Scott Berger has nearly forty years of experience in process safety and EHS management. From 2001 – 2015, he served as Executive Director of the Center for Chemical Process Safety (CCPS). Under his leadership, the body of knowledge and scope of practice of process safety expanded both technically and globally, growing from a primarily technical practice to one involving leadership, culture, and business. Transformative initiatives under his leadership included the Business Case for Process Safety, the fundamentals of Process Safety Culture, the next generation Guidelines for Risk Based Process Safety, development and deployment of global process safety metrics, Process Safety Boot Camp, and Process Safety Vision 20/20.
Prior to CCPS, Berger led EHS initiatives at the technology-manufacturing-business interface for Rohm and Haas and Owens Corning, reducing risk through technology and management and creating value through process safety, pollution prevention, and sustainability.
