Our roots are in Sharif University of Technology, one of the most renowned technical universities in Iran. We have close collaboration with Center for Process Design, Safety and Loss Prevention (CPSL-http://www.cpsl.ir) at the university. The Center was pioneered in 2000 by Dr. D. Rashtchian, a member of this team, and since then has been active under his supervision.
The Center has greatly contributed to introduction of modern process safety to the scientific community, as well as to the industry, taking into account its education and research aspects. Moreover, the majority of process safety specialists who have joined us have completed their research in the same Center, including several MSc and PhD research projects leading to ISI papers. The team was established by him and a number of his colleagues to extend the application of the techniques to industrial type projects.
The Center hosted the National Conference on Safety Engineering & HSE Management started in Feb. 2006, and now in its 5th round to be held March 2014. This conference is always sponsored by several large Iranian and international companies, including BP, DNV, Hydro, Shell, Statoil, TOTAL and TÜV.
Considering the scarcity of safety engineers who are familiar with the modern aspects of process safety and HSE-MS, our team has attracted and now houses rare contributors to these fields with various complementary experiences. These are categorized in the following areas:
Safety awareness development and training
Professional safety services in the engineering companies
Risk management software
Establishing Iran Safety Sciences Association (ISSA)
