Background: Work-related accidents are one of the most important factors in the loss of human lives. With technology and industrial progress, the consequences of accidents due to hazards become more severe and may even stop the work of power plants. This study aimed to identify and assess the risk of hazards in a combined cycle power plant. Methods: The descriptive cross-sectional study was conducted to assess the risk of a combined cycle power plant using the FMEA method. Having studied various documentation and records, holding different meetings, and brainstorming, the risk priority number was calculated and corrective suggestions have been presented. Results: Out of a total of 74 identified risks, 34 (45.94%) were at high risk, and 40 (54.05%) were of medium risk. 85% of the risks had the highest severity levels that could cause explosions and fires, injuries, and burns. Conclusion: It can be mentioned that the risks associated with industries such as power plants were high and preventive measures in such places are very important. Identifying hazards and risk assessments with a standard method such as FMEA was a useful way to prevent accidents and human and financial losses.
