SOCMA Members Share Best Practices on EHS&S, Operational Excellence at Greenville Roundtable

Houston Roundtable canceled due to flooding, rescheduled for June 22

The 2016 ChemStewards® Regional Roundtables kicked off this week in Greenville, SC, with 20 attendees who shared best practices on issues such as process safety, near-miss programs and third-party audits, among other ChemStewards-related issues. 

Louisa Nara with AIChE's Center for Process Safety shared a wealth of information on the Vision 20/20 program and the importance of improving process safety in chemical facilities across the country.

The event was sponsored by Boaz Partners, a retained executive search and recruitment firm providing companies with custom staffing solutions in the chemicals and plastics industry.

The Houston Roundtable, which was originally scheduled for April 20, was cancelled due to flooding and has been rescheduled for June 22.
