Chemical and Allied Industries’ Association hosts expert dialogue on process safety
A Responsible Care® Process Safety Expert Dialogue, hosted by CAIA, was held on 12 and 14 September 2017 in Johannesburg and Durban, respectively. The keynote speaker, John S. Bresland, former Chairman of the United States of America’s Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board (CSB), led the Dialogue. Local, regional and international stakeholders in the field of process safety, were engaged in discussion to learn and understand new technologies, ideas and trends in maintaining process safety within the chemical and allied industries. Three key principles i.e. Working Together, Encouraging Excellence and Sharing and Learning are already advocated by CAIA as they are entrenched in CAIA’s network of initiatives, committees and fora. This event brought key stakeholders together - industry, academia and Government departments, to forge the way to improve industrial process safety and achieve process safety excellence in South Africa and across its borders.
