CCPS Visits Brazil

CCPS' Shakeel Kadri, Marvin Szoychen, and CCPS Staff Consultant Alexander Glitz visited about 20 organizations in mid-May 2019 during their Brazil visit. These included collaborative meetings with member companies, potential member companies, and collaborative organizations.

During the week visit, they met with CEOs, VPs, directors, managers, regulators and SMEs of multiple organizations who shared process safety challenges in the region. Their process safety discussion with mining, biofuel, and metal industries highlighted key challenges in these segments. 

Among the many reasons for the scheduled trip were the opportunities to strengthen relationships and engagement with both regional and global members and to establish connections with potential new members. Companies (both member and nonmember) expressed interest in a variety of new project subject areas as well as interest in participating in translation projects. Additionally, planning discussions began for the 9th Latin American Process Safety Conference (LACPS) in 2020, with many of the companies agreeing to provide technical and/or financial support.
