2021 Dow Sponsored Virtual CCPS Faculty Workshop

This Faculty Process Safety Workshop, sponsored by Dow, showed chemical engineering faculty how process safety is put into industrial practice and demonstrated the importance of process safety to the design and operation of a chemical plant.  


  • Wednesday, June 9:  4 hours of the virtual workshop (9AM - 1PM Eastern Time)
  • Thursday, June 10: 4 hours of the virtual workshop (9AM - 1PM Eastern Time)


Industrial Focus:

1. Demonstrate process safety concepts through personal case study examples/stories. 

2. What industry does in process safety and why.

3. Industrial importance of process safety

Facilitator Focus:

1. Methods to teach process safety.

2. Resources available for teaching process safety, including AICHE resources.

3. Networking with other faculty.


1. Faculty share what they heard instead of just waiting to ask a question.

2. Sharing in small groups followed by larger group common sharing. 


  • Gain expertise in process safety issues
  • Participate in industry-related safety case studies
  • Learn how to incorporate process safety to your existing Chemical Engineering curriculum 

The workshop will enable faculty to teach process safety in their undergraduate and graduate curricula so that graduating students will have a basic understanding of process safety for their careers in industry. 

This program is run by AIChE’s Center for Chemical Process Safety (CCPS).
