In the chemical, petrochemical and most other industries, you will find that all companies are required to have an occupational safety program, with a focus on personal safety. The focus of these programs is to prevent harm to workers from workplace accidents such as falls, cuts, sprains and strains, being struck by objects, repetitive motion injuries, and so on. They are good and in fact, very necessary programs. They are not, however, what Process Safety is about.

Process Safety is defined as “a discipline that focuses on the prevention of fires, explosions, and accidental chemical releases at chemical process facilities”. Such events don't only happen at chemical facilities, they occur in refineries, petrochemicals, solid handling plants, water treatment plant, offshore drilling facilities, pharmaceuticals etc. Another definition is that:-

  • Risk management program establishment
  • Managing future safety program effectively
  • Compliance with standards
