Abstract

One of the critical aspects of an effective reactive chemicals program in the chemical processing industries is the management of our technical and project information. With the continuing evolution of electronic tools for the generation, storage, and retrieval of this technical information, we have new opportunities to improve management of process safety information.

New approaches in the documentation of reactive chemicals information are described. The documentation method is based upon a ‘living’ project file organized along process unit operations. The project file captures the project safety information in an ‘information mapped’ format. The format provides a simple means to document issue definition, relevant data and information, application of information to resolve the issue, and lines of defense and prevention.
