End Date/Time: Apr 23, 2009
Risk based techniques are fundamental to the requirements offshore and onshore with safety reports and safety courses both in Europe and the US. QRA studies are used extensively in examining designs at the concept stage, when issues such as siting, layout, hazardous material inventories and the site protection philosophy should be reviewed.
The QRA elements of the course will also include fire, explosion as well as H2S risks and consequence analyses that should be carried out to assess the accident scenarios for the mitigation of possible accidents and hazards (COMAH). This will indicate any precautions that need to be taken against total loss of the facility.
The delegates will have an understanding of:
Risk Assessment; and
Design of bow tie diagrams to show threats, barriers, top events, mitigation and consequences.
The course will also give participants a greater understanding of risk assessment
