2011 International Process Safety Symposium Draw Record Attendance

Featuring an impassioned address on the nation’s energy policy by former Congressman and leading authority on national security Lee H. Hamilton, the 14th annual symposium “Beyond Regulatory Compliance, Making Safety Second Nature” drew record attendance this year.

More than 500 participants from industry and academia attended the symposium, which is sponsored by the Texas A&M University System Mary Kay O’Connor Process Safety Center and serves as the crossroads for process safety.

In addition to Hamilton’s keynote address, nearly 100 presentations were given on various safety-related topics, including safety culture/ operational discipline, incident analysis, process management for safety, and consequence analysis. The symposium also featured exhibits from two dozen companies that demonstrated products, technology and software related to process safety.
