Process safety mini-series 2022

April 25, 2022

You can't ice a cake without the cake, and you can't deploy today's digitalized safety solutions without a solid understanding and foundation of basic process safety. 

In the articles that follow, Jim Montague speaks with experts from automation suppliers, integrators and more about today's process safety best practices. 

Safety basics boost digitalized tools

Angela Summers, president at engineering consultant SIS-TECH, outlines some of the ways that basic process safety knowledge is also needed to sort through digital data and determine which can enable the greatest protection in practice. Read more.

Linking safety disciplines, professions and training

Process safety basics can also determine how traditionally separate engineering fields can coordinate their efforts to improve safety for users and applications. System integrators Process Plus and Hargrove Controls+Automation show how human elements set the table for successful safety. Read more.

Digitalization sells safety investments

Because so many process engineers and other professionals worked at home during the COVID-19 pandemic, more are now aware of digitalized tools, and how they can use them and their data to advocate for safety. Mike Scott, CEO of aeShield, explains how easier data access and analysis enables safety efforts. Read more.

Hydrogen handling for safe sustainability

Process safety will be needed as many industries and communities shift to alternative energy sources like solar and wind—especially as they use far more hydrogen for energy storage and transport. Faisal Khan, director of the Mary Kay O'Connor Process Safety Center at Texas A&M explains how the safety center is studying how to scale up hydrogen for alternative energy storage and transportation.
