For years, clay has been the go-to product for spill containment simply because it was cheap and did the job. While clay, also referred to as diatomaceous earth, sand or kitty litter, will always have a place in in spill containment, if it’s the only product being used to clean up hazardous and other spills, it could be costing your facility more than you realize. With more modern options available...

There was a time, not long ago, when most groups responsible for industrial control systems (ICS) in the chemical process industries (CPI) were not much worried about security. They had their firewalls in place and their remote access servers, and overall that worked for them. Rarely, a virus would sneak in and usually do little damage. The affected computers would need to be shut down and cleaned out, but...

Question:  What standard, guideline or regulation should I use to create a cybersecurity program, or should I wait until a standard is finalized? Answer:  Waiting until a cybersecurity standard is explicitly selected, accepted and enforced is a mistake for two very good reasons.  First, a security program is much more social and cultural than technical. One thing we’ve learned from the...

In 2005, an explosion at the BP Texas City refinery facility killed 15 and injured an additional 180. At the time, it was considered to be the worst industrial accident in 16 years, and continues to top the list. While the incident was expected to serve as a wakeup call for the facility management, workplace deaths continued for at least three years following the 2005 event. And, as late as October 30...

A variety of factors — including a shift in the median age of workers worldwide and the impending skills shortage due to attrition and early retirements — have created a need to find fast and reliable methods and tools for mapping the technical competencies of professionals in the chemical process industries (CPI). Typically competency-mapping projects in the CPI begin with some form of task or...

Many individuals and organizations have made important contributions to the creation of inherently safer (IS) products, processes and process plants [1–3]. A brief survey of successful case histories shows that most reported applications relied on only a few of the core IS principles. This paper emphasizes the opportunities presented by three particular — and often-overlooked —...
