SOCMA To Host National Chemical Safety Symposium

May 15, 2013

Conference planned for May 22 in Houston.

 

Given the chemical industry’s increasing emphasis on safety, the Society of Chemical Manufacturers and Affiliates (SOCMA) ChemStewards Program is hosting the National Chemical Safety Symposium, May 22, 2013, in Houston, TX, where national and local authorities will discuss the latest trends and methodologies in process and occupational safety. ChemStewards—SOCMA’s environmental, health, safety and security program (EHS&S)—assists chemical companies in optimizing their performance and creating a safe and secure manufacturing environment.



 “As I’ve visited facilities throughout the past year, I’ve found process and occupational safety are top priorities for these companies, and they are making investments to ensure their employees are getting the training they need to create a safe workplace,” said Dr. J. Holland Jordan, Managing Director of ChemStewards. “As a program established to meet the unique needs of the specialty chemical industry, the symposium is one way we can provide information and share best practices to assist these companies on the road to improving their EHS&S practices.”




Chemical Engineering Department Regents Professor Dr. M. Sam Mannan, holder of the T. Michael O'Connor I Chair and director of the Mary K. O’Connor Process Safety Center at Texas A&M University, will be the keynote speaker. Also included on the agenda will be professionals from industry, government and academia. And an expert industry panel will discuss new techniques designed to address plant safety.
