CCPS 7-Minute Seminar Series
CCPS has kicked off the 7 minute seminar with the goal of creating a large database of short seven minute videos that quickly inform a plant manager, engineer or operator about a specific piece of equipment. In 7 minutes professionals can have a “Take two for Safety” where they will review the mechanics and science behind the equipment of interest. This reference database will help eliminate simple mistakes caused by employees which lead to mechanical failures and potentially bigger catastrophes.
