An atmospheric pressure relief device discharge point or downstream destructive device (e.g. flare, scrubber)discharge point that results in a potential hazard, such as the formation of flammable, toxic or corrosive mixtures at grade level or on elevated work structures, or ignition of relief streams at the point of emission.ادامه مطلب
An individual or a group of people not aware that they were taking a risk, did not identify the hazard or were unaware of HSE requirements. The persons involved did not have sufficient awareness, training or competence to perform the tasks required in accordance with procedures, procedures were inadequate or were not properly implemented, no procedures available for the task.ادامه مطلب

Process safety is a disciplined framework for managing the integrity of operating systems and processes handling hazardous substances by applying good design principles, engineering, and operating and maintenance practices. It deals with the prevention and control of events with the potential to release hazardous materials and energy. Such releases can result in toxic effects, fire, explosion, and could ultimately result in serious incidents including fatalities, injuries, property damage, lost production and environmental damage.ادامه مطلب
Asset integrity is related to the prevention of major incidents. It is an outcome of good design, construction and operating practice. It is achieved when facilities are structurally and mechanically sound and perform the processes and produce the products for which they were designed.ادامه مطلب
The weight of gas, liquid, or solid material released
from an LOPC which, if exceeded, results in the event being recordable as either a Tier 1 or Tier 2 PSE. The threshold quantities are described more fully in API/ANSI standard RP 754 and follow the UNDG classification system.
