Workshop Features Practical Applications Of EHS Research

May 15, 2018
The 31st Annual Environmental, Health and Safety (EHS) Seminar & Industry Trade Show will be held on June 4 - 7, 2018 in Galveston, Texas.

The 31st Annual Environmental, Health and Safety (EHS) Seminar & Industry Trade Show will be held June 4 – 7, 2018 at Moody Gardens Convention Center, Galveston, Texas. The event kicks off with the Workshop on Practical Applications of Mary Kay O'Connor Process Safety Center (MKOPSC) Research on June 4 from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. The MKOPSC workshop addresses three specific areas of interest to the industry and academia: consequence analysis, reactive chemicals and incident investigation and data analysis. MKOPSC conducts a wide variety of process safety research and government/industrial services. 

Segment 1 features state-of-the-art research on release modeling, dispersion modeling, fire and explosion modeling as they apply to chemical industries for plant design, facility siting, risk assessment, mitigation, emergency response and planning. Reactive chemical hazard and risk assessment still remains as one of the major challenges of process safety. 

Segment 2 is focused on providing an introduction to reactive chemical hazards, reaction calorimetric methods, and the application of calorimetric data for ensuring safer operations and operating procedures, relief design and process scale-up. 

Segment 3 covers learning from the past incidents. Despite many years of process knowledge and operating experiences, incidents keep happening. This segment will provide key insights into learning from incidents, leading and lagging indicators for prevention and new paradigm in data analysis i.e., big data and complex incidents modeling.
