PRINCETON, NJ – Chilworth Technology, a DEKRA company, has launched its 2014 Process Safety Academy with redesigned and expanded training courses, innovative approaches to learning, and expanded support services to help its clients embed process safety excellence throughout their operations.

“At Chilworth, we define Process Safety Excellence as having the right people, with the right skills, implementing appropriately designed process safety programs, motivated by the right organizational culture, in the right way,” commented Vahid Ebadat, CEO of Chilworth North America. He continued, “Excellence in process safety is being genuinely proficient and competent in the requisite technical disciplines and having the appropriate levels of knowledge embedded in key positions throughout the organization with a mechanism for longevity. Results are far reaching and include: protecting your workforce, facility and the environment; ensuring security of supply; maintaining stakeholder confidence; and complying with all local legislation and avoiding regulator intervention.”

The 2014 training services are expanded with a greater emphasis on tailored, in-company training, although Chilworth will continue to offer open, public courses. The redesigned and expanded Chilworth Academy covers all components of process safety and is structured around four core areas of proficiency: understanding process safety hazards, hazard identification and risk analysis, hazard mitigation and management programs, and measuring success.
