Inherently Safer Design (ISD) takes a proactive approach to process safety, aiming to prevent hazards from entering manufacturing processes rather than merely manage them. Students who take this advanced course will come to understand ISD as a way of thinking rather than a specific tool. The course covers all aspects of ISD, from basic concepts and approaches to challenges in practical application.
Students will learn to evaluate hazard reduction and ISD principles as well as use the Management of Change (M-O-C) PSM element to incorporate and maintain ISD changes in proposed process changes. Last, students taking this course will acquire knowledge of which ISD approaches may be most effective at different stages of a process life cycle.
This course may be taken as part of the AIChE Credential for Sustainability Professionals (ACSP). More info
