Prosa21: A survey targeting practitioners of process safety

Knowledge of process safety is relevant for a broad range of systems in industry and society, where loss of containment of hazardous materials, fires, and explosions represent a hazard to people, property, and the environment.

FABIG Member, University of Bergen (UiB), is currently conducting a survey where the main objective is to explore global practices, trends, and priorities related to process safety, with a view to promote sharing of knowledge and best practices between stakeholders.

All practitioners of process safety, from academia to the labour market, are invited to complete the survey. The survey is self-activating, and can be accessed by clicking here.

It takes 15-30 minutes to complete the survey, depending on the efforts spent the optional open-ended questions.

The survey will remain active until Friday 31 May 2024, and the results will be presented at the ISHPMIE conference in Naples on 10-14 June 2024.

Process safety is an interdisciplinary subject, and a comprehensive syllabus would cover a wide range of topics, from basic physical and chemical phenomena to complex and increasingly automated industrial systems, designed and operated by humans.

Process safety is also an applied subject that evolves with the development of society, and many of the principles for achieving safe operation in the process industry apply equally well to coal mines, nuclear facilities, and emerging technologies for production, storage, transport, and use of energy carriers such as hydrogen, ammonia, and batteries.

The global nature of the process industry implies a need for standardising the process safety curriculum. At the same time, the process industry in a country or region is likely to reflect the natural resources and the level of technological development.

The time allocated to process safety in the overall syllabus can vary significantly between universities and study programs, and the competence and experience of the academic staff may influence teaching practices and priorities.

To this end, the aim of the Prosa21 survey is to gather and share input from academia and the labour market, in various countries, and explore similarities and differences concerning global practices, trends, and priorities.
