Petrochemical process is a high-risk process accompanied by failures, risks, accidents and even disasters. Preventing risks and ensuring safety has always been an eternal topic in the petrochemical industry. Based on the analysis of some typical accident cases at home and abroad, this paper reviews the development history, technical status and shortcomings of petrochemical production process safety technology, and systematically summarizes the technical problems and challenges in four aspects of petrochemical safety technology, which is helpful for us to sort out the existing deficiencies and clarify the future development ideas.
