Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Roy E. Sanders, Chemical Engineer, is a Compliance Team Leader for the Chlor/Alkali Production facilities at PPG Industries, Lake Charles, Louisiana. He has specialized in Process Safety since 1974, and was Superintendent of Loss Prevention at PPG from 1982 to 1998. After graduating from Louisiana State University, in 1965, with a BS in Chemical Engineering, he held various operations and technical positions at PPG involving chlor/alkali and chlorinated hydrocarbons. He has been the principal author of many practical articles published on chemical process safety that offer a within-the-fence look at that activity from an operations, maintenance and engineering standpoint. His book, Management of Change in Chemical Plants ,1993, received excellent peer reviews. His second book Chemical Process Safety: Learning from Case Histories was released in early 1999 and is sold so well that it was reprinted. Mr. Sanders has served as Chairman of PPG Lake Charles' Emergency Response Planning Committee, and Chairman of the Technical Safety Review Board. He was responsible for process hazards analyses and has investigated numerous process accidents.
