The DSS Process Safety Management (PSM) Learning & Development Curriculum is a convenient, sustainable and cost-effective program that helps mitigate the risk of catastrophic failure by building awareness and developing skill-level capability around PSM.
The 12 instructor-led training courses review the 14 PSM elements and range from one to three-days in length. The series covers topics such as process technology, process hazard analysis, standard operating procedures and safe work practices, mechanical integrity and quality assurance, among others.
Who Should Attend
Attendees will vary based on the selected course. All courses require that attendees complete the initial three-day Process Safety Management overview. The target audience includes operations and maintenance managers; technical, operations, and maintenance engineers; frontline supervisors; and PSM element leaders and team members.
These courses provide a structured learning experience that has been tested in the field and is based on real-world experience from DSS, an acknowledged leader in PSM. In addition to working with numerous clients in a variety of industries, our operational experts have first-hand knowledge of managing process safety for more than 50 businesses within DSS.
The PSM instructor-led courses feature a problem-based learning approach that provides a collaborative job-focused experience to accelerate skill development. Based upon an organization’s needs, the solution can be delivered as individual modules or as a comprehensive curriculum.
The training sessions can be supplemented with field coaching by DSS consultants. In our experience, such facilitation has proven effective in building required skills and increasing retention rates among participants.
