This project basically is done for hazardous precautions improvement. Hazardous area classification (HAC) is one of the methods in analyzing hazards into specific class due to the mode of the hazards occurred. Hazardous area can be defined as an area which an unstable gas atmosphere is presents in quantities and needed some special safety precautions. From the early stage of designing a plant, HAC has been developed but unfortunately, there is no improvisation consecutively to have a safer plant area. In order to attain a less harmful plant area, this project would propose the Inherent Safety approach to the HAC presented. Inherent Safety concept is an approach to chemical accident prevention that differs fundamentally from secondary accident prevention and accident mitigation. Encouraging the industrial firm to perform an inherent safety opportunity audit to identify where inherently safer technology is needed, a technology options analysis and to identify specific inherently safer options will advance the adoption of primary prevention strategies that will alter production systems so that there are less inherent safety risks. Based on the HAC framework that has been developed earlier, any method of Inherent Safety concept will then be implemented for a risky area improvement. The method might not suitable to be applied to all area, but it could somehow be appropriate for certain section only. For the area that could have a safer zone, the technique to handle any installation would be much better out of harm's way. With this way, certain plant region would be more secured towards the plant personnel.
