The purpose of plant safety and hazardous incident prevention is to prevent malfunctions in plants where hazardous substances are handled. Should an incident occur, then the objective it to minimise its impact on people and the environment.
When planning a new plant, we assess how and to what extent the identified hazards can be avoided or minimised. Safety measures need to be implemented in order to control any remaining risks. We differentiate between primary and secondary measures, and the focus is on primary safety and prevention measures. These are put in place to prevent malfunctions or operating interruptions having a serious impact, e.g. hazardous substances being emitted. To prevent this happening special safety features and devices are installed throughout the plant, for example automatic cut-out switches. These devices and installations limit the effect of potential malfunctions to a level that can be controlled. These features include protective walls, pressure relief systems and fire protection measures.
