Process Safety Technical Areas
This webinar presents an introduction to how industry handles reactive chemical hazards, and provides resource material to teach this subject in an existing course in chemical engineering.
This presentation will link the loss of the Columbia to the 2005 explosion which killed 15 and injured 180, and highlight six key actions useful to prevent chemical accidents, protect the integrity of research, and maybe even improve your life.
Catastrophic dust explosions in 2003 and 2008 have placed an increased emphasis on the prevention and mitigation of dust explosions.
Performing hazard analyses are critical to safe operation in any chemically based operation or experiment. Often, engineers are approached with proposals for chemicals that have not been used in a company or research group previously.
