114 Process Safety Management Challenges with Infrastructure and Facility Siting

Tuesday, April 2, 2019: 1:30 PM - 3:00 PM
Chart B/C (Hilton New Orleans Riverside)

Process safety professionals face numerous challenges associated with infrastructure and facility siting. Aging infrastructure and assets and recommissioning and creative re-use of existing assets for a new purpose present complicated challenges for risk management. Issues with grandfathering assets and temporary operations need to be managed to ensure that risk is managed effectively in the short-term and that continued operation meets the company's risk tolerance. Operating assets with shared responsibility with other partners, such as in an industrial park with many tenants or joint ventures, require coordination for activities such as emergency response and alignment of risk management between the tenants and partners. This session seeks papers that describe best practices for risk management in complex operating environments, where infrastructure and facility siting issues present unique challenges for process safety management.
