Introduction • Defining safety through design • Integrating hazard analysis and risk assessment methods early in the design and redesign process and taking the actions necessary so that the risks of injury or damage are at an acceptable level. Areas Facility, hardware, equipment, materials, layout, energy control etc. 2 Model • A pre­thought, Not an afterthought Project Conception Design Design Build Retrofit Operate, Maintain Eliminate Retire Ease of integrating safety Cost of integrating safety 3 Benefits of Safety through Design • Reduction in injuries, illness, and damage to the environment • Productivity will be improved • Operating cost will be reduced • Retrofitting to correct design will be avoided 4 Principles and Definition • • • • • Acceptable Risk ALARP Safety and Risk Probability and Severity Risk Assessment Page 7 5 2.
