Non-Scenario-Based Hazard Evaluation Procedures

“Group of techniques more appropriately used for performing general process hazard studies-usually early during the life of a process. These techniques (i.e., Preliminary Hazard Analysis, Safety Review, Relative Ranking, and Checklist Analysis) are efficient at taking a “broad brush” look at the inherent hazards of a large plant or complex process. Using these techniques before a process is commissioned can significantly improve the cost-effectiveness of subsequent safety improvement efforts.”
