Article by Amanda Jasi

THE IChemE Safety Centre (ISC) celebrated a key milestone this month as it welcomed fire engineering consultancy Jensen Hughes as its 50th company member.

The ISC is a not-for-profit multi-company industry consortium, focused on improving process safety.

Jensen Hughes, a leading consultancy in fire protection engineering, became part of the ISC in July 2023, joining other process industry partners in making a clear commitment to delivering best performance in process safety.

Adrian Pierorazio, vice president of industrial process safety for Jensen Hughes, said: “The ISC is the premiere thought leader in process safety. As an international consulting company focused on addressing the complexities of safety, we wanted to be able to work with like-minded organisations around the world to advance best practices that will help address the challenges of managing risk and create safer, more sustainable solutions.”

He added that the company looks forward to partnering with the ISC to achieve a future without serious industrial incidents.

Trish Kerin, director of the IChemE Safety Centre, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Jensen Hughes as the 50th member of the ISC. Membership is a tangible sign that an organisation treats process safety as a major priority, helping to underpin trust and credibility, demonstrate care for employees and communities, and enhance corporate reputation with regulators, investors, insurers, business partners, and the community.

“ISC membership provides diverse organisations with access to essential training resources, references, and publications that have been developed to advance process safety worldwide, as well as a valuable opportunity to engage in ISC activities, seminars, and workshops which make an important contribution to global process safety knowledge.”

A supportive and informative resource

In a recent ISC survey, integrated energy company EnQuest explained why it became a member.

Ross McCormack, EnQuest’s process safety lead said: “I have found the ISC to be a supportive and informative resource for my organisation, with a library of beneficial material available to help my organisation in our work which is continually growing. I have also witnessed first-hand a high degree of professionalism and timely in-person support where requested.”

There are three categories of ISC membership: operating partner (producers and manufacturers); industry partner (consultants, equipment manufacturers, etc); and supporting partner (regulators and academic institutions).
