The NAPTA Series for Process Technology can be used independently and does not require NAPTA participation.

The national standard for the safety, health, and environmental issues of process technology
Safety, Health, and Environment is part of the NAPTA Series for Process Technology. Developed in partnership with Industry and Education, this unprecedented collection supports a consistent curriculum and exit competencies for process technology graduates. Safety, Health, and Environment provides a common national standard for the safety, health, and environment course of a process technology degree program, while serving as a valuable reference guide. The 2nd edition has been thoroughly updated and revised to align with the new NAPTA curriculum.
