Elements of Process Safety

The four pillars and the twenty elements of risk based process safety can be designed and implemented at varying levels of rigor to optimize process safety management, performance, efficiency, and effectiveness.

Guidelines for Chemical Process Quantitative Risk Analysis, 2nd Edition

October, 1999
Chemical process quantitative risk analysis (CPQRA) as applied to the CPI was first fully described in the first edition of this CCPS Guidelines book. This second edition is packed with information reflecting advances in this evolving methodology, and includes worked examples on a CD-ROM. CPQRA is...

RELEASE: A Model with Data to Predict Aerosol Rainout in Accidental Releases

March, 1998
This book documents CCPS's Aerosol Research Program to develop a model to predict liquid rainout from release of a pressurized, liquefied gas--and, hence the residual amount of material in a vapor cloud, which may be greater than the amount calculated from an enthalpy chart. RELEASE predicts the...

Dow's Fire & Explosion Index Hazard Classification Guide, 7th Edition

June, 1994
This popular safety best-seller is designed to help the user quantify the expected damage of potential fire and explosion incidents in realistic terms, identify the equipment likely to contribute to the creation or escalation of an incident, and communicate the fire and explosion risk potential to...

Decoding Safety Data Sheets

Ronald J. Willey
A safety data sheet holds a wealth of information that can help you safely and effectively handle chemicals in the lab, at the pilot scale, and on the production floor.

Nitrogen — Hazard and Safeguard

Process Safety Beacon
This Beacon is not focused on a single incident, but on incidents that continue to occur across industry — nitrogen asphyxiation.
