuPont Best Practices Overview: Process Safety Course

This workshop delivers an introduction to Process Safety Management (PSM) and Operational Risk Management (ORM). It is the first of 11 Best Practices Workshops on PSM offered by DuPont Sustainable Solutions (DSS).

The PSM and ORM Overview Best Practices Workshop will help participants understand how world-class organizations manage their process safety and operational risk through standards, procedures, programs, audits and evaluations. This process safety course and all our Best Practices Workshops are designed to help your organization envision and specify future improvements, while building the workforce and management skills needed to implement your PSM program with optimal results.

A robust PSM system helps prevent process-related injuries and incidents. This requires a sustained effort by leadership at all levels. This Overview workshop covers the application of Process Safety Management systems and controls to a manufacturing process so that organizations can identify, understand and control hazards.

This process safety course also covers Operational Risk Management processes that allow organizations to assess operational risk and improve decision-making and implementation of controls in order to reduce risk. These processes help manage the risk of loss resulting from inadequate or failed internal processes and systems, human factors, or external events.

Who should attend: senior executives and operations managers, including CEOs, COOs, safety executives, plant or facility and operating unit managers, and site safety managers.

  • Promoting Safety in Production Processes

    The management of process safety and operational risk is a great opportunity for companies to predict and control the risks in their operations and production processes. Many CEO's have said that what keeps them awake at night is the possibility of a "serious incident" that could bring down a company. Srinivasan Ramabhadran, Global Leader of Process Safety Management and Operational Risks, speaks to Vias Expeciales about this topic.
