Safety centre

The IChemE Safety Centre has been launched to:

  • review and reset the strategic direction of safety within IChemE
  • align with and deliver on the IChemE’s technical strategy - Chemical Engineering Matters
  • build on inherent strength of expertise and range of activities


IChemE has over 90 years of experience in driving to improve process safety performance and believes that every person in an organisation has responsibility for managing risks which are clearly defined by their role. 

The concept of a dedicated IChemE Safety Centre was born out of this drive, where IChemE’s extensive range of safety resources can be found in one place. Here you will find a range of products and services which will help you, your staff and your organisation as a whole to improve safety, promote safe working and ensure the appropriate management of risks.

Becoming a member of the IChemE Safety Centre will also give you access to the ISC Leadership Forum, a steering group of experienced professionals whose safety expertise will drive forward future guidelines and process safety products and services produced by IChemE.
