Is your Knockout Drum Adequately Sized?

By Neil Prophet and Charles Lea
Tuesday, April 12, 2022, 1:30 – 2:00 pm CST, Room 007BCD

There are many factors to consider when designing a flare knockout drum, and the consequences of getting it wrong can be significant. This presentation reviews best practices to consider when sizing a knockout drum. In addition, for existing undersized flare systems currently in use, mitigation options for inadequately sized knockout drums will be discussed.

Leveraging the Use of Hard and Soft Skills in Process Safety

By Neil Prophet and Marcel Amoros
Wednesday, April 13, 2022, 8:30 – 9:00 am CST, Room 006ABC

This presentation reviews the benefits and requirement to have both soft and hard skills within process safety. We will share how soft skills can enhance process safety. It also takes a look at the calculations used in process safety and is intended to appeal to those with both soft skills and hard skills. We will summarizes the code requirements for these calculations, which recognized and generally accepted good engineering practice (RAGAGEP) exists, and point out technical details that a process safety practitioner should be aware of when reviewing and interpreting these calculations.

A Tale of Two MOCs: An Adventure Fable Outlining the Constant Danger of Not Following a Proper Process Safety Protocol

By Pamela Nelson and Lisa Ruth
Tuesday, April 12, 2022, 3:30 -4:00 pm CST, Room 004

Two stories told in the form of fairy tales to illustrate the importance of Management of Change through the stories of two actual incidents. The fairytales will use familiar character types and forms to illustrate: Why the change was not recognized, Hazards of uncontrolled changes, and The importance of Management of Change in the prevention of Process Safety Incidents

Leveraging Incremental Online Learning with Leaderful Practices – A Perspective on Achieving Perfect Process Safety Competency

By Kristin Robbins and Lisa Ruth
Tuesday, April 12, 2022, 2:00 – 2:30 pm CST, Room 006ABC

A case study is used to explore the concepts of learning incrementally, competency development, and leaderful practices. This presentation will online learning management system (LMS) with training structured as building blocks improves overall competency specific to a particular skill set. It will also demonstrate scalability for large organizations, including cross-functional teams beyond the immediate scope of process safety, strengthening safety culture and performance. This online training perspective serves to complement the Vision 20/20 (as proposed by the Center for Chemical Process Safety (CCPS) in 2011) to further reach prefect process safety.
