Title A demonstration of the use of HAZCHECK and a systems example by an analysis of a recent refinery line accident
Bibliographic information June 1992, No.105, p.25-34. 5 ref.
Abstract The use of a computerised checklist, HAZCHECK, is described along with a new systems model which is presented as a standard against which any system can be compared. The method of analysis is illustrated in a study of a refinery line incident in which a fire of flammable liquids was released during maintenance of a refinery flare system. The use of HAZCHECK enabled a possible scenario for the incident to be modelled.
