This interactive panel discussion will bring an invited speaker panel to interact with the attendees and provide lessons from their careers. The career panel discussion will open with one or more accounts of personal recognition of the gravity of PSM.
These sessions will provide specific examples from the four pillars of risk-based process safety: 1. Commit to process safety; 2. Understand hazards and risk; 3. Manage risk; and 4. Learn from experience. Authors are encouraged to provide tutorial and explanatory content suitable for those with little prior experience in the fundamentals of process safety.
Successful PSM programs are well integrated into company and plant operations and have support of management and employees at all levels. Papers in this session will focus on strategies to ensure successful implementation of PSM programs.
Experience is often the quickest and most effective way to learn. Many process safety professionals have lived and worked through “learning experiences” that either gave them a quick introduction to PSM or made them realize just how critical a good program is. This session will provide presenters an opportunity to pass those lessons on to some new in the profession.
This is always an important session that reviews significant incidents. This session invites papers to help understand the causes and lessons learned from significant incidents.
