This paper is one in a series of several Major Industrial Hazards Advisory Papers (MIHAPs) developed by the MHU. It has been developed to assist Operators of MHFs in meeting their obligations with respect to hazard identification, risk assessment and risk control
Key Messages The key messages for Operators with respect to hazard identification, risk assessment and risk control described in this paper are: • Hazard identification, risk assessment and risk control are fundamental to the prevention of major accidents. If they are seriously deficient, then subsequent stages (e.g. safety reporting, safety management, etc.) will be deficient. • Hazard identification is the basis for understanding what can go wrong at a major hazard facility and for controlling risks. • Risk control measures critical to safe operation are only understood if there is a clear link between identified hazards, accident scenarios and the risk assessment. • Analysis of risk requires an understanding of the consequences and likelihood of major accidents. • There are a range of systematic and structured techniques that can assist Operators in hazard identification and risk assessment. The techniques selected by the Operator must be fit-for-purpose and based on the nature of the activities and materials handled.
