The IChemE Safety Centre
The IChemE Safety Centre (ISC) was established in 2013 as a dedicated global initiative to establish a coordinated approached towards influencing government and policy on improving process safety in industry. 
 
The ISC works with industry partners and regulators to help understand the priorities and challenges of process safety. The industry partnerships also provides a unique and rare opportunity to exchange knowledge and learning across differing industries.
 
The Centre is a subscription based industry-led consortium operating out of Melbourne, Australia and is governed by an advisory board.

Professional Process Safety Engineer
Despite industry’s best efforts to mitigate major incidents and loss – accidents still occur. Identifying that there was a shortage of professionals who were suitably skilled across all aspects of process safety, led to the establishment of a new international process safety engineering registration - Professional Process Safety Engineer. 
 
The aim of the registration is to help raise the standards of process safety management worldwide and provide process safety professionals with a recognised international qualification, similar to that of a Chartered Engineer – the ‘gold standard’ for chemical and process engineers.
