Topic Process Safety Fundamentals and HAZOP

Under OSHA 1910.119 (e)(1), a Process Hazard Analysis (PHA)  has the following requirement:  “The employer shall perform an initial process hazard analysis (hazard evaluation) on processes covered by this standard. The process hazard analysis shall be appropriate to the complexity of the process and shall identify, evaluate, and control the hazards involved in the process. Employers shall determine and document the priority order for conducting process hazard analyses based on a rationale which includes such considerations as extent of the process hazards, number of potentially affected employees, age of the process, and operating history of the process.”

There is often confusion as to what comprises an appropriate hazard analysis with regard to the complexity of the process.  Of particular concern is the ability to identify, evaluate, and control the hazards involved in the process.
