February 19, 2014 - You've requested a third party assessment of your operation because there is room for improvement. In a short time, someone who knows little about your operation comes in, asks questions, presents findings and creates angst and resistance to change.
January 31, 2014 - While a host of factors will influence profitability, maximizing your plant’s production output potential is arguably one of the facility’s greatest opportunities. But how does one align this with bottom-line expectations?
LearningSI, a provider of customized process and production-oriented training programs for industrial workers, announced a new series of e-learning modules designed to help companies get new workers up-to-speed faster, reduce downtime and improve their bottom lines.
This newly updated two-day course provides an in-depth review of the requirements for process piping systems, including overviews and applications of both the CSA B51-14 Boiler, Pressure Vessel and Pressure Piping Code and the ASME-B31.3-2012 Process Piping Code. It includes content on two new CSA B51 clauses and covers topics on both codes from initial design to in-service management.
The projected environmental impacts of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are driving many organizations to reduce their GHG emissions, using independent, third-party verifiers to measure and verify their GHG emissions as part of an overall strategy that could lead to becoming net carbon neutral.
This course provides a background and introduction to greenhouse gas projects – projects that reduce emissions (such as alternative energy projects) or enhance emissions removal (such as forestry projects). The course reviews the requirements of ISO 14064-2, including principles and requirements for: determining project baselines, monitoring, quantifying and reporting project performance, validation and verification requirements.

Can a lubricant influence safety performance?
REM - Resource Engineering and Maintenance magazine is now accepting registrations for the 2016 Oil & Lube webinar series.
A facility that operates without a reliable lubrication program is susceptible to machine wear control, oil mix-ups and reactive maintenance. Setting up an effective program improves reliability and helps overall maintenance cost control. In this free webinar series focused on oil & lubrication, James Reyes-Picknell, in conversation with a select panel of subject matter experts, will help you brush up on the basics and take away new tactics of the trade.
This free webinar provides maintenance tactics that can be deployed to ensure failure events that affect safety are managed effectively. The presentation will cover the current understanding of how equipment behaves and will discuss age/life-related failures versus random failure.
It has become wholly unacceptable for companies to allow or tolerate equipment deterioration that results in failures with serious health, safety or environmental consequences. While this has been publicly adopted by major corporations throughout most of the world, events continue to occur that have catastrophic results. These are often found to be a combination of human error and equipment failure. This combination, along with failures of complex protective systems (machines monitoring machines) has been the root cause of some of the world’s most devastating accidents. A quick google search will instantly return events like the Texas City Refinery Explosion, the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill, Chernobyl, Aloha Flight 243, 3 Mile Island and many others.
