By learning from the experience of other engineers and designers, you can help your company steer clear of trouble. You will find relevant incidents not only in high hazard industries that have the possibility of creating wide-spread damage. The principles of process safety should be applied in industries such as baked bean canning, submarine assembly, lifting operations, ferry disembarkations, utilities maintenance, and so on.

Richard Roff is a Fellow of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers working for Costain as Group Process Safety Manager. Based in the North East of England, he advises the group and its clients on the strategic implementation of process safety management across all sectors and service lines but with particular focus on contracts with catastrophic incident potential. He leads for the group on incident investigation and is also involved in auditing, defining company guidance and education in process safety and leadership.

John Bartlett has worked in various industries including chemical, nuclear and naval engineering industries, after earlier training and experience in the chemical process industries with ICI Ltd.

He has experience as designer and developer, project manager, regulatory assessor and inspector, ALARP and safety reviewer.


His expertise covered pressure vessels, submarine technology, lifting and ventilation, alpha containment and handling, mechanical handling, corrosion and piping, maintenance and asset care, and saturation diving systems.


Before becoming an engineering consultant, John spent 20 years with HSE as a regulator of nuclear plants, in particular of reprocessing plants and of naval facilities.

He has a great interest in spreading the application of process safety management principles to mechanical and electrical processing industries, and to getting awareness of these industries and their PSM opportunities to young engineers.
