HOUSTON, March 24, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MechanicalIntegrityCompliance.com announces its complimentary web event entitled How a Holistic Approach to Mechanical Integrity Delivers Value Beyond OSHA PSM Compliance. Engineering and mechanical integrity experts Russ Davis and Vince Carucci — with a special keynote address by Walt Lambertin — discuss the added value a one-source approach to Mechanical Integrity (MI) provides to petrochemical, chemical and refining plant assets beyond OSHA Process Safety Management (PSM) requirements. The webcast airs live April 9, 2014 at 2 p.m. ET online at MechanicalIntegrityCompliance.com, where a replay of the event will also be available.
ABOUT THE SPEAKERS
