The Leading Guide To Process Safety Now Extensively Updated For Today’s Processes And Systems

As chemical processes have grown more complex, so have the safety systems required to prevent accidents. Chemical Process Safety, Third Edition,offers students a more fundamental and engineering science based understanding of safety and the application required to safely design and manage today’s sophisticated processes.

The third edition continues the definitive standard of the previous editions. The content has been extensively updated to today’s fundamentals, techniques and procedures, and two new chapters have been added. A new chapter on chemical reactivity provides the information necessary to identify, characterize, control, and manage reactive chemical hazards. A new chapter on safety procedures and designs includes new content on safely management, and specific procedures including hot work permits, lock-tag-try, and vessel entry.


  • New chapter on Chemical Reactivity
  • New chapter on Safe Design Features and Procedures
  • Extensively updated content including 427 equations
  • Over 400 numerically based homework problems
  • Power Point Slides and an instructor's solutions manual available for course use

New to This Edition

This revision adds new material but also removes some material that has not been used much. The material added includes a completely new chapter on chemical reactivity. This issue has become very important to industry and chemical engineering practice due to a number of large accidents. The authors also have consolidated some material that was scattered throughout the text into a new chapter on Safe Design Features and Procedures. They have also added some new content here on procedures, since this was never covered in any previous editions of the text. They deleted the existing chapter on accident investigations - the design content contained in there has been moved to the new chapter on Safe Design Features and Procedures.
