Joint Meeting with Chemical Consultants Network

Space Travel in the 21st Century – Safety Strategies and Direction
By Deb Grubbe

Please join with our friends at the Chemical Consultants Network for dinner, and to hear Deb Grubbe. Our speaker will address the techniques and efforts that NASA is currently using to ensure safe space travel in this century.   An analysis of the Lessons Learned from the Challenger and Columbia Shuttle incidents will also be shared, as well as a summary of the current thinking around commercial space travel.   As a member of the NASA Aerospace Safety Advisory Panel since 2003, and as a consultant to Columbia Shuttle Accident Investigation Board, our speaker will be able to bring some clarity to NASA’s safety efforts, and will tie common elements to issues in the process industries.

Deborah L. Grubbe is an accomplished speaker and has distinguished herself as an expert in engineering safety. She has held senior appointments with Du Pont, and with BP for whom she was vice president for group safety and industrial hygiene.  She now has her own consulting firm, Operations & Safety Solutions LLC, to address new challenges and effect positive changes within the industry.
