Safety culture is essentially important in chemical engineering. Because many kinds of hazardous materials are under controlled in chemical facilities. If a severe accident happens, there is a risk for serious damage to employees and the residents of local communities. So our society needs to be assured about the safety and reliability of chemical plants. However the retirement of a skillful worker is advancing in Japan. For this reason, the expert’s knowledge and skill are lost, the immature young operator is increasing. As a result operators/workers cannot adequate correspond to abnormal situation in chemical plants. Safety training is important for operators to make a correct decision in emergency. The safety training system will be conveyed based on the training scenario. Therefore in this paper, we propose how to make scenarios for safety training system in chemical plant. The safety awareness of operators will improve by experiential training in case of non-steady situation. The scenarios in the safety training system explain the role-sharing arrangement of workers and plant condition. In order to build a reliable safety culture, mutual understanding and the sharing of safety information are important. Safety training that based on this scenario is useful for the transference of technology and safety knowledge.
