Faculty Perceptions of Process Safety Judgment Criteria
A Pilot Study
Process safety remains an area of importance in chemical engineering education. Process safety incidents are tied to individuals’ choices that require exercising judgement in weighing competing criteria. While safety is paramount, we need to acknowledge the competing criteria practitioners need to consider (budget, leadership, personal relationships, plant production, and time). Our work examines the relationship between individuals’ beliefs versus behavior in process safety decisions, and explores use of a process safety game as an intervention.
