This course presents a framework for managing process safety in the laboratory, building upon the concepts in ELA954 - Laboratory Safety.  ELA986 is the second course in a two-course series (ELA982 and ELA986) that describe how to manage process safety in the lab.  The CCPS Risk Based Process Safety (RBPS) model serves as the foundation for managing lab process safety.  The two courses, Managing Lab Process Safety 1 and 2, each consist of two Units, with each Unit describing the application of one of the pillars of RBPS to lab safety.  The final two pillars of RBPS (Manage Risk and Learn from Experience) and their application to lab safety management are covered in this course.  The first two pillars of RBPS are covered in ELA982 - Managing Lab Process Safety 1
