One of the most important activities that a chemical engineer participates in is the evaluation of the safety of a process system. What can go wrong? How bad would it be? What can be done to prevent the event from happening?
This presentation outlines several commonly used process safety review techniques used to answer these questions. The presentation includes Hazards and Operability Analysis(HAZOP), 'What Ifs', and Checklists. The presentation also presents an overview of more advanced techniques such as Layer of Protection Analysis (LOPA), and Consequence Analysis.
