The importance of continuous improvement is emphasized in this paper from the perspectives of process safety education in general and university process safety courses in particular. Feedback on concept familiarity from undergraduate and graduate students was used to adjust the learning outcomes developed for one such course. In this manner, the plan/do/check/act protocol utilized in industrial process safety management systems was applied to academia. The paper concludes with a brief examination of other means of continuous improvement, including forward visioning exercises and learning outcome/competency guidelines produced by technical organizations.
