9th Regional Process Safety Seminar

22—23 September 2020, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

We continue to see process safety incidents occur all over the world, despite the vast amount of knowledge we have about root causes.

So why do we not seem to be learning the lessons of the past?  

People will respond and act based on what they have experienced in the past. If people are encouraged to bypass safety systems by being rewarded for delivering productivity, they will continue to do it. This is where leadership and culture come to the fore.

Demonstrating good process safety leadership will not only lead to positive process safety results, which directly enhance organisational reliability, they will also lead to a culture where people are valued and supported.

This improvement of leadership and culture underpin our efforts to improve process safety outcomes, so people can go home at the end of their shift, unharmed.

Join us at the 9th Regional Process Safety Seminar so see how you can enhance your leadership and organisational culture to achieve improved results.
