Abstract (300 words maximum)

The Importance of Safety Practices in the Petroleum Industry

Michaela Crowe

Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, Kennesaw State University, Kennesaw, GA, 30144

Petrochemicals are highly demanded products being manufactured to sustain daily processes that require energy. Jobs in petrochemical production pose a higher rate of hazard, injury, and possibly death than other chemical industries. Intensive safety measures must be utilized to promote safe and efficient petrochemical production to satisfy the ever-growing demand. Threats that can arise from exposure to hazardous chemicals, explosions, and problems stemming from operating large machinery must be adequately assessed to ensure that minimal incidents occur in the future. This presentation will review safety hazards that have posed and continue to pose threats to workers in the industry and how close research, intensive training, and regulation on a global scale must be utilized to promote safety in the petroleum industry.
