Kletz Honored At Hazards 25

Process safety pioneer Trevor Kletz

Dr Sam Mannan from Texas A&M University’s Mary Kay O’Connor Process Safety Centre delivers the inaugural lecture celebrating the life of process safety pioneer, Professor Trevor Kletz, at the opening of the Hazards 25 process safety symposium in Edinburgh, UK on May 13.

Organized by the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE), the meeting is Europe’s leading annual process safety conference. Hazards 25 provides an international platform for sharing the latest research and lessons learned from process safety successes and failures.

The symposium, which began in 1960, is organized in association with the Mary Kay O’Connor Process Safety Centre. Kletz was a regular contributor from the outset and he remained active professionally until shortly before his death at the age of 90 in 2013.

The program also features a line-up of international keynote speakers including: John Bresland, former chairman of the US chemical safety board; Gus Carroll, UK group head of process safety at Centrica; Dirk Roosendans, head of technological risks at Total and Refining Chemicals in Belgium; and IChemE president, Geoff Maitland. The event runs May 13-15 at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre.
