The undergraduate process safety learning initiative is a global initiative that will define how the next generation of chemical engineers are prepared to enter the workforce. A core priority of our ‘Doing a World of Good’ campaign’ the program incorporates process safety training into the chemical engineering curricula at universities throughout the world in order to ensure that every chemical engineering graduate has a working knowledge of process safety. Although companies have extensive safety training programs, experience has shown that presenting process safety concepts as part of the chemical engineering curriculum proves most effective.
The ultimate goal is to have 100% of graduating bachelor-degree chemical engineers to be trained and knowledgeable about process safety by passing the required SAChE certificates and demonstrating a certain level of training in process safety.
The Undergraduate Process Safety Learning Initiative is a multi-pronged effort that will benefit companies, students, universities, and, ultimately, society, and concentrates in three primary areas: (1) online curricula through SAChE, (2) faculty competence through workshops, and (3) student competence through undergraduate process safety bootcamps.
