Process hazard analysis overview

Process hazard analysis is a thorough, orderly, systematic approach for identifying, evaluating, and controlling hazards in your company’s processes involving highly hazardous chemicals.

A crucial part of a process safety management program is a thorough investigation of incidents. By identifying the chain of events and finding the root cause, corrective measures can be developed and implemented quickly.

FLNG requires the investigation of each incident that resulted in, or could reasonably have resulted in, a catastrophic release of a highly hazardous chemical in the workplace.

The investigation team should be made up of at least one person who is knowledgeable in the process and others with appropriate knowledge and experience to investigate the incident thoroughly. It is recommended that the investigation be initiated as promptly as possible.

The incident report

An incident report should include the following:

  • The date of the incident
  • The date investigation started
  • A description of the incident (factors that contributed to the incident, and recommendations resulting from the investigation.)
  • The system implemented to promptly address and resolve the incident report findings and recommendations.

The organization should keep the incident investigation reports for 5 years. Any resolutions and corrective actions should be documented and reviewed by all affected personnel whose job tasks are relevant to the incident findings (including contract employees when applicable).
