(91c) Experimental Safety Plan (ESP) for Safety Management in Chemical Engineering Research
We will discuss a rigorous approach to documentation and training as well as methods for analyzing the hazards of experiments and surroundings to benefit research safety. This system of research experiment management using the Experimental Safety Plan (ESP) approach challenges the stakeholders to consider hazards of their experimental work, consequences of a hazardous situation and methods to mitigate the risks. We will also discuss the history of laboratory and research accidents, the benefits to safety, quality and research documentation and methodology of Experimental Safety Plan used at NMSUâs Chemical Engineering Department. This method will also be compared with guidelines given by the Department of Labor in 29 CFR 1910.1410 Occupational Exposure to Hazardous Chemicals in Laboratories.
