DuPont unveils training methods to boost risk management

Jan '14
Global operations management consultancy DuPont Sustainable Solutions has announced the creation of a new suite of methodologies aimed at helping companies to bolster their operational risk management systems. 

These solutions help companies to address technical skill shortages – an unintended consequence of demographic change – by building capabilities related to proper handling of hazardous materials.

“In working with clients to augment their operational risk management performance, we have seen first-hand that there is often a gap in the knowledge and skills required to manage hazardous materials safely,” said Srinivasan Ramabhadran, global practice leader for Operational Risk and Process Safety Management. 

“Despite this, most companies lack a structured approach to building capabilities of the workforce related to process safety, and, consequently, have increased the risk of a major catastrophic incident.”

Operational risk management is becoming ever more critical, especially in light of major industrial incidents across the globe where human error was shown to be a principal contributing factor.

To address this, DuPont Sustainable Solutions has announced the creation of a structured learning experience that has been proven to develop employee skills so they can manage hazardous processes safely. 

This includes methodologies that can be scaled to meet the needs of the company from a simple problem-based training to integrated process safety management (PSM) learning and development. The training can be customized to develop skills in specific areas, as needed. Further, the blended learning format - a modular curriculum, instructor-led training and e-learning – leverages applied learning, allowing companies to maximize uptake and retention.

“By cultivating competency in process safety, companies cannot only mitigate operational risk, but also run operations smoothly, and contribute to productivity and efficiency,” Srinivasan said. “This allows companies to protect their assets – their facilities, their investments, and most importantly, their people.”

DuPont Sustainable Solutions is one of 12 DuPont businesses. Bringing customers the benefits of an integrated global consulting services and process technology enterprise, it applies DuPont’s real-world experience, history of innovation, problem-solving success, and strong brands to help organizations transform their workplaces and work cultures to become safer, more efficient and more environmentally sustainable. 

DuPont has been bringing world-class science and engineering to the global marketplace in the form of innovative products, materials, and services since 1802.  The company believes that by collaborating with customers, governments, NGOs, and thought leaders, we can help find solutions to such global challenges as providing enough healthy food for people everywhere, decreasing dependence on fossil fuels, and protecting life and the environment.
