The Chemical Research Development and Engineering Center CRDEC has mandated appropriate levels of system safety throughout the life cycle of facility development. This article demonstrates one specific effort in Facility System Safety FSS currently underway at CRDEC. The intended purpose of this article is to demonstrate, through specific examples, how FSS can be applied to the designconstructionoperation of a chemical surety materiel laboratory. The laboratory under study is a 32 million dollar Military Construction, Army MCA project designed to replace aging facilities which are currently utilized to perform daily CSM operations. This article will demonstrate the methods used in identifying, analyzing and ultimately eliminating or reducing the effect of a hazard on the facility, equipment and personnel. The laboratory under consideration will conduct diversified chemical surety materiel laboratory operations. These materials are anticholinergic agents and are extremely lethal in small concentrations.
