Process Safety

A disciplined framework for managing the integrity of operating systems and processes handling hazardous substances by applying good design principles, engineering, and operating practices.

Note: Process Safety focuses on efforts to reduce process safety risks associated with processes handling hazardous materials and energies.  Process Safety efforts help reduce the frequency and consequences of potential incidents.  These incidents include toxic or flammable material releases (loss events), resulting in toxic effects, fires, or explosions.  The incident impact includes harm to people (injuries, fatalities), harm to the environment, property damage, production losses, and adverse business publicity.
