CCPS Conferences & Events


Offered in North America, this intensive and highly interactive 4-day course trains chemical engineers in the fundamentals of Process Safety. Taught jointly by process safety veterans with decades of experience at major companies from the process industries.
This course teaches you how to prepare for PHAs, how to ensure compliance with current U.S. regulations related to PHAs, and how to conduct and report PHAs.
The online course covers the US OSHA PSM 14 regulatory requirements as well as the Center for Chemical Process Safety (CCPS) 20 element approach to process safety.

This online course will introduce you to the CCPS Risk Based Process Safety (RBPS) Management approach, described in the CCPS book Guidelines for Risk Based Process Safety, 2007.  It covers the four pillars and twenty elements that define the structure for the RBPS approach.

In this CCPS course you’ll hear from process safety expert Brian Kelly for an up-to-date look at the causes and contributors to major incidents in the process safety industry and the latest engineering solutions.

Consider Chemical Reactivity in Process Hazard Analysis

Paul Baybutt
Managing chemical reactivity hazards is more complex than other major hazards. Learn how to use process hazard analysis (PHA) to identify such hazard scenarios and determine whether additional risk-reduction measures are needed for your process.

Apply Can’t Rather than Don’t to Your Process

William Levinson
Many safety systems rely on human intervention to prevent incidents. A different approach is to make it impossible for a catastrophic accident to occur. Learn how to implement the Can’t Rather than Don’t principle.

Consider the Role of Safety Layers in the Bhopal Disaster

Ronald Willey
As the situation unfolded, numerous layers of protection failed. Take a look at the safety layers that worked and those that did not, and ask whether there are similarities at your facility.
