To get ahead of the curve, over 25 people from coast to coast, as well as guests from Sweden, participated in the Taking Safety to New Levels: The Next 25 Years workshop on September 18, 2023, in Ottawa. The overall intent of the session was to ensure safety is keeping up with the pace of the industry. The group discussed the enhanced adoption of process safety management (PSM), focusing on two critical drivers: inherently safer design (ISD) and safety culture.
The participants identified key issues, trends and opportunities to strengthen safety across our sector.
