Beyond Regulatory Compliance, Making Safety Second Nature.
Houston, Texas (PRWEB) October 3, 2007
Syntex Management Systems, Inc., the world's leading provider of enterprise risk management solutions, is pleased to announce that Syntex will participate in the 2007 Mary Kay O'Connor Process Safety Center International Symposium October 23 & 24 at the Brazos Center in College Station, Texas. At the Symposium, Syntex personnel will be available to discuss how measurements of key leading indicators such as Leadership, Culture, and Responsiveness can be extracted from routine safety, environmental and quality management work practices. Once identified, these leading indicators deliver a practical means of measuring, transforming, and improving safety, environmental, and quality management performance.
The Mary Kay O'Connor Process Safety Center consortium was established to support education and research on the health, safety and environmental effects of products and processes. The mission of the Center is to improve safety in the chemical process industry. The Center's educational activities promote safety as second nature to everyone in the industry. In addition, the Center develops safer processes, equipment, procedures and management strategies to minimize losses within the processing industry.
To strengthen the link between research and application and carry forward its mission, the Mary Kay O'Connor Process Safety Center sponsors an annual symposium entitled, "Beyond Regulatory Compliance, Making Safety Second Nature." The 2-day Symposium held every fall at Texas A&M brings together various groups to share hazard-related problems as well as ideas for their solutions. The objectives for the Symposium are three-fold. First, this annual event provides the stakeholders with research reports and updates on the activities and programs of the Center. Second, the complex and intriguing problems faced by industry are identified during discussions and forum activities at the Symposium; the expertise and resources available at the Center can then be focused through research and educational programs to solve the problems. Finally, the Symposium provides an independent and unbiased forum for exchange of ideas and discussion among academia, industry, regulators, and the general public.
