The tragic incident at Bhopal, India made it clear that safety reviews for identification and control of accidents involving toxic chemicals must be more systematic. This guide shows how to integrate hazard identification, risk assessment, consequence analysis, and risk mitigation into a formalized program for handling hazardous chemicals. Most of the 21 contributors are senior staff members at Stone & Webster Engineering Corporation. They discuss how to perform and supervise safety studies for chemical, petrochemical, petroleum refining, and other facilities. They discuss all aspects of detection, prevention, and mitigation of risks associated with processing, handling, and production of hazardous chemicals. Special attention is given to hazard identification and hazard assessment techniques ranging from simple screening checklists to highly structured Hazard and Operability (HAZOP) analysis. You're shown how to calculate potential consequences of identified hazards, quantify the likelihood of these events, and combine equipment failure rate data and human reliability analysis with hazard assessment. You'll also benefit from the book's rundowns of how to * apply expert systems and artificial intelligence in risk management * instill safety-oriented operating and maintenance procedures * train operators and emergency response personnel * conduct internal and external safety audits * perform chemical dispersion, explosion, and fire analyses * assess health effects from chemical releases * use insurance vehicles to deal with residual risk. Risk Assessment and Risk Management for the Chemical Process Industry is an essential source on minimizing the dangers of toxic incidents and accidents. It is essential reading for safety engineers, regulatory managers, environmental engineers, and other professionals responsible for safety in chemical plants.

This book deals with the state-of-the-art of physical security knowledge and research in the chemical and process industries. Legislation differences between Europe and the USA are investigated, followed by an overview of the how, what and why of contemporary security risk assessment in this particular industrial sector. Innovative solutions such as attractiveness calculations and the use of game theory, advancing the present science of adversarial risk analysis, are discussed. The book further stands up for developing and employing dynamic security risk assessments, for instance based on Bayesian networks, and using OR methods to truly move security forward in the chemical and process industries.

Risk Analysis and Control for Industrial Processes - Gas, Oil and Chemicals provides an analysis of current approaches for preventing disasters, and gives readers an overview on which methods to adopt. The book covers safety regulations, history and trends, industrial disasters, safety problems, safety tools, and capital and operational costs versus the benefits of safety, all supporting project decision processes. Tools covered include present day array of risk assessment, tools including HAZOP, LOPA and ORA, but also new approaches such as System-Theoretic Process Analysis (STPA), Blended HAZID, applications of Bayesian data analytics, Bayesian networks, and others. The text is supported by valuable examples to help the reader achieve a greater understanding on how to perform safety analysis, identify potential issues, and predict the likelihood they may appear. Presents new methods on how to identify hazards of low probability/high consequence events Contains information on how to develop and install safeguards against such events, with guidance on how to quantify risk and its uncertainty, and how to make economic and societal decisions about risk Demonstrates key concepts through the use of examples and relevant case studies
