Inherently safer design concepts can be applied to plant layout and facility siting. Passive and inherently safer plant layout design practices can lessen the adverse effects of accidental releases of toxic and flammable materials and runaway reactions, as well as minimize knock-on effects. The consequences of explosion, fire and toxic release hazards to building occupants can be reduced through building siting and design. Certain locations around process units are inherently safer than others. Likewise, certain types of construction and design practices make some buildings inherently safer than others. This paper will discuss appropriate inherently safer practices and illustrate with examples.
