Chemical reactions can give us valuable products, new materials and liberated energy. But uncontrolled or unintended reactions can release energy and reaction products in ways that can cause serious loss and harm. Chemical engineers must be able to identify and understand chemical reactivity hazards so they can be reduced, controlled, or avoided.

This webinar is a condensed version of a course on identifying and managing chemical reactivity hazards. You will benefit from it if you have responsibility for designing, assessing, operating or managing a new or existing facility that may handle reactive materials or have the potential for reactive interactions.
