More on Workshop

This facilitated workshop will provide practical guidance and experienced-sharing on Recognizing Catastrophic Incident Warning Signs. Identifying these subtle indicators of weaknesses in existing business processes and safety programs is an excellent way to drive continued improvement in your process safety programme. Catastrophic incidents do not just happen; they often result from weaknesses in management systems used to control an operation. Often, weaknesses provide warning signs – subtle or not-so-subtle indicators that something is wrong or about to go wrong.

  • Introduction to Incident Warning Signs
  • Physical Warning Signs

  • Asset Integrity Warning Signs
  • Analyzing Risk and Managing Change Warning Signs
  • Learning from Experiences & Audits
  • Action Planning

Who Should Attend?

  • Executives, Managers, Supervisors, and Engineers involved in operations, engineering, and process safety–
