Following on from the success of the last four years, IQPC is pleased to announce the dates for the 5th Annual Process Safety Implementation Week, which will take place in Abu Dhabi from 28 September – 1 October 2014.
The region’s most awaited event on process safety now moves into the 5th annual with an in-depth focus on implementation and sustainability apart from designing process safety programs. Now that most of the GCC’s national oil companies have made process safety an important indicator in every employee’s KPI, the responsibility of implementing PSM programs does not just lie with the HSE, process safety or process engineering departments. The task of implementing PSM programs now extends from operations, maintenance and loss prevention to production, technical and refinery management. With more and more incidents of oil spills, pipeline leaks, gas explosions, submarine blasts, etc all over the world, the safety of offshore and onshore resources, including people and facilities, is still a top priority and will continue to remain the single largest priority and responsibility of oil, gas and petrochemical companies including their vendors, partners and solution providers. The Process Safety Implementation Week promises to cover each and every PSM aspect to discuss implementation challenges, KPIs and strategies to drive improvement, PSM application in older operations, new technologies for hazard detection and how to successfully integrate PSM throughout a large organisation.
