In April of 2012, AFPM (American Fuel and Petrochemical Manufacturers) and API (American Petroleum Institute) launched six new programs to further advance process safety improvements in the refining and petrochemical industries.  The programs are industry event sharing, hazard identification documents, process safety regional networks, process safety training & certification, process safety metrics and process safety site assessments.  Active industry participation to date exceeds 95% of the US refining capacity as well as several petrochemical companies.  This presentation will provide background on why these programs were developed, review in detail each program provided, how the industries are utilizing each program and how learnings are being shared across the industries at both the site and corporate level.
