A new free interactive case study to help chemical engineering undergraduate students in conducting laboratory experiments more safely has been produced by the Institution of Chemical Engineers (Icheme)’s Safety Centre.
Rugby/UK — The Laboratory Experiment case study and the associated guidance document Sample University Laboratory Process Safety Management System have been developed to help better equip engineering students with operational process safety knowledge and how to practically apply it.
It has been made freely available to lecturers and university students to help improve process safety education and create a safer environment in education laboratories.
The Icheme Safety Centre’s suite of interactive case studies are animated video training resources that put process safety professionals in the driving seat. They allow users to experience an incident without prior knowledge of the outcome. Users are required to make crucial safety decisions in several scenarios helping them to understand how these decisions can impact on the outcome of the incident.
Laboratory Experiment is the first case study of its kind to focus on laboratory-based incidents.
