This symposium serves as the crossroads for process safety where industry, academia, government agencies and other stakeholders come together to discuss critical issues of research in process safety. Experts from around the world will gather as part of this two and a half-day symposium, to share the latest information on the hottest topics aimed at making the process industry a safer place.
Dr. Mannan will lead the Future of Process Safety Workshop on May 24, and on May 25, give a research talk on a Framework for Developing Leading Indicators of Offshore Drillwell Blowout Incidents. The full conference program and attendance details are available on the Hazards 26 website
The Texas A&M Student Research Week (SRW) planning committee would like to congratulate Prerna Jain on her second place win in the Engineering and Architecture subject area at the 19th annual Student Research Week 2016. The College of Engineering had the largest number of competitors at SRW, making up 32% of our 740 participants.
The annual festival, hosted by the Department of Physics and Astronomy, featured free family fun for scientists and kids of all ages. MKOPSC’s demonstration focused on hazard detection, emergency response, and human error, taught through a detailed model of a plant and Lego toys.
The two-day symposium will allow delegates from industry, regulatory institutions, and academia to hear about safety success stories, incident case studies, best practices, new legislative regimes, and recent advances of research on process safety.
