Process Safety Gap Assessment

A process Safety Gap Assessment is carried out to understand gaps in 100 % inherently safe virtual design against actual process design at site.
Although, this assessment is not intended to fully undertake a Process safety gap assessment the miniature analysis can be carried out to understand weather the full exercise is required at site or not.
A process safety gap analysis involves identification of deviations that can lead to

2. Ignition of flammable atmosphere
3. Exposure to personnel, unintentional loss of environment due to
One such example questionnaire for verifying the above is provided below:
1. Weather the pressure relief system design is adequate or not in terms of
