Abstract: The consideration of safety of processing plants from design to operation involves many tasks. Different techniques and tools have been developed to assist in carry out those tasks. With the advances in computing technologies, both in hardware and software, there is the opportunity to bring together the vast amount of engineering, hazard and risk data and handle them in an efficient way to manage and improve safety throughout the life time of a plant. This paper proposes keeping such data in a process plant safety information repository which can be easily accessed by different safety-related tools to enhance the efficiency of safety identification and analysis tasks.
