Occupational Health & Safety Virtual Issue

Process Safety Progress presents a special virtual issue - a collection of the Top 15 accessed articles published from the past year to mark the 2011 Occupational Health & Safety Virtual Event.

Published on behalf of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers, Process Safety Progress addresses such topics as incident investigations/case histories, hazardous chemicals management, hazardous leaks prevention, risk assessment, process hazards evaluation, industrial hygiene, fire and explosion analysis, preventive maintenance, vapor cloud dispersion, and regulatory compliance, training, education, and other areas in process safety and loss prevention, including emerging concerns like plant and/or process security.
