  • A Design Principle where not only is there an effort to prevent an accident, but to reduce the consequences if should one occur
  • Method
    • Substitute: replacing one material with another that is less hazardous
    • Minimize: reducing the amount of hazardous material in the process
    • Moderate: using less hazardous process conditions such as lower pressures or temperatures
    • Simplify: designing processes to be less complicated, and therefore less prone to failure. (See KISS / Points of Failure )
