Process Hazard Analysis

Upcoming Session : Bogor, 13-15 February 2013

A Process Hazards Analysis — or PHA — has two primary purposes. The first is to identify high-risk hazards associated with a chemical process — where a process is defined as any activity involving the use, storage, manufacture, handling or movement of chemicals. Once the high-risk hazards have been identified, corrective action can then be taken either to eliminate them or to minimize their impact.
The second purpose of a PHA is to create a way of thinking among all managers, employees and contract workers so that they will recognize process hazards during the normal course of their work. When an employee thinks and acts in this manner, the PHA program is working very well indeed. The same change in thought processes can sometimes be seen following a PHA, when an employee who knows a plant very well looks at the equipment and processes with fresh eyes — he or she will see the potential for accidents and losses in a new way.
