(219a) Industrial Safety Curriculum for Chemical Engineering Education
This Industrial Safety Course explores a wide range of safety topics to ensure that students receive an awareness of various types of major hazards. They need to understand the purpose of Process Safety Management (PSM) and how it applies to industry. Other regulations are addressed to highlight requirements for industry and to serve as guidance on best practices. Emphasis on hazard identification and risk analysis methods are used to ensure that students develop a mindset of recognizing dangerous situations, considering the frequency that hazards occur and developing approaches to mitigate hazards.
Real world examples from Chemical Safety Board (CSB) videos, reference materials and instructor experience bring these ideas to life. NMSU utilizes two project scenarios, one as an individual and one as a small group, during the course to allow students evaluate what they have learned and present it to a larger audience. Hazard recognition and risk analysis of these project scenarios are developed and presented along with engineering calculations for safety systems.
