Columbus KL (Hyatt Regency Chicago)
In the last few years, the concepts of process safety culture, process safety metrics, and facility siting have evolved from a one time emerging issue into an increasingly implemented aspect of a robust and sophisticated process safety program. Several recent industry accidents around the world have resulted in renewed discussion of several concepts including inherently safer design, chemical facility security, fatigue risk management, development of regulatory risk criteria, and understanding the process hazards beyond perceived risks as well as the science of the incidents. This session seeks papers that discuss how recent accidents will impact process safety and what concepts are emerging as the next "hot topics" of process safety programs in the future.
