Process safety, or Process Safety Management, focuses on preventing catastrophic accidents, particularly fires, explosions and toxic releases associated with the manufacture, storage and use of hazardous chemicals and petroleum products. It consists of a blend of engineering and management practices designed primarily to maintain plant integrity and prevent the loss of containment of the hazardous materials, or energies associated with the processing and handling of those materials.
