This course will help you to develop the skills and knowledge to identify, assess and communicate process risks from a safety, environmental or business perspective, from a simple qualitative approach to fully quantified assessments.
By the end of the course you will understand:
- the concepts of individual and societal risk
- risk tolerability
- the 5-stage risk assessment process, the different types of process risk assessment and when to apply them
- techniques for qualitative, semi-quantitative and quantified risk assessment (QRA) including risk matrices, bow tie analysis, LOPA, occupied buildings risk assessment and fault tree/event tree analysis (FTA and ETA)
- environmental risk assessment using a risk matrix-based approach (CDOIF methodology)
- the principles of ALARP demonstration.
Who will benefit
- staff involved in the risk assessment process including supervisors, managers and directors
- plant/process operators including maintenance functions
- process safety engineers and loss prevention specialists
- chemical engineers working toward Chartered status.
- Process risk - individual and societal risk, tolerability and the ALARP concept
- The risk assessment process and types
- Hazard identification: how far does this take us?
- Semi-quantitative risk assessment, using a risk matrix to assess process risk
- Environmental risk assessment: using a Matrix-based methodology
- Layers of protection analysis: what benefits can it give us?
- Quantitative risk assessment
- Consequence assessment
- Fault tree and event tree analysis
- Demonstrating risks are ALARP
