PHMSA Control Room Management Implementation Workshop

November 17 / Houston, TX

HMSA is hosting a free workshop on implementation of the Control Room Management Rule at the Intercontinental Hotel in Houston, Texas on November 17, 2010. This workshop is intended to foster an understanding of the Control Room Management Rule. Scheduled speakers will discuss components of the new regulations, such as who is covered, human factors/fatigue mitigation, and managing control room alarms. The workshop will provide opportunities for attendees to ask questions about the rule and to engage in open discussions with PHMSA and each other. There is no cost to attend this workshop, but attendees should pre-register at

Note: The registration website contains a few other questions to help with planning for the workshop, but you are in no way obligated to answer any of the additional questions if you prefer not to do so. Any information you submit will remain internal to PHMSA with a confirmation email to you so you can see your responses (and edit later if you so choose).

The event will NOT be webcast but PHMSA intends to have it recorded for viewing later. For additional information on this workshop, contact Karen Butler 816-329-3835;
