This article provides a systematic framework for the analysis and improvement of near-miss programs in the chemical process industries. Near-miss programs improve corporate environmental, health, and safety (EHS) performance through the identification and management of near misses. Based on more than 100 interviews at 20 chemical and pharmaceutical(More)

The General Algebraic Modeling System (GAMS) is a programming language that provides a flexible framework for formulating and solving linear, nonlinear and mixed-integer optimization problems. Among other attributes, its syntax allows for declaring associations among variables, constants, and constraints in the form of sets. Through this syntax, input files(More)
This paper provides a systematic framework for the analysis and improvement of near-miss programs in the Chemical Process Industries. Near-miss programs improve corporate Environmental, Health and Safety (EHS) performance through the identification and utilization of accident precursors. By remedying precursors that signal the potential for an accident,(More)
