MMI are official sponsors of Hazards 24, which takes place in Edinburgh between the 7th and 9th of May.
It is widely accepted that process safety competence, coupled with the importance of retaining lessons learned in a corporate memory, is at the heart of a safe operating environment.
Despite this, we continue to see major process industry accidents caused by human error, a failure to learn from past incidents and breakdown of process safety systems.
History reminds us that the financial and human costs of a major incident will typically far outweigh the costs of proper prevention. However, we still see catastrophic episodes, causing fatalities and serious injuries; the recent explosion at a Texas fertiliser plant involving ammonium nitrate was remarkably similar to incidents at Oppau, Germany and Texas City, USA, demonstrating that this type of event can happen over and over again.
Hazards 24 will provide a platform for sharing best practice and latest research on all aspects of chemical and process safety in Europe, helping you to manage and reduce risk more effectively.
