Management of Change
A number of catastrophic incidents can be attributed to process changes handled incorrectly. Governmental regulations and industry standards mandate a well-defined administrative procedure for management of change as a key element of a process safety management system. These regulations and standards provide the baselines and framework for development of management of change (MOC) programs. This webinar summarizes the diversity of implementation practices in industry and the traps and shortcomings encountered in implementing and maintaining effective MOC programs. Some of the issues addressed include: scope, policy development, change and replacement-in-kind, size of MOC programs, emergency and temporary changes, MOC record management, audits, MOC software, and MOC program awareness training.
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.
