Interesting Safety Leadership article (Getting the Board on board - Pentagon Chemicals) in the June 2015 edition of the IChemE TCE magazine which quotes the Energy Institute definition of Process Safety.
Process safety is a blend of engineering and management skills focused on preventing catastrophic accidents and near hits, particularly, structural collapse, explosions , fires and damaging releases associated with a loss of containment of energy or dangerous substances such as chemicals and petroleum products.
These engineering and management skills exceed those required for managing workplace safety as it impacts people, property and the environment
Don't forget this last statement - Slips, Trips & Falls are very different to Trips, HIPPS & Fireballs !
