Course Description:

Culture underpins everything in a PSM program.  The process safety culture sets the tone for everything else that happens in the program. Without a sound culture, the process safety management systems cannot be  successfully implemented  no  matter  how  well they are written. A sound process safety culture begins with a commitment by senior company and site management to understand and improve their process safety culture, what contributes to it, and the positive and negatives signs that it exhibits in practice. Senior management has the ultimate responsibility for the culture at any industrial facility and this responsibility cannot be delegated. Management sets the proper philosophical tone for the process safety culture.

The training provides instruction in the core principles of process safety culture, how they affect each element of a PSM/RBPS program, the effects of leadership on the culture, culture and ethics, culture and compensation, how to assess  process  safety culture, and how to improve it.
