Creation and Use of CCPS Evaluation (High-Pressure Gas Version)

Taiyo Nippon Sanso Corporation has developed its own accident intensity standards, based on the Center for Chemical Process Safety (CCPS) evaluation method* and in consideration of the potential impact of high-pressure gases. The company evaluates accidents in Japan based on a five-level scale and five characteristics: (1) physical injuries, (2) property damage, (3) potential impact of high-pressure gases, (4) environmental impact, and (5) social impact and media coverage. The evaluation results in an overall number of points by which the company quantifies intensity.

* This is a method proposed by the U.S. Center for Chemical Process Safety to prevent process-related accidents and disasters.
