Analisi fabbisogno formativo

To provide a sound breadth of knowledge and understanding that enables qualification holders to contribute to the management of process safety risks. The process safety industry is high hazard so having qualified people to manage activities within the industry will lead to safer workplaces. This will help to prevent loss of life but will also help to protect valuable assets and help organisations avoid prosecution and ultimately loss of reputation.

The example of the above is The Deepwater Horizon incident which tragically led to 11 people losing their lives and the total cost to BP was in the region of $62 billion.
