Center for Chemical Process Safety

The Center for Chemical Process Safety (CCPS) brings together manufacturers, government agencies, consultants, academia and insurers to lead the way in improving industrial process safety. CCPS member companies, working in project subcommittees, define and develop useful, time-tested guidelines that have practical application within industry. The project topics run the gamut of areas important to manufacturers and range from human factor issues to qualitative and quantitative risk analysis to security vulnerability to inherently safer design.
