About the Webinar

This webinar with Richard Meier will introduce the Process Safety Implementation Pyramid, a novel tool for understanding the fundamentals of chemical process safety.

The pyramid can also be used as a flow chart to time-task a multi-professional work group, to create from scratch, or to evaluate a facility’s safety program. Participants will come away with a better understanding of how to build and organize complex team endeavors. The Great Pyramids were built methodically, block by block.


On completion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the basic principles of chemical process safety
  • Identify the elements of process safety planning
  • Prepare the steps needed to collaboratively implement a process safety plan
