Title: Process Safety Implementation Pyramid

Speaker: Richard Meier


This webinar with Richard Meier will introduce a novel tool for understanding the fundamentals of

chemical process safety. It will show a step by step guide for implementing and teaching this complex



The pyramid can also be used as a flow chart to time-task a multi professional work group in either

creating from scratch, or evaluating a facility’s program. Participants should come away with a better

understanding of how to build and organize a very complex team endeavor. 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
