Journal of Loss Prevention in the Process Industries Special Issue: Current Process Safety Research in China

About the Journal

Journal of Loss Prevention in the Process Industries is an international journal with a broad scope on process safety. Process safety is defined as the prevention and mitigation of process-related injuries and damage arising from process incidents involving fire, explosion and toxic release. Such undesired events occur in the process industries during the use, storage, manufacture, handling, and transportation of highly hazardous chemicals. The focus of the journal is on loss prevention as practiced in the process industries with an emphasis on chemical and process plant safety.

The chemical industry in China has been growing rapidly. China currently has the largest chemicals manufacturing economy, accounting for approximate 40% of that in the world. With several major chemical incidents, China has put more efforts to conduct research, aiming to improve work and public safety. A special issue of Journal of Loss Prevention in the Process Industries is very much needed to disseminate the progress of chemical process safety research in China, or applicable to China. Topics that are related to the prevention and mitigation of process incidents, such as fire, explosion and toxic release in the process industries during the use, storage, manufacture, handling, and transportation of highly hazardous chemicals, are all welcome. The topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Process safety management
  • Process safety culture
  • Process safety risk assessment
  • Incident investigation
  • Design and reliability of protective systems
  • Plant layout, maintenance and modification
  • Process alarm management
  • Emergency planning
  • Transportation of hazardous materials
  • Offshore oil and gas safety
