Familiarizes the student or an engineer new to process safety with the concept of process safety management

Process Safety should be introduced to chemical engineering students and new graduate engineers to make them effective in their future chemical engineering career. Many student engineers do not have the necessary knowledge of process safety to adequately address process safety concerns and this book fills this need providing a reference for many aspects of chemical process safety. Introduction to Process Safety for Undergraduates and Engineers provides guidance to student chemical engineers and newly graduated engineers to the role of process safety plays in process plants.

Introduction to Process Safety for Undergraduates and Engineers familiarizes readers new to process safety with:

  • The concept of process safety management (PSM)
  • The 20 elements of process safety defined by the Center for Chemical Process Safety (CCPS)
  • The need for process safety as illustrated by examples of major process safety incidents that have occurred
  • Process safety tasks for other engineering disciplines
  • Process safety concerns with some selected unit operations
  • Aspects of process safety that have a direct tie-in to existing chemical engineering curricula
  • Tasks that can be expected of an engineer new to process safety with respect to process safety in their first few years on the job

While other texts exist covering the technical aspects of process safety for students there are no textbooks that cover the concepts of process safety management and the need for process safety for students. The CCPS Technical Steering Committee initiated the creation of this book to assist colleges and universities in meeting this challenge and to aid Chemical Engineering programs in meeting recent accreditation requirements for including process safety into the chemical engineering curricula. Graduate level Chemical Engineering students and engineers new to process safety will find this a valuable resource to understand the concepts of process safety management.
