As a compliance solution provider in the process industry for more than 50 years, we understand your needs. Unlike other companies that focus only on one aspect of compliance, our experience extends to the requirements of multiple agencies, including OSHA's stringent Process Safety Management (PSM) and ISO 14000.

OSHA's Process Safety Management (PSM) regulation specifies that companies must certify that employees have the required knowledge, skills, and abilities to safely carry out the duties and responsibilities as specified in their operating procedures.

As well, the ISO 14000 standard states that an organization must ensure that employees whose jobs could potentially have a significant environmental impact are competent. It must identify training needs, deliver training and awareness programs, and maintain training records.

Each standard requires extensive documentation of procedures, extensive training of personnel, comprehensive communication of important issues, and stringent management of change to assure that all employees have access to information and understand it sufficiently to do their jobs safely and efficiently. Our Process Safety e-Learning series includes:

  • Introduction to Process Safety in Operations
  • Hazards
  • Risk Management
  • Projects, Construction and Operations
  • Management of Change
  • Emergency Response and Incident Investigation
  • Audits and Key Performance Indicators
