BASF hosts the workshop to demonstrate the importance of chemical process safety and provide faculty the opportunity to view proper industrial processes in action. During the four-day workshop, 22 attendees from the U.S. and other countries gained expertise in process safety matters, participated in industry-related safety case studies and toured BASF facilities and laboratories in Wyandotte to learn more about implementing process safety solutions.
The workshop is facilitated by AIChE’s CCPS faculty who provided educators with tools to integrate process safety into curricula and prepare students for careers in the chemical engineering industry.
“Taking plant tours and hearing safety-related stories firsthand is really impactful,” said Emily Chiang, associate professor of Engineering at the University of Guelph in Ontario, Canada. “I feel inspired and equipped to combine safety into how I teach as an integral part of the course design.”
