Course Aims

This course aims to introduce the basic principles of HEMP (Hazard Effect Management Process) in order to develop our students’ professional knowledge and skills in HSSE (Health Safety Security Environment).  HEMP is the systematic hazard analysis process used by the risk management profession to identify the HSSE hazards present in business or operations, assess the risk of their release and identify the controls and recovery measures that need to be in place to manage that hazard if the risk of its release is significant.  HEMP is at the “heart” of the Operation (HSSE) Risk Management Systems.  Safety critical businesses , such as petrochemical or nuclear, need to show that they have applied the HEMP process and have put in place the necessary hazard control and recovery barriers to manage their operation risks in HSSE.
