Get up-to-date on a fundamentally different approach to safety in the manufacture and use of chemicals. In one day, you’ll learn about inherently safer product and process design (ISD) as a way to eliminate or significantly reduce hazards—rather than develop add-on protective systems and procedures. You’ll examine risk management layers of protection—inherent, passive, active and procedural—and how and why to build features from all categories into your program. You’ll discover strategies for identifying inherently safer options and see examples that illustrate what you learn. You’ll consider how all processes and materials have multiple hazards and learn how to manage the conflicts among the risks associated with different alternatives. By the end of the course, you’ll have the tools, resources and knowledge to build safety into any phase in the life cycle of a chemical process and eliminate or significantly minimize hazards to protect your people, the environment and your business.
Here’s a preview of what you’ll learn:
- What is inherently safer design?
- The history of ISD and lessons to be learned
- Basic concepts and philosophy
- The process safety management hierarchy
- Strategies for identifying inherently safer options
- Managing design conflicts and barriers
- Tools and resources to help you implement ISD
