Process Hazard Analysis in Practice – A Case Study Approach

November 21, 2016 | Seneca College, Toronto, ON

Director of Engineering, Dr. Marko Saban, P. Eng, will present Process Hazard Analysis in Practice – A Case Study Approach to Seneca College's Chemical Engineering students. Marko will recount true stories including incidents, near-misses, and at-risk behaviour in the workplace from his student years through to his present role at the Xerox Research Centre of Canada (XRCC). He'll explore recent examples of HAZOP studies and reveal how a world-class research facility has learned from them. Finally, Marko will emphasize the ABC model of human behaviour and discuss how it applies to chemical process safety.
