Process safety education of future employee 4.0 in Industry 4.0

Process safety education of future employee 4.0 in Industry 4.0 Agnieszka Gajek, Bruno Fabiano, André Laurent, Niels Jensen Abstract: The term "Industry 4.0′′, which refers to a fourth industrial revolution, is a recent neologism. The rise of digital technology including, artificial intelligence, the Internet of things and networks, "smart" and responsive devices, etc ... is more and more omnipresent. In solving the related challenges of Industry 4.0, it is necessary to improve the involvement and training of employers and employees. This is particularly true for their education in process safety. Two surveys were submitted to the relevant stakeholders. Their results showed absence of Industry 4.0 topics in the current courses on process safety. On the other hand, a review of the master's degree programs available in Europe revealed the recent emergence of new highly specialized courses in some of the topics of Industry 4.0. The definition of "Safety 4.0′′ leads to recommend two potential global training pathways, with one corresponding to the requirements of Industry 4.0 & Safety 4.0 intersections, recommended within the frame-work of pedagogical taxonomy models.
