However, any operation that involves a system or continuous or batch processes that can have major a incident leading to injuries, fatalities, major property damage, environmental impact, business interruption or loss of prestige, or a security threat would have applicability. The typical job application is facility or process engineers, safety, loss prevention and fire protection engineers, regulators, inspectors and consultants.
