E-Books: Introduction to Process Safety for Undergraduates and Engineers

4 min read

Introduction to Process Safety for Undergraduates and Engineers by CCPS (Center for Chemical Process Safety). This book is intended to be used as reference material for either a stand-alone process safety course or as supplemental material for existing curricula. This book is not a technical book; rather, the intent of the material is to familiarize the student or an engineer 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 and Process safety concerns with some selected unit operations. 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.

This book is intended to be used as reference material for either a stand-alone process safety course or as supplemental material for existing curricula. This book is not a technical book; rather, the intent of the material is to familiarize the student or an engineer 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 is 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.
  • Show how various aspects of process safety have a direct tie-in to existing chemical engineering curricula.
  • Describe the many 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.
Introduction to Process Safety for Undergraduates and Engineers Book’s Cover

This primary audience for this publication is junior to graduate-level Chemical Engineering students and those entering the workforce and engineers new to process safety. However, since there are no technical pre-requisites recommended, it may also be used by other engineering disciplines at similar levels.

Process Safety – What Is It?
In the chemical, petrochemical, and most other industries, you will find that all companies are required to have an occupational safety program, with a focus on personal safety (this program may be required by regulations in many countries, states, and local areas. It can apply to workers in a manufacturing plant, a research laboratory or pilot plant, and even to office locations). That program is going to focus on personal safety. The focus of these programs is to prevent harm to workers from workplace accidents such as falls, cuts, sprains, and strains, being
