Plant shutdown is an example of non-routine activities and one of the most dangerous operation periods for a chemical plant. The bad news is that, as reported by tcetoday.com, around 70% of the major accidents occur during non-routine operations.
Because of this risk, you have to focus on safety during plant shut down more than during normal plant operation.
Especially, when you face an unexpected shutdown.
Take more care against unexpected shutdowns rather than a planned shutdown. It is because you have no plan at all and there may be hazards that you have never thought about.
That’s why you need a checklist to avoid forgetting important safety considerations during the plant shut down.
A plant shutdown safety checklist will help you focus on safety better while carrying out the plant shutdown activities safely.
