Process Hazard Analysis Software

In today’s corporate environment, ensuring compliance with safety regulations can be a daunting task. OSHA’s Process Safety Management (PSM) of Highly Hazardous Chemicals standard (29 CFR 1910.119), the EU’s Seveso III Directive and the UK’s Control of Major Accident Hazards regulations (COMAH) all include requirements for the management of hazards associated to processes using highly hazardous chemicals. As part of a PSM program, companies must perform a Process Hazard Analysis (PHA) to identify process hazards with the potential of adversely affecting workers, property or the environment.

The goal of a PHA is to detect and analyze potential causes and consequences of fires, explosions, toxic or flammable chemicals releases and major hazardous chemical spills. The information generated helps organizations improve overall safety and minimize the consequences of unwanted or unplanned releases of hazardous chemicals. Processes that require hazard analyses must be identified and organizations must mitigate risks from multiple processes.

The Enablon Process Hazard Analysis solution allows companies to perform centralized and efficient analyses, as well as save time and costs. It also helps corporations evaluate and track risks identified during a PHA, improve safety and ensure compliance.

Standardize and centralize process hazard analyses across the organization, identify safety risks, and streamline your process safety management program.
