Protecting Value and Managing Risk through Learning and Development
The DuPont systematic learning approach, when combined with strong managing systems and operational discipline, helps companies protect value and prevent potential major process related incidents. Our experts work as coaches to assess the specific learning and development needs of your organization, design a tailored curriculum using blended learning tools, develop a pool of talent for process management, and identify metrics to evaluate effectiveness of the learning program.
Our process safety management training online courses and instructor-led workshops can help mitigate the risk of catastrophic failure by building awareness and developing skill-level capability around process safety. The courses are available as part of our process safety management integrated solutions or as stand-alone, off-the-shelf products.
Key factors such as an aging workforce, a retirement boom in developed markets, a lack of skilled workers in emerging markets and an increasing reliance on contractors have contributed to a significant increase in operational risks. While most companies understand the need for a robust learning and development program to build organizational capability and mitigate these risks, many lack a well-defined method for transferring knowledge and developing the required skills.
At heart, process safety management is about recognizing hazards and the associated risks. As such, it is critical that companies develop a risk matrix appropriate to the nature of risks, and then build awareness across the organization through structured on-the-job learning. This is best done using practical tools and examples that employees can relate to on a day-to-day basis, while concurrently developing a thorough understanding of hazards, equipment and process design. Process safety principles and systems not only help manage risks. They can effectively increase the safety of your operation while also improving productivity, cost efficiency and quality.
Based on over 30 years of experience of managing hazardous substances in our own facilities, our expert consultants have a thorough understanding of the means through which a process safety management system can be built, and sustained. Furthermore, our work with clients across a range of industries – from petrochemicals and fertilizers to mining and metals processing – has demonstrated the depth and adaptability of our solutions.
Based on this vast operational experience, we have refined our models and methodologies in ways that can be replicated, put into practice, tested and fine-tuned for almost any situation or industry. Our approach to managing operational risk and preventing process-related injuries and incidents addresses both the cultural and technical aspects of your organization.
Our experts have a proven ability to customize solutions to help your company prevent major process-related disaster incidents, while also preserving business continuity, capitalization, right to operation, and – most importantly – to protect precious lives.
