Guidance for Facility Siting and Revalidation

Facility siting and revalidation are critical components in managing process safety and risk in oil, gas and chemical facilities. This process hazard analysis (PHA) element is also a requirement of process safety management regulations and accidental release prevention programs. Knowing how to plan for and mitigate explosion, fire and toxic hazards can help you comply with recommended industry practices for safer facilities and protect your license to operate.

With more than 40 years of process safety experience, ABS Group has compiled the following information resources to help you understand the latest facility siting and revalidation guidelines.
