Overview

This Special Purpose Award in Process Safety provides an online accredited Level 7 qualification in Process Safety over 1 year for individuals who need to safely handle, store and use potentially hazardous materials and processes.

 

This programme targets employment roles in production/manufacturing, commissioning and operation roles within pharmaceutical/biotechnology/food & drink manufacturing companies.

 

This Special Purpose Award in Process Safety was developed in response to requests by industrial participants in the South Western Skills Forum in February 2020.

 

The following Skills Needs/Upskilling Needs by Occupational Role were identified by the industrial participants; Process Safety Engineer, Process Engineering, Resource & Upskilling, Production & EHS Managers, Craft, Chemists, Automation.

 

This programme addresses the key challenge identified over the next decade to ensure an adequate supply of qualified individuals with consistent learnings aligned with industrial needs across the institutions based in the South West (MTU and UCC).

 

Students will attain knowledge and understanding of the theory and application of Process safety. This involves online delivery of the main theoretical elements of the programme combined with Industry delivered seminars and workshops. The first module is designed to give students a theoretical grounding in the issues that must be addressed when assessing the hazards arising from the process industries. The second module addresses Process Safety in practice.
