SAFETY MANAGEMENT IN PLANNING
During the planning stage, as by standard practice the designers optimize the system in the areas of their own competence, through correct application of the standards in force and adequate design criteria that take the aspects of health, safety and environment into account. The possibility of using a system in absolute safety assumes that the system itself is safe in its design and manufacture according to the foremost concepts on health and safety for users and the community, environment protection and care for material goods.
The first requirement to be met by a system in order to be regarded as safe is that it is well designed; in fact, it is during the design stage that the bases are set for optimizing the characteristics of safety and environmental compatibility. The planning activities consist of evaluations, studies and verifications regarding:
- Environmental compatibility
- Safety of works
- Specific aspects for the health and safety of workers
- Compliance with standards and laws
Among the activities, the following assume particular importance:
- qualification and achievement of the safety and environmental requirements through design
- risk analysis
- environmental impact study
- study of the process diagrams through the application of a coded procedure. This allows finding out the system’s response to deviations in process parameters and therefore bringing about the necessary design remedies
- Studies aiming to analyze the safety and environmental problems associated to particular systems, in order to support the engineering choices.
- Multi-disciplinary re-examination for the purpose of assuring that the planning activity is carried out in adherence of the set safety values, by verifying the deviation response and detecting the necessary design adjustments
