2nd GPCA Process Safety Workshop
The Gulf Petrochemicals and Chemicals Association (GPCA) announced and launched the Gulf Process Safety Network (GPSN) back in November 2021, during the 4th Responsible Care Conference, with the objective to promote and support driving Process Safety excellence within the regional industry via effective and structured knowledge sharing. Immediately, the GPSN delivered its 1st workshop, themed “Process Safety Excellence via SMART and VIBRANT Metrics”, Building on its success, we are proud to announce the 2nd workshop from 2-3 November 2022 at the Intercontinental Muscat hotel, Oman hosted by OQ.
The 2020 GPCA Responsible Care Performance Metrics Report shows that the number of Process Safety incidents within our industry have only marginally improved, despite the fact that several incidents were investigated, and their root causes were identified and addressed internally. To overcome this challenge, having an effective regional Learning from Incidents (LFIs) platform to facilitate effective sharing is considered a key success feature in preventing similar Process Safety incidents among peer companies.
The 2nd Process Safety workshop, themed “Structured Sharing, Towards Effective Learning”, aims to create a platform to encourage, promote and drive structured and transparent LFIs. The workshop’s agenda will cover the below key topics in which regional and international subject matter experts will share their valuable experiences:
- Regional and global Process Safety keynote addresses
- Learnings from actual regional PS Incidents
- Unique practices in LFI management systems
- Exploring the LFI outlook in the region via an interactive open dialogue
