Speaking of Engineering public lecture to talk about on engineering's role in process safety management

Speaking of Engineering public lecture to talk about engineering's role in process safety management.

Flawless process safety management involves the perfect alignment of quality design and engineering and perfected operations and maintenance practices. Collaborativey, these elements ensure the safety and integrity of process systems. On the other hand, the perfect alignment of gaps or flaws in process safety layers of protection can cause catastrophic results, also known as the Swiss cheese line-up for failure.

Join us on Wednesday, Dec. 13 at 7:30 p.m. in the Fortis Angus Bruneau Lecture Theatre, rm. EN2006, (S.J. Carew (Engineering) Building, as Dan Harris, refinery manager with North Atlantic Refinery Limited, with his 35 years of refining experience shares his vast knowledge of process safety management and its connection to the Swiss cheese analogy.

Mr. Harris will discuss the concept of building safety into a project to reduce the likelihood of incidents and their consequences - a concept known as inherently safer design.
