Abstract
To reduce the risk of serious chemical accidents to occur there is a legislation called the Seveso-legislation. One part of this legislation demands that all business that handle certain amounts of chemical compounds to submit a safety report in order to get permission to run their business.
The safety report should contain over-all plans of how to handle safety as well as detailed descriptions of several accident scenarios. If one wants to build a new chemical facility the safety report is supposed to be handed in when applying for a permit to run the operation. This often has to be done long in advance. The problem that this report focuses on is how to develop a safety report when you don’t know how the facility will look or operate.... (More)
To reduce the risk of serious chemical accidents to occur there is a legislation called the Seveso-legislation. One part of this legislation demands that all business that handle certain amounts of chemical compounds to submit a safety report in order to get permission to run their business.
The safety report should contain over-all plans of how to handle safety as well as detailed descriptions of several accident scenarios. If one wants to build a new chemical facility the safety report is supposed to be handed in when applying for a permit to run the operation. This often has to be done long in advance. The problem that this report focuses on is how to develop a safety report when you don’t know how the facility will look or operate. By examining and interpreting the legislation and conducting interviews with representatives from agencies and companies a possible solution is presented. The proposed solution is to produce a safety report in two steps. In the first step a preliminary safety report is developed and sent in to the authorities. The second is to continue to develop the safety report as planning and building progresses and more data about the facility becomes known. This way you can present a safety report in an early stage but one still have the opportunity to improve the safety report as information becomes available. One important part of this report is the attempt to find a minimum level of the information in a safety report. To know this is important to companies to make the application process more predictable and clear. It is important to remember to not stop the work on the safety report if step one gets accepted by the authorities, the safety could be at risk if one does not continue the work with the safety report.
