The regional learning hub dedicated to lessons learnt from process safety successes and failures to manage risk more effectively and reduce the number of incidents.
With increasing focus across the oil and gas industry on reducing costs due to the low oil prices oil and gas operators are too aware of the human, environmental, social, reputational, legal and financial costs that can occur when they cut corners.
Major incidents as recent as Dec 2015 which include the chemical plant explosion in Baku, Azerbaijan and the Maroun Petrochemical Company blast in Mahshahr has shown how the consequences for capital costs, income, insurance costs, investment confidence and shareholder value can all be drastically affected. This is why it is important to keep making the case over and over again for the constant and critical importance of process safety, regardless of the economic circumstances.
Building on the success of the process safety conferences we have been delivering over years, the 8th Annual Process Safety Summit brings together a diverse range of oil and operators and solution providers to give attendees an insight on how to reduce the risk of future hazardous events and ensure employees and assets are operating within the safest environment possible.
Key themes for 2016 include:
Culture and leadership:Overview of the plans and actions in place to improve process safety understanding commitment and performance.
Compliance and safety excellence:How international organizations are encouraging workforce involvement and buy-in by establishing a responsibility for workers to make suggestions to ensure compliance and avoid repeat incidents.
Risk assessment and mitigation:Successfully identifying and monitoring hazardous risks by ensuring a reliable mechanical integrity program for ageing assets.

“ The 7th Annual Process Safety conference was a very gainful event for process safety best practices specially PSM & incident investigation. One of the best platforms I have participated in the Middle East dedicated to process safety professionals for sharing and learning.”
