The IChemE Safety Centre (ISC) is a subscription based industry-led consortium, focused on recognizing and tackling process safety requirements in the chemical and process industries. Shell, ExxonMobil, Santos, PTTEP Australasia, and Woodside, represented by the Australian Petroleum Production and Exploration Association (APPEA), have been named as their first industry partners.
APPEA is a national body representing more than 80 oil and gas explorers and producers in Australia. The Association represents a further 250 companies that provide goods and services to the upstream oil and gas industry and promotes the development of oil and gas resources.
Objectives of the ISC include industry reporting, sharing of safety bulletins, sharing learning on process safety incidents and near misses, managing the safety of ageing facilities through implementing health, safety, and environment (HSE) knowledge, identifying commonly required process safety training, identification and measurement of leading process safety indicators and improving process safety culture. IChemE is also in the process of recruiting its first director of process safety.
