Many engineers are unaware that Process Safety Management (PSM) includes over a dozen management system elements that they already interact with every day and that impact every aspect of a chemical facilities’ operation. Organizations such as CCPS, the Chemical Safety Board, NFPA, US-OSHA, and others have posted information, videos, databases, and modeling programs online with the hope that technical professionals will use them to maintain and improve their facilities’ process safety performance.  Attendees are encouraged to bring their cell phones and be prepared to sign up/login to information that is waiting for them to discover.
