The process industry, including Petrochemical and Pulp & Paper, is currently facing a number of performance challenges. As experienced baby boomers retire in increased numbers, a highly specialized workforce that has remained largely stable for a number of years is now in transition.
And, in spite of new engineers graduating college to take their place, new operators being hired from retail industries or tradespersons being recruited from light manufacturers lack the practical knowledge they need to work safely and effectively around highly hazardous chemicals and complex technologies.
In addition, regulatory requirements continue to increase, placing more requirements upon operations personnel. Meanwhile, the demand for gasoline and petroleum products is at record levels amid challenging global economic conditions.
