Calling All Terminal Operators – ILTA Wants Your TOPS Submissions!
ILTA accepting submissions through May 22 for the Terminal Operating Practices Symposium, an education series designed to provide terminal operators a forum to exchange lessons learned from facility incidents and discuss effective operating practices with their peers. TOPS 2020 is slated for Thursday, September 24 in Boston. The symposium is open exclusively to employees of terminal companies, although you do not need to be an ILTA member to participate. Presentations highlight facility incidents and/or near misses; review operating conditions associated with such incidents; examine response practices; relay lessons learned; and present physical and operational changes made to prevent or mitigate root causes. Presenters from many companies are needed to make this event successful. Please send submissions to email@example.com. Presenters may submit more than one topic, but each topic should have its own submission form. An overview of TOPS and the submission form may be found here.
