    Abstract

    The aim of this work is to get a better view of total inherent safety by discussing the effect of offsite equipment selection on process safety in the preliminary process design. This has been done by including the equipment safety of offsite area into an inherent safety index. Equipment safety has been evaluated on the basis of layout recommendations and information about the types of equipment involved in large losses.
