Process Safety: Are We Getting Any Better?
There have been many well publicized process industry accidents around the world since the 1970s. These accidents have resulted in new regulations, government bureaucracies, standards, books, products, and even training and qualification programs. We’ve been covering these issues at industry conferences for more than 30 years. Are we making any headway? Are we getting any better in terms of process safety? Are we having fewer accidents, injuring fewer people, or having less environmental impact? This presentation will answer that question through the observations of someone with four decades of experience, the anecdotal experience of others, and a review of industry studies.
