CCPS Project Subcommittees

Each year the CCPS Technical Steering Committee develops a list of projects, and a Project Subcommittee is established for each approved CCPS project or group of associated projects. Members of the Technical Steering Committee suggest individuals with the appropriate experience and expertise for particular projects.

Active CCPS Projects are listed below. CCPS Project Subcommittees consist of at least eight professionals from sponsor manufacturers or users of chemicals, with no more than one representative from each company. Click here to view Roles & Responsibilities of CCPS teams.

Note: Only logged-in CCPS members can view project statuses. They may also download the active project list in MS Word format by clicking here (please wait a few seconds for the download to start after clicking this link).

Project 261: Translation of CCPS Books into Portuguese

Proposal: Process safety is emerging as a focus and competency in the Brazil. Industrial growth in this area has increased the need and desire to share information and lessons learned from companies and industries that have been involved from catastrophic incidents. Translation of CCPS Books into Mandarin will increase access to valuable information. Benefits: expand CCPS’ global presence and share process safety information.

Project 246: Guidelines for Facility Siting and Layout, 2nd Edition

This project would revise and update the current CCPS publication “Guidelines for Facility Siting and Layout”, including information on occupied portable buildings, facility and plant layout. Reference documents would include but not limited to API 752 and 753 as well as OSHA/EPA interpretation letters and recently published CCPS books touching on this subject.

Project 250: Process Safety in Capital Projects

Use a project timeline to guide the reader through the issues of ensuring PS is included at each step(gate) of an engineering project. It will have case studies & incidents for emphasis. It will follow RBPS elements, provide templates for various “gate reviews”, and will lean heavily on GL’s for design, siting, consequence modeling and other

Project 242: Student Handbook for Process Safety

This project will include the development and evaluation of tools for application of process safety principles throughout the standard chemical engineering curriculum in addition to, or as an alternative to, adding a new specific process safety course.

Project 251: Process Safety in Pilot Plants and Laboratories

This project will develop and publish a book providing advisory guidance on process safety for laboratories and pilot plants, where laboratories are defined as specially designed research or manufacturing area where relatively small quantities of materials are used, and pilot plants are small-scale manufacturing facilities to systematically evaluate process steps under conditions simulating a full production unit, validate lab research, and/or simulate full scale plant production. The current version of NFPA 45 (2011) clearly draws a distinction between laboratories and pilot plants, but does...

Project 247: Integrating Management Systems and Metrics to Improve Process Safety

The purpose of this Guideline is to tie the use of metrics into integrated EH&SS management systems, integrating PSM and looking at how metrics are used throughout an organization. It should show how metrics can be used as a regular “Check” part of the Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle and the use of metrics to drive more robust and sustainable practices in management review and audits.
