Quantitative Risk Analysis is a powerful tool used to help manage risk and improve safety. When used appropriately, it provides a rational basis for evaluating process safety and comparing alternative safety improvements. This guide, an update of an earlier American Chemistry Council (ACC) publication utilizing the "hands-on" experience of CPI risk assessment practitioners and safety professionals involved with the CCPS and ACC, explains how managers and users can make better-informed decisions about QRA, and how plant engineers and process designers can better understand, interpret and use the results of a QRA in their plant.

Book Description :

Establishing, maintaining and refining a comprehensive Process Safety Management (PSM) and Risk Management Program (RMP) is a daunting task. The regulations are complicated and difficult to understand. The resources available to manage your program are limited. Your plant could be the target of a grueling PSM and RMP compliance audit by OSHA and/or the EPA, which could scrutinize your facility according to their stringent audit guidelines. Ask yourself some questions. . . * Is your municipal plant or industrial facility ready to meet new OSHA and EPA PSM/RMP regulations? * Do you understand OSHA's and EPA's requirements? * Do you know how OSHA/EPA are interpreting PSM/RMP requirements? * Are you prepared for a possible audit? * Is your existing PSM/RMP comprehensive, maintainable and cost-effective? If you answered "no" to any of these, you need the expert guidance provided by A Guide to Compliance for Process Safety Management/Risk Management Planning (PSM/RMP) In recent years, chemical accidents that involved the release of toxic substances have claimed the lives of hundreds of employees and thousands of others worldwide. In order to prevent repeat occurrences of catastrophic chemical incidents, OSHA and the USEPA have joined forces to bring about the OSHA Process Safety Management Standard (PSM) and the USEPA Risk Management Program (RMP). Chemical disaster situations can occur due to human error in system operation and/or a malfunction in system equipment. Other emergency situations that must also be considered and planned for include fire, floods, hurricanes, earthquakes, tornadoes, snow/ice storms, avalanches, explosions, truck accidents, train derailments, airplane crashes, building collapses, riots, bomb threats, terrorism, and sabotage. Be prepared! * Determine the differences and similarities between OSHA's PSM and EPA's RMP regulations * Survey your facility to determine your needs * Plug your site-specific data into regulation templates * Prepare your data records for your PSM compliance package * Calculate your "Worst Case" scenarios * Assemble a viable PSM program in a logical, sequential, and correct manner * Supervise program implementation elements with the overall management system This user friendly, plain English, straightforward guide to new EPA and OSHA regulations describes, explains and demonstrates a tested, proven, workable methodology for installation of complete, correct safety and risk programs. It provides the public administrator, plant manager, plant engineer, and organization safety professionals with the tool needed to ensure full compliance with the requirements of both regulations. Those with interests in HazMat response and mitigation procedures will also find it of use. This guidebook is designed to be applicable to the needs of most operations involved in the production, use, transfer, storage, and processing of hazardous materials. It addresses Process Safety Management and Risk Management Planning for facilities handling hazardous materials, and describes the activities and approach to use within U.S. plants and companies of all sizes. From the Author This guidebook is designed to enable the water, wastewater, and general industry person who has been assigned the task of complying with these new rules to accomplish this compliance effort in the easiest most accurate manner possible. A Guide to Compliance for Process Safety Management/Risk Management Planning (PSM/RMP) is user-friendly. This How-To-Do-It guide will assist those who are called upon to design, develop, and install PSM and RMP systems within their companies or plants. It describes, explains, and demonstrates a proven methodology: an example that actually works and has been tested. More than anything else, this guidebook really is a "Template." It provides a pattern that can be used to devise a compliance package that is accurate. Simply stated: like the standard template, this guidebook can provide the foundation, the border, the framework from which any covered organization's PSM and RMP effort can be brought into proper compliance. The user simply "plugs in" site specific information into the model presented in this guidebook. This guidebook first shows that PSM and RMP are similar and are interrelated in many ways and different in only a few ways. Many of the processes listed in PSM are also listed in RMP; the additional RMP processes are in industry sectors that have a significant accident history Along with showing the similarities and interrelationships between PSM and RMP, the requirements of RMP that are in addition to those listed in PSM are discussed. This guidebook also discusses the RMP requirement for off-site consequence analysis and the methodology that can be utilized in performing it. If the PSM project team follows this format, it will be able to assemble a viable PSM program in a logical, sequential, and correct manner.

Book Description :

The safe operation of plants is of paramount importance in the chemical, petrochemical and pharmaceutical industries. Best practice in process and plant safety allows both the prevention of hazards and the mitigation of consequences. Safety Technology is continuously advancing to new levels and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is already successfully established as a tool to ensure the safe operation of industrial plants. With CFD tools, a great amount of knowledge can be gained as both the necessary safety measures and the economic operation of plants can be simultaneously determined. Young academics, safety experts and safety managers in all parts of the industry will henceforth be forced to responsibly judge these new results from a safety perspective. This is the main challenge for the future of safety technology. This book serves as a guide to elaborating and determining the principles, assumptions, strengths, limitations and application areas of utilizing CFD in process and plant safety, and safety management. The book offers recommendations relating to guidelines, procedures, frameworks and technology for creating a higher level of safety for chemical and petrochemical plants. It includes modeling aids and concrete examples of industrial safety measures for hazard prevention.

Book Description :

Almost all the major accident investigations--Texas City, Piper Alpha, the Phillips 66 explosion, Feyzin, Mexico City--show human error as the principal cause, either in design, operations, maintenance, or the management of safety. This book provides practical advice that can substantially reduce human error at all levels. In eight chapters--packed with case studies and examples of simple and advanced techniques for new and existing systems--the book challenges the assumption that human error is "unavoidable." Instead, it suggests a systems perspective. This view sees error as a consequence of a mismatch between human capabilities and demands and inappropriate organizational culture. This makes error a manageable factor and, therefore, avoidable.
