2015 Global Summit on Process Safety

November 3-5, 2015
The 1st Global Summit on Process Safety held in Mumbai on December 2014 was a great success. The theme of the conference is based on Vision 2020, developed by the Center for Chemical Process Safety and is supported by the Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS (UTP).


Offered in North America, this intensive and highly interactive 4-day course trains chemical engineers in the fundamentals of Process Safety. Taught jointly by process safety veterans with decades of experience at major companies from the process industries.
This course teaches you how to prepare for PHAs, how to ensure compliance with current U.S. regulations related to PHAs, and how to conduct and report PHAs.
The online course covers the US OSHA PSM 14 regulatory requirements as well as the Center for Chemical Process Safety (CCPS) 20 element approach to process safety.
In this CCPS course you’ll hear from process safety expert Brian Kelly for an up-to-date look at the causes and contributors to major incidents in the process safety industry and the latest engineering solutions.
Incidents are minor occurrences and are often the result of a single failure or defect. Join Incident Investigation expert Brian Kelly for an in-depth look at a look at the systematic process of examining and evaluating the causes of an incident so that recurrence can be prevented.

Recognize Hazards to Recognize Change

Della Wong, Donald Lorenzo, Mark Suyama
Improve your management of change (MOC) system by training workers to recognize hazards as indicators of change.

Consider Chemical Reactivity in Process Hazard Analysis

Paul Baybutt
Managing chemical reactivity hazards is more complex than other major hazards. Learn how to use process hazard analysis (PHA) to identify such hazard scenarios and determine whether additional risk-reduction measures are needed for your process.

Apply Can’t Rather than Don’t to Your Process

William Levinson
Many safety systems rely on human intervention to prevent incidents. A different approach is to make it impossible for a catastrophic accident to occur. Learn how to implement the Can’t Rather than Don’t principle.
