Jump Start Process Safety Engineering Education: A How-To Workshop

Sunday, November 13, 2016, 8:00am-5:00pm PST

Workshop Room: Yosemite B (Hilton San Francisco Union Square)

Integration of process safety engineering into the curricula has evolved since 1984 and now is a required topic for all accredited chemical engineering departments.  This one-day workshop discusses the breadth and depth of approaches and materials available.  The purpose is to catalyze integration of process safety by providing diverse perspectives, approaches, outcomes and available materials from which participants can draw upon for their personal and department curricula development.  Example presentations will range from a 1 credit hour course, to a three credit hour course, through self-taught and online approaches.  Participants will leave with an understanding of the required outcomes, the necessary lecture topics, the resources available, and the various ways to achieve integration of process safety engineering into their curricula.
