We apply systematic methods in a pragmatic form to give clients or their regulators or other stakeholders, assurance that hazards have been identified and appropriate measures taken to :

·         Eliminate hazards wherever possible;

·         Substitute with less hazardous processes or materials wherever alternatives exist;

·         Reduce the quantities of hazardous materials or the energy involved to a realistic minimum;

·         Use low pressure and low temperatures conditions for process and any storage

·         Reduce consequences of accidents with passive or fixed physical barriers

·         Provide additional safety systems to reduce the frequency of accidents, and as a final barrier

·         Ensure all procedures for safety critical tasks have adequate safeguards, including information systems, training of competent staff and sufficient numbers to carry them out in a timely manner.

These are the fundamentals of INHERENT SAFETY applied to Process Systems Safety.
