Press releases

GPCA is pleased to announce the inaugural edition of its first Process Safety Conference taking place on 7-10 October 2024 at King Abdullah Cultural Centre, Al Jubail, Saudi Arabia. The conference is the first-of-its-kind process safety gathering dedicated to the chemical and petrochemical industry in the GCC under GPCA’s umbrella and will address the theme “Enabling Process Safety Leadership: Enriching Knowledge, Catalyzing Commitment”.

In 2019, GPCA surveyed CEOs at its member companies to assess the impact of implementation of the seven Responsible Care® Codes of Management Practice. The survey revealed process safety as the top priority for the regional industry, highlighting companies’ commitment toward process safety.

In response to this, GPCA launched the Gulf Process Safety Network (GPSN) on the sidelines of the 4th GPCA Responsible Care Conference in November 2021. The GPSN was created with the objective to promote and support the drive  toward excellence in process safety within the Arabian Gulf chemical industry through effective knowledge sharing and collaboration.

Over the last two years, the GPSN delivered four impactful process safety workshops, creating a platform to promote knowledge sharing among the chemical and petrochemical industry, organizing process safety events, exchanging good practices and discussing the latest digital solutions.

For the first time this year the success of GPCA’s process safety workshops will culminate in the launch of GPCA’s first Process Safety Conference dedicated to the chemical and petrochemical industry.

The inaugural GPCA event will serve as an interactive platform for delegates, providing them with the tools, insights, and collaborative opportunities they need to influence positive impact in driving process safety within their organizations.

This event will offer structured knowledge sharing through keynote addresses, technical presentations, interactive workshops, and panel discussions.

Recognizing that commitment is the driving force behind process safety leadership, the conference seeks to explore strategies and share success stories that inspire dedicated and proactive approaches to sound process safety management at all levels of an organization.
