This second edition of a bestseller provides a well-illustrated resource that comprehensively covers the design of inherently safer and user-friendly plants. The book demonstrates how chemical plants can withstand human error and equipment failures without serious effects on safety, output, or efficiency. This edition features new chapters that outline the role of inherently safer design in explosion prevention and mitigation and the link between inherently safer design and process safety design. New sections address the hierarchy of controls and highlight human factors in determining risk. The text also includes case studies that review major process incidents.
