This course provides an introduction to process safety at the undergraduate level so that the chemical engineering student gains an understanding of what process safety consists of and how process safety concepts are put into practice in the real world. 

The course introduces the student to basic process safety definitions and terms, provides a brief overview of how hazards are identified, and briefly discusses how process safety risks are evaluated and reduced.  The course presents a simplified risk equation used when estimating process safety risk.  The course also introduces the barrier/protection layer model in the context of helping reduce process safety incidents when applying the elements of CCPS’ Risk Based Process Safety (RBPS).
