Safe Work Practices
Safe work practices are a set of guidelines on how to perform a specific task that may not always be done in exactly the same way. These practices should be developed to mitigate hazards that have been identified through the hazard management process. Safe work practices should include lockout/tagout, decontamination of equipment, hot-work permit, confined-space entry, control of access, shift handover, and simultaneous operations. Risk assessment and risk management principles should be integrated into safe work practices.
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.
