    About Me

    Dominic graduated from the University of the West of Scotland with a 1st class BEng in Chemical Engineering in 2020.

    Prior to joining Synergie Environ, Dominic worked as a Graduate Chemical Engineer with Tata Steel Europe. While at Tata Steel Dominic was based on the process safety improvement team for the Steel & Slab area of the works. This allowed Dominic to gain rare process safety experience on a top tier COMAH site. While in this role Dominic took part in various process safety studies (e.g. HAZOP, LOPA, What if, Management of Change), sized pressure relief valves and worked on several internal projects. This role also required Dominic to compare current practice against established standards (e.g. BS EN) to ensure that best practice was being followed. Dominic also liaised with the original equipment manufacturers of plant equipment to ensure that the correct operating procedures were being followed.

    Dominic was able to take part in a mixture of formal and informal training during his time at Tata Steel. This training included a functional safety course (Functional Safety and SIL for Technicians (IEC61511)) with the external company Method Functional Safety.
