Abstract : A systems approach to hazard identification, elimination and control has historically been applied primarily to the development of equipment. The Safety Office of the Chemical Research and Development Center (CRDC) has reviewed and evaluated the current facility safety posture to determine regulatory compliance and good engineering practices. To augment the effectiveness of facility design and construction review, a new systematic approach for early hazard identification, assessment, elimination and control for facilities was developed and implemented to alleviate these shortcomings in the future.
