NEBOSH HSE Certificate in Process Safety Management courses are now offered by BSS Middle East in association with the NEBOSH-accredited course provider British Safety Services.


A new programme, the HSE Certificate in Process Safety Management has been implemented by NEBOSH together with the UK’s Health and Safety Regulator, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).

This qualification is designed to equip delegates with a broad understanding of the accepted principles and recognised industrial practices for the management of process risk. This will ensure that they can recognise and contribute to the control of process safety hazards.

What kind of people should take the NEBOSH HSE Certificate in Process Safety Management?

People from all around the world who work in process industries such as oil and gas, chemicals, plastics and pharmaceuticals. Given the hazardous nature of these industries, this qualification has been designed to give process safety knowledge and understanding to managers, supervisors and safety professionals to allow them to manage their process safety responsibilities.

This qualification is not designed for process safety/chemical engineers with extensive operational experience of working within the processing environment.

It is advised that delegates should already have an underpinning knowledge of health and safety issues, and many will have gained another NEBOSH Qualification

What will you gain from this qualification?

Knowledge – The NEBOSH HSE Certificate in Process Safety Management is designed to provide a sound breadth of knowledge that will allow you to contribute to the effective management of process safety risks.

Recognition – This qualification is the result of a unique collaboration which combines the advanced technical ‘high hazard’ expertise of the HSE with NEBOSH’s ability to deliver strong vocational OSH qualifications. HSE has led the way in risk-based regulation, underpinned by the fundamental principle of UK health and safety law – those who create risks are best placed to control them and should do so in a proportionate and practical way.

Career Prospects – Process Safety Management is of vital importance in hazardous process industries such as oil and gas, chemicals, plastics and pharmaceuticals. Holding a qualification designed and assessed by NEBOSH and the HSE can help you stand out.
