Impact of Facility Siting on Preventing Incidents
Facility siting is a method of examining the safety of the layout of a new or existing plant site. The layout of process buildings and equipment can determine the cost and complexity of a plant site and have significant impacts on the safety of its operation. By building inherent safety into a site, a reduction of both the cost and complexity can be obtained. Optimum facility siting minimizes the risk of losses throughout a site’s life cycle and builds an even safer work environment.
The Mary Kay O’Connor Process Safety Center and the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station will be issuing a certificate of completion for 1 Professional Development Hour for each of the six Process Safety events in 2018. To qualify, attendees must be present during the entire webinar and they must indicate in our poll/survey that they wish to receive a certificate.

Wonderful Friend of Chemical Processing
Champion and Pioneer of Process Safety
The need for process safety in the chemical industry is paramount. Technical knowledge and understanding of hazards and risks associated with operations in addition to the implementation of that knowledge into practice are the keys to keeping workers and the environment safe. Chemical Processing’s Process Safety webinar series aims to address best practices by covering the major areas within process safety to improve process safety performance.
The late Dr. M. Sam Mannan, PE, CSP, DHC, regents professor and director, Mary Kay O' Connor Safety Center, worked with the editors of Chemical Processing to create this series. He serves as the expert presenter for each webinar.
