Process Hazard Analysis: An Introduction
This is an introduction to Process Hazard Analysis that discusses the definition of PHA, why PHAs are important, what is a hazard, general safety concepts, and fire concepts including jet fires, pool fires, vapor cloud explosions, BLEVEs, physical explosions, chemical explosions, deflagrations, detonations, LFL/UFL, etc. Pictures of fires and explosions are also included.
The PowerPoint presentation can be used as a presentation to a group or as a self directed study (or homework). The product could be used in a university (in a design or safety course, for example) or in an industrial training setting as an orientation session for new engineers. Further information regarding PHAs can be found in the accompanying 2009 SAChE product “Process Hazard Analysis: Process and Examples”.
