Abstract: 

Background: Regards of development of metal industries and importance of accident control, this study focused on risk assessment of foundry unit by energy trace and barrier analysis (ETBA) method.
Methods: the recent study is as a qualitative one to risk assessment in a foundry unites in Qazvin industrial city. In this study risks were founded by ETBA method and evaluated by MIL-STD-882B. All Steps of performing ETBA method were completed in the field of study. Data were collected by direct observations; interview with workers and supervisor and engineers, walking –talking through method, documents investigation of operational processors, preventive maintenances, equipment technical properties, accidental and medical documents, then had been completed ETBA work sheets.
Findings: 154 risks have been found. 40 from total are been unacceptable risk, 68 unfavorable and also 46 acceptable but with remediation action. Foundry workshop had risks more than other workshops (with 74 identified risks). 108 from total risks are been unacceptable and unfavorable. Potential and heat energies were founded as most hazardous energies, with respectively 51 and 38 risk cases.
Conclusion: This study recommended to be done actions for identification and control risk, such as: safety training, occupation training, preventive maintenance, contract safety, safety communication and safety audit group.
