Teaching Safety in University Settings

WHY it is critical, and HOW to implement an effective program
Saturday, April 27, 2013, 9:00am-4:30pm CDT

Process safety, and a safety culture, is needed in our higher education system not just to meet new ABET requirements, but also to meet the expectations of our industrial constituents, to prepare our students to become responsible engineers, and to enable safe learning and research environments in our own teaching and research spaces.  This session is will help attendees understand why safety education is needed in the University setting and how they can use existing resources to easily and effectively tailor a program to their unique needs.

This workshop-style session will expose attendees to key process safety concepts and provide awareness of the many resources available for use. Existing, successful programs will also be reviewed Instructors will introduce the key concepts of process safety and discuss how they can be presented across the Chemical Engineering curriculum.  Participants will develop a strategy for incorporating safety education in their classrooms, laboratories and/or departments.

Attendees will leave this course with:

  1. A preliminary plan for implementing safety education and practice into their class, department, and/or laboratory
  2. An understanding of the need for safety education in the undergraduate curricula and university research laboratories and a motivation to implement safety in the curricula
  3. An understanding of key concepts on process safety proven methods presently in use in the undergraduate curricula, and awareness of the multiple resources for incorporation of safety education and practice in both the undergraduate curricula and the research laboratories
