Appendix A of this Standard is informative.
This Standard was proposed by the State Administration of Work Safety.
This Standard shall be under the jurisdiction of the Subcommittee 3 on Chemicals of the National Technical Committee 288 on Safety Production of Standardization Administration of China (TC 288/SC 3).
Drafting organizations of this Standard. China Business Council for Sustainable Development, SINOPEC Research Institute of Safety Engineering (Qingdao), and Shanghai SECCO Petrochemical Company Limited.
Chief drafting staffs of this Standard. Zhai Qi, Zhang Haifeng, Jin Tao, Yang Xiaoping, Zhao Yaoli, and Ji Qing.
This Standard is issued for the first-time.
Petrochemical industry is a high risk industry; all countries, corporations, international or geographical organizations are actively summarizing and searching the safety modes and methods for corporation management. In recent years, as the increasing of foreign sole-venture and joint-venture projects, the management modes and practices of international corporations with outstanding achievements in safety and environmental protection had been known, used for reference, and introduced gradually by domestic corporations, which build-up good management experiences and a set of effective management mode in the process of production and operation. On the basis of reference from safety management mode and management method of technological process in the production process of foreign petrochemical corporations, and in conjunction with the actual conditions in China, this guidelines for process safety management of chemical corporations was formed with a view to provide thoughts and frames for the essential safety management of chemical corporations.
This Standard was prepared on the basis of successful practices of corporations and with high workability. For the convenience of corporation's application, "Application Examples for Guidelines for Process Safety Management of Chemical Corporations" is served as informative appendix of this Standard, and favorable to use for reference of corporations in practice.
This Standard is the standard in conjunction with AQ/T 3012-2008 "Guideline of Safety Management System Implementation for Petrochemical Corporation". Corporations may use this Standard to strengthen the process safety management of management system and enhancement of overall safety performance.
Guidelines for Process Safety Management of
This Standard specifies the elements and requirements for process safety management of petrochemical corporations. It gives application examples of process safety management.
This Standard is applicable to the process safety management of petrochemical corporations.
