We are delighted to be able to offer this course now ONLINE, this two-day course will be divided up into four sessions using an online platform, dates and times are as follows and set in BST (British Summer Time):

Monday 17 April  | 2.00pm – 5.00pm BST
Tuesday 18 April | 2.00pm – 5.00pm BST
Wednesday 19 April  | 2.00pm – 5.00pm BST
Thursday 20 April  | 2.00pm – 5.00pm BST

The safety of chemical processes is critical for the whole chemical industry. It is vital that process development chemists and engineers are able to identify aspects of the chemistry that may be hazardous or pose a risk to the safety of the process or equipment.

In order to do this, they need to know when to proactively engage colleagues or contractors to carry out process safety testing and hazard analysis, which in turn requires a knowledge of the equipment and test methods available.

As chemical reactions are scaled up and operations become more economic the ability to remove heat from exothermic events becomes reduced and at the same time the outcome of any incident becomes much more severe.

This is an almost unique course on the safety of chemical reactions and processes that are designed by chemists for chemists (and engineers) with the ultimate aim of helping the chemical industry reduce the number of chemical or process related incidents.
