The Finnish pressure equipment legislation was recently renewed. According to the new legislation, a boiler plant hazard assessment must be carried out in certain boiler plants. The plant's owner and holder must identify potential hazards, their causes and consequences. Furthermore, the significance of the identified hazard scenarios and the appropriateness of the risk reduction measures and safety precautions must be assessed. All this, i.e. the description of the plant's hazard assessment process and its results, must be in the form of a written report to be presented to the inspection body for approval. The paper presents an approach to fulfil the requirement, and the experiences based on several projects carried out by VTT.
