Striving Toward Safety Excellence in Offshore and Subsea Environments

Thursday, 3 May
Session Chairperson
Cheryl Grounds, Retired
Orlando Acosta, AIChE
Throughout the last 50 years, the role of process safety in the offshore industry has changed drastically, from an uncommon phrase to a conventional part of everyday operation. Now, offshore safety remains a vital component in operating and maintaining successful offshore drilling and production operations. While the idea of implementing safer practices is no longer a unique element in offshore operations, much work still needs to be done in order to truly have process safety excellence as the industry standard. This session will offer models for best practices in creating and integrating safety standards into offshore and marine developments.
