Abstract – Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (API) products are innovating in research and development (R&D) in lab scale. By using technology transfer lab scale to processes scale up in pilot plant for validation and commercial production. Compare to lab scale, pilot scale process is differ with mass, energy and handling of raw materials. The process operation is more hazardous and explosive in nature though it is economical and useful for many purposes such as the process operation in pilot plant. A Hazard Operability (HAZOP) study is a structured and systematic examination of a plant process in order to identify and evaluate problem that may represent risk to personal and equipment.  In this project hazard and operability studies (HAZOP) approach is applied to find out the hazard and  operability problem in process operation. Finally based on the operability problems, suggestion and safety precaution of the pilot plant units are provided.
