Why You Should Attend

Facility Siting and Risk Mitigation for Processing Plants

The conference will be driven by case study presentations that provide tested tools and methodologies for ensuring safe and efficient plant operations. Our facility siting and risk mitigation speakers will present errors and success stories of their own attempts to implement new protection systems in order to comply with developing regulations and best protect employees and the environment.

The program will addresses key areas such as regulatory mandates, improving safety between personnel  and process hazards, emergency response measures, management of change, methods of upgrading existing buildings, developing sustainability in procedures and equipment, consequence and risk-based modeling, distinguishing credible scenarios, implementing LOPA to compliment HAZOP, explosion and dispersion modeling, revalidating your PHA, and more!

Key Topics
