This Process Industries Division Event has been organised by the Process Industries Division Centres in the North West and Yorkshire Regions and the Aberdeen Area, part of the Process Industries Community

Organisations with catastrophic or process incident risks must monitor and manage those risks across the process lifecycle from design to eventual demolition – this includes thinking about the effect that changes could have on risk control systems or barriers that reduce the chances of incidents.  Experience has shown that this takes more than a simplistic view of immediate effects; it requires consideration of intended and possible unintended consequences in the same way that original designers may have worked.


Some incidents will be described and how intentional changes initiated the situations that led to them will be discussed.  A further presentation will cover the types of change engineers and managers should have in mind when considering where to apply formal control procedures.


The audience will be asked to consider whether there may be changes that are going unidentified or unmanaged where they work and to reflect on the cumulative effects on process risk of poorly managed change.


Speakers:: Richard Roff, Ryszard Hellebrand, Stephen McEvoy, Martyn Ralph, Mark Backler
