Process Hazard Analysis
Comprehensive Process Hazard Analysis: Your Safety, Our Priority
A PHA study is a thorough, orderly, systematic approach for identifying, evaluating, and controlling potential hazards within a process involving chemicals such as ammonia.
It is designed to analyze the potential causes and consequences of fire, explosions, releases of toxic or flammable chemicals, and major spills of hazardous chemicals. By examining the equipment, instrumentation, utilities, human actions, and external factors that may impact the process, the PHA study provides information that can assist the facility in making decisions for improving safety and reducing the risk of a release.
Every five years you are required to revalidate your Process Hazard Analysis. A PHA is also required when new equipment is installed or when modifying an existing system. In such an event HCG can assist in leading the Management of Change (MOC) PHA study to ensure any potential hazards and risks are examined.
HCG Associates’ PHA leaders have expertise in hazard analysis methodologies and a thorough understanding of the ammonia refrigeration process and equipment.
Working with the Best
It is important to note that an experienced HCG Process Hazard Analysis leader possesses a wealth of knowledge and skills in the area of ammonia refrigeration systems. This expertise is crucial for guiding the Process Hazard Analysis team through a comprehensive analysis, with a focus on ensuring the safety of the facility, its employees, and the surrounding community. HCG leaders have spent years working in the field, acquiring valuable insights and practical experience, which are invaluable for conducting a thorough and effective analysis.
