Traditionally, these management systems and regulations were focused on the chemical (e.g. inorganic, petrochemical, fertilizer, pharmaceutical, speciality, continuous/batch) and energy (e.g. oil & gas, nuclear) industries, and are generally credited with reducing major accident risk in those industries. However, today there is a growing recognition that the same process safety practices and principles can be beneficially applied to other industries.
The author has applied process safety practices and principles to industries as diverse as a steel foundry, shipbuilding, and mining operations (underground, open cast). The facilities visited have welcomed assistance in reducing their risks and readily accepted and implemented recommendations for improving their existing practices and procedures. The author will discuss his experience of working within these industries and highlight opportunities in which process safety professionals can make a difference.
