Process safety is part of the overall safety of process plants
Process safety management (PSM) aims at preventing production or operational major accidents, equipment damage, production interruptions, and harmful emissions. Process safety accidents are less common, but their consequences are, at worst, extremely serious and costly damages to people, the environment, property as well as the company brand.
The key to ensuring process safety
Technical understanding of the processes and functions of a plant is the key to ensuring process safety in any industry dealing with materials with hazardous properties and subject to major accident hazards.
How can AFRY help?
AFRY’s safety experts have a deep technical background and safety assessments led by experienced experts detect the possible HSE risks in practices, procedures, or technical solutions. The efforts that are undertaken to improve the safety of facilities are often aimed at finding the right technical solution first. Human behaviour and organisational leadership are equally important and need to be addressed.
AFRY provides various safety services related to process safety. For example, HAZOP (Hazard and Operability Study) and SIL (Safety integrity level) analyses, HEA (Human error analysis), and consequence analyses are the core expertise of our experts. Our experts also carry out risk analyses related to explosive atmospheres (ATEX), including explosion and ignition risk analyses. Process safety management (PSM) development services offer a comprehensive expert view of process safety of the plant.
