The advantages and constraints of safety analysis at the plant level are discussed, based mainly on the results of a hazard and operability study of a pulp process carried out at the plant level and compared with the results of a more detailed analysis. The general level safety analysis, which could be rapidly performed, identified the potential major hazards and the countermeasures required.To discover and analyse the causes of hazardous situation, however, requires that a more detailed hazard analysis is performed.
