Collaborative Process Safety: How to Steal Shamelessly And Get Away with it!
I have the coolest job at Celanese. In process safety, we save lives, protect the environment and preserve all our jobs by keeping bad things from happening in our manufacturing plants. This may seem like a rather bold statement, but consider the toxic gas release that occurred in Bhopal, India in 1984. The company which had the incident no longer exist. The chemical industry was transformed in a positive way through regulations and voluntary improvements to the way we design, build, operate and maintain our manufacturing facilities. The Center for Chemical Process Safety (CCPS) was formed as a result of that incident. The field of process safety exists to prevent these low-probability, high-consequence incidents. The worst attitude we could adopt is to think “it can’t happen here.”
