Preface to Introduction to Process Safety for Undergraduates and Engineers eBook


The Center for Chemical Process Safety (CCPS) was created by the AIChE in 1985 after the chemical disasters in Mexico City, Mexico, and Bhopal, India (Process Safety for Undergraduates and Engineers).

The CCPS is chartered to develop and disseminate technical information for use in the prevention of major chemical accidents.

The Center is supported by more than 180 chemical process industries (CPI) sponsors who provide the necessary funding and professional guidance to its technical committees.


The major product of CCPS activities has been a series of guidelines to assist those implementing various elements of a process safety and risk management system (Process Safety for Undergraduates and Engineers).

This Process Safety for Undergraduates and Engineers book is part of that series. The AIChE has been closely involved with process safety and loss control issues in the chemical and allied industries for more than five decades.

Through its strong ties with process designers, constructors, operators, safety professionals, and members of academia, AIChE has enhanced communications and fostered continuous improvement of the industry’s high safety standards.

AIChE publications and symposia have become information resources for those devoted to process safety and environmental protection (Process Safety for Undergraduates and Engineers).

The integration of process safety into the engineering curricula is an ongoing goal of the CCPS. To this end, CCPS created the Safety and Chemical Engineering Education (SACHE) committee which develops training modules for process safety.

One textbook covering the technical aspects of process safety for students already exists; however, there is no textbook covering the concepts of process safety management and the need for process safety for students.

The CCPS Technical Steering Committee initiated the creation of this Process Safety for Undergraduates and Engineers book to assist colleges and universities in meeting this challenge and to aid Chemical Engineering programs in meeting recent accreditation requirements for including process safety into the chemical engineering curricula.
