( Chemical Engineering : Process safety )
Hazard analysis is used as the first step in a process used to assess risk.
In quantitative hazard analysis, we attempt to determine the likelihood of an adverse event occurring, and the potential
cost in terms of injuries, financial loss, etc.
Hazard analysis is the process of deciding what might be a hazard, and what should be done if someone
or something is exposed to this hazard.
