Inherently safer design has received a lot of attention in recent years from industry, environmental groups, and has even been discussed in the general public and mass media. Bills have been introduced in the United States Congress requiring consideration of inherently safer design, both for safety and also as for potential benefit in making chemical facilities less attractive targets for terrorist activity. As of the summer of 2009, these proposals had not passed in Congress, but legislation is again under consideration.
Explore inherently safer design of chemical processes and plants, and learn how to avoid hazards rather than control them. In this course, you'll identify the principles for achieving inherently safer processes that have a low level of danger even if things do go wrong.
