A chemical engineering expert witness is needed for cases involving product safety, chemical plant safety, product development, chemical patents, and a variety of complex cases. Chemical engineer experts are knowledgeable about the industrial process of manufacturing chemicals and utilizing such elements in the design and creation of multiple products. As with any type of industry revolving around the study and use of chemicals, the field must strictly adhere to a certain set of codes and compliance, the violation of which may result in unsafe working conditions for employees, as well as hazardous products unfit for consumers, which would be grounds for possible litigation.
Environmental health and safety is a major factor in the chemical engineering industry, many chemical engineering expert witnesses are often experienced with promoting air quality by reducing the causes of air pollution when handling hazardous materials commonly used by chemical engineers. The means by which waste management is implemented may result in a lawsuit if the method were to fail in some manner, resulting in poor risk management and OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration )violations. Such experts may be licensed and/or certified as registered environmental managers or qualified environmental professionals.
A chemical engineering expert witness is also often experienced with chemical plant management because such facilities are utilized in the field. These workplace environments must prevent chemical spills/exposure, as well as other types of chemical accidents, by implementing the proper chemical process equipment. Workplace accidents, involving chemicals or otherwise, may lead to possible lawsuits.
