This project presents the study of the safe procedu res of LNG loading and unloading operation in port. The purpos e f this study is to maintain the safety record of LNG opera tion for this roughly forty years. The study is carried out by pe rforming ‘one to one interview’ with the port’s safety officer. T hen, the collected data from the personal interview is analy zed using Hazard Identification (HAZID) approach. The detail procedures, technical data, and explanation from port’s safety as an expertise in LNG handling field could be needed to determine th potential improvement that could trigger the idea to develop a generic safety model which is refined and improved of the e xist nt holistic model that being reviewed in this study. T he model developed in this study is to be applied onto eithe r loading or unloading LNG terminal all over the world. This mod el is expected to meet the aim of minimizing the unsafe a ct and near miss which is always be the initiation point of har mful incident and accident. Model which has been developed is an improved and refined version of a generic safety model. The model developed describes the integration of technologies within the system of working competency which also reconsideri ng the individual performance. In the same time, it aimed to reduce the probabilities of the crews or operators to engage w ith unsafe act which always introduce the consequence of near miss , which is to be minimized in this research. The model developed in this study is called ‘H-T-D’ safety model, which stand for hum an factor, technical handling, and design element.
