“In a time when the global chemical industry needs points of reference, GPCA represents a landmark all year round; the rendezvous for producers and professionals from around the world to take the industry’s temperature and share constructive views."
"I have attended the GPCA Annual Forum over many years and watched it grow in size and in its importance to the global petrochemical industry. The quality of the debate gets better each year and Dr Al Sadoun and his team should be congratulated for their highly professional organisation of one of the key events in the annual industry calendar."

This seminar is a must-attend session for executive leaders whose business is exposed to operational risks through manufacturing processes. It will highlight the importance of risk control, and offer first steps, practical case studies and valuable takeaways to make rapid, dramatic and sustainable improvement in performance.
Session 1: The importance of risk control.
This session will highlight why risk control is so critical for your business; including the potentially devastating impacts on your workforce, reputation, reliability, and bottom line. Given its importance, why is it that companies so frequently fall into the trap of believing their risks are under control only to have a catastrophic incident? Common blind spots and cultural shortcomings will be explored as well as emerging systematic risks.
Session 2: Best practices in risk control.
What companies can do proactively. This session will address the importance of dynamic risk control that covers both the "soft" side – leadership, culture and organizational capability - and the "hard" side - operational processes and maintenance practices. Practical pointers will be shared to allow you to assess your organization's "Risk IQ" and help you ensure that your critical operational risks are under control.
