IChemE ceo David Brown says: “Our first Hazards process safety conference in Malaysia last year was a big success and we will build upon that event for 2013. Every chemical and process engineer should have a good understanding of process safety regardless of job role and sector and we’re looking forward to working with the Chemical Industries Council of Malaysia on the event.”
