SAChE® Certificate Program - The Importance of Process Safety
- Course ID:
- Type: eLearning (online) Course
- Skill Level:
Process safety is an increasingly critical aspect of chemical engineering. This course, taught in three interactive learning units, serves as the perfect introduction to its principles. Students will learn how process safety is defined and how it relates to the AIChE Code of Professional Ethics. After exploring the Four Pillars of Risk-Based Process Safety, they’ll review case studies to understand how process safety functions in the real world. Students will emerge from this course with a solid process safety foundation that will be important for the rest of their SAChE certification training and their futures in chemical engineering.
Newly updated and redesigned as part of AIChE’s Undergraduate Process Safety Learning Initiative (UPSLI), this SAChE Certificate module features state-of-the-art interactive eLearning technology to make process safety education more engaging than ever before.
