ABOUT THE SURVEY

Petrotechnics’ third annual Process Safety and Operational Risk Management survey was conducted between May and July, 2018 – in partnership with the Mary Kay O’Connor Process Safety Center. More than 100 individuals took part, of whom 53 per cent have worked in process safety, asset integrity and operational risk for more than 15 years. In addition, 61 per cent are responsible for managing corporate or regional process safety. The remaining respondents are responsible for single-site or asset process safety. Respondents represent companies of all sizes and are located around the world: in total more than 80 per cent are located in North America, APAC, Europe and the Middle East.
