Creating Culture: Your Path to Safety Education using SAChE

The mindset of attention to safety is an essential perspective that students must have in order to be properly prepared for professional practice – regardless of career path. Recent ABET requirements in process safety now mandate undergraduate instruction in this important area, and renewed attention to safety in research labs has come after recent high profile accidents. This session will include a discussion of an offshore oil and gas incident that demonstrates the need for improvements in safety. The SAChE Committee of AIChE/CCPS develops classroom materials that are useful for relating safety concerns to students throughout the undergraduate curriculum in traditional lecture courses. SAChE product topics range from lessons learned from past accident case studies to an introduction to biosafety.
Creating a culture to promote positive behavior in safety (and other areas) is essential. Approaches to establishing a safety culture and the associated benefits will be highlighted as well as issues created by failing to do so. Pointers are provided for promoting a culture of safety.
