Abstract German translation of: A guide to hazard and operability studies, 1977. Chemical Industry Safety and Health Council of the Chemical Industries Association, Alembic House, 93 Albert Embankment, London SE1 7TU, United Kingdom. A method for incident prevention based on forecasting, cause detection, assessment of effects, and precautions, is presented. Systematic and critical analysis of the technical features and design of new equipment allows the possible hazards due to errors or faulty operation and the resulting effects to be assessed. The control principles are set out (basic concept, definitions, model example, use of keywords) with the different phases of execution: definition of the problem, composition of control team, evaluation of results, report. Advice is given on control in the phases of starting up the plant. Appendices: glossary, practical applications, training and introduction to the method.
