THE CENTER FOR CHEMICAL PROCESS SAFETY (CCPS) was established by AIChE in 1985 to study and develop engineering and management practices that help prevent or mitigate catastrophic process safety accidents. CCPS publications provide the latest guidelines for the production, storage, and handling of flammable, explosive, and reactive materials. With the help of CCPS, companies can operate facilities safely and measure their own practices against today's most accepted industry practices.
