Science Manufacturing Process Operative Level 2


The Science Manufacturing Process Operative is found in science process manufacturing industries.

Science process manufacturing is varied. It includes industries such as biotechnology, chemical, composites, petrochemical, polymer, and pharmaceutical.
Science process industries combine raw materials and apply a science based process or processes – biological, chemical, or physical – to create products. Products are made continuously
or in batches.
Process manufacturing industries are highly regulated. The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and other industry regulators inspect employers. The Control of Major Accident Hazards (COMAH) regulations apply to some process manufacturing companies. Employers must manage risks to the employee, product, environment, and sometimes the wider community.
