A system was developed that could predict hazardous states for safe operation of chemical plants. This system aimed to prevent hazards of chemical processes from misoperation before real operation. In this study, a data base was organized which consisted of all hazards in the chemical processes. The structure of process was represented by signed direct graph(SDG) of NODEs and ARCs. Each NODE and ARC have property variables ; connected structure and state of processes etc. The hazards that could be occurred in processes were divided into two classes ; one is by operation of unit and the other is by hazardous materials. Using Hazardous States Transition Network, we could recognize transition progress of process states.
