Title Determination of hazard and safety analysis in chemical engineering
Original title Risikoermittlung und Sicherheitsanalysen in der chemischen Technik [in German]
Bibliographic information Sep. 1980, Vol.52, No.9, p.703-711. Illus. 30 ref.
Abstract Definition of technical hazards and their evaluation; description of 2 hazard analysis methods (theoretical analysis method and empirical method) and their respective advantages in chemical installations. Neither method gives more than a mere estimation of the hazard, and only the empirical method is trustworthy. The theoretical analysis method is justified only in the case of new technology. Use of safety analysis is now well established in the chemical industry, and has resulted in a low incidence of occupational accidents (1% of total risk).
