DEVELOPMENT OF AN EMERGENCY RESPONSE MANAGEMENT COURSE INTEGRATED IN AN ADVANCED MASTER EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMME

Within essenscia, the Delta Process Academy (DPA) platform coordinates three initiatives in close collaboration with our important stakeholders. First, by together with the KU Leuven Department of Chemical Engineering, DPA funds and coordinates an Advanced Master of Safety Engineering , elements of which are part of the regular Master programme in Chemical Engineering. Secondly an intensive process safety module have been developed aiming at experienced engineers starting out in process safety and at managers of chemical companies. Thirdly, the Advanced Master of Safety Engineering is expanded with 3 ECTS emergency management programme for students and industry workers.

The Advanced Master of Safety Engineering, as organized at the University of Leuven, did not include an emergency management course. Specialist knowledge on emergency management is indispensable in engineering and for the elaboration and implementation of a process safety management system. So, the aim is not to create a comprehensive Advanced Programme on Emergency Management. The project is limited to integrating an Emergency Management Module in the Advanced Master Programme on Process Safety mainly to create awareness and baseline academic knowledge. Hence, one of the most important boundary conditions is the limited lecture time, resulting in a limited number of scenarios and topics that can be discussed in depth.

The introduction of the Seveso directive states the following on emergency planning: ‘To prepare for emergencies, in the case of establishments where dangerous substances are present in significant quantities, it is necessary to establish internal and external emergency plans and to establish procedures to ensure that those plans are tested and revised as necessary and implemented in the event of a major accident or the likelihood thereof’.

The methodology of the curriculum building together with the results will be discussed.
