Process Hazard Analysis (PHA) and Hazard and Operability (HAZOP) are a requirement for our industry. In the USA, these processes are mandated by Process Safety Management (PSM) and OSHA (OSHA 29 Part 1910.119). The names vary around the world but the goal is always the same…prevent the release of high hazardous chemicals. PSM is an evergreen activity that must be revisited with each change (management of change or MOC) in the plant. Properly identifying the risks and control strategies for those risks is critical to the safety, reliability and profitability of the facility.
The PHA and HAZOP team can identify failure mechanisms, the risk (probability and consequence) of the failure scenario, and mitigation strategies. The success of the team depends on the experience and imagination of the participants to think beyond the obvious and explore the potential for something to go wrong.
