Electrical safety in the industrial process plant plays an important role to ensure overall safety of the chemical plant, but most of the time this subject has been largely ignored leading to major accidents in the plant. Due to this reason, many researchers find that it is important to understand completely the electrical system to avoid any accident in the plant. Hazard and Operability (HAZOP) analysis tool is widely used as qualitative tool to identify potential hazards that can cause major accidents in the plant, while the Fault Tree Analysis (FTA) method is widely used to estimate the probability of occurrences of the hazards. However, they have never been implemented vigorously to identify potential hazards due to electrical equipment and system failure. Thus, the main objective of this project is to provide a framework for systematic investigation of the problems in process plant due to electrical equipment and system failure. This project consists of analysis that is done to complement the need for detailed study of the electrical hazard. The analysis will include both qualitative HAZOP analysis approach to identify the possible hazards and a quantitative FTA assessment to rank the hazardous event accordingly for direct implementation in industrial case study. The tools developed will provide a detail review of chemical plant safety focusing on electrical equipments and system design. At the end of the study, the analysis will help to provide suggestion to improve the design, installation, operation and maintenance procedures in order to optimize the safety and operability in the plant. iv
