How to deal with occupational health in process engineering – From the inherently safer design perspective.
Dr Mimi Hassim obtained a Masters of Science in Advanced Process Engineering from Loughborough University (UK) and his PhD from Aalto University School of Science and Technology, Finland.
She is an Associate Professor at the School of Chemical and Energy Engineering, Universiti Teknologi (Malaysia). She is also an active member of the executive committee of the Malaysian Industrial Hygiene Association (MIHA). Her main research is about occupational health and industrial hygiene concerning chemical process industries. She also works a lot on fugitive emissions, which is the main source of background exposure that can impair workers’ health in process industries. In relation to this, she is involved in sustainable process development and multi-criteria decision making with the ultimate aim to design and provide a healthier workplace to the workers.
She has been the author of more than 200 publications in various high impact journals and books. She was the former general secretary of the Malaysian Young Scientist Network and an active alumnus of the Global Young Academy.
