Introduction: Hazard Identification, risk assessment and management have an important role in reducing potential risks in industrial settings. This research was done with the aim of identifying the hazard and evaluating HSE risks and providing a HSE management program for the Urea Unit of Shiraz Petrochemical Complex.
Method: Firstly, hazard identification and qualitative risk assessment was done using FMEA technique and risky units were identified. Then, main events were identified and analysed as inputs of the Bow-Tie method. By identifying the strength, weakness, opportunity and threat factors, ranking and weighting them using the ANP method and Super Decisions software, a SWOT matrix was prepared and HSE management strategies were extracted.
Findings: The results showed that chemical leakage, falling from height and slipping were the most important incidents, and defect of control equipment, lack of attention to instructions, non-compliance with safety principles and human error were causes of these events. Also, ranking of weaknesses, strengths, opportunities and threats were 0.58, 0.2, 0.16 and 0.05, respectively.
Conclusion: Organizational opportunities with a weight of 0.124 were 4.8% higher than threats with a weight of 0.076. This shows that the company had a good situation in terms of achieving its goals.
