Genre: Technology & Engineering

Guidelines for Risk Based Process Safety provides guidelines for industries that manufacture, consume, or handle chemicals, by focusing on new ways to design, correct, or improve process safety management practices. This new framework for thinking about process safety builds upon the original process safety management ideas published in the early 1990s, integrates industry lessons learned over the intervening years, utilizes applicable "total quality" principles (i.e., plan, do, check, act), and organizes it in a way that will be useful to all organizations - even those with relatively lower hazard activities - throughout the life-cycle of a company.

Guidelines for Initiating Events and Independent Protection Layers in Layer of Protection Analysis

Author: CCPS (Center for Chemical Process Safety)
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
ISBN: 9781118948729
Release Date: 2015-02-02
Genre: Technology & Engineering

The book is a guide for Layers of Protection Analysis (LOPA) practitioners. It explains the onion skin model and in particular, how it relates to the use of LOPA and the need for non-safety instrumented independent protection layers. It provides specific guidance on Independent Protection Layers (IPLs) that are not Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS). Using the LOPA methodology, companies typically take credit for risk reductions accomplished through non-SIS alternatives; i.e. administrative procedures, equipment design, etc. It addresses issues such as how to ensure the effectiveness and maintain reliability for administrative controls or “inherently safer, passive” concepts. This book will address how the fields of Human Reliability Analysis, Fault Tree Analysis, Inherent Safety, Audits and Assessments, Maintenance, and Emergency Response relate to LOPA and SIS. The book will separate IPL’s into categories such as the following: Inherent Safety eliminates a scenario or fundamentally reduces a hazard Preventive/Proactive prevents initiating event from occurring such as enhanced maintenance Preventive/Active stops chain of events after initiating event occurs but before an incident has occurred such as high level in a tank shutting off the pump. Mitigation (active or passive) minimizes impact once an incident has occurred such as closing block valves once LEL is detected in the dike (active) or the dike preventing contamination of groundwater (passive).

Safety in the process industries is critical for those who work with chemicals and hazardous substances or processes. The field of loss prevention is, and continues to be, of supreme importance to countless companies, municipalities and governments around the world, and Lees’ is a detailed reference to defending against hazards. Recognized as the standard work for chemical and process engineering safety professionals, it provides the most complete collection of information on the theory, practice, design elements, equipment, regulations and laws covering the field of process safety. An entire library of alternative books (and cross-referencing systems) would be needed to replace or improve upon it, but everything of importance to safety professionals, engineers and managers can be found in this all-encompassing three volume reference instead. The process safety encyclopedia, trusted worldwide for over 30 years Now available in print and online, to aid searchability and portability Over 3,600 print pages cover the full scope of process safety and loss prevention, compiling theory, practice, standards, legislation, case studies and lessons learned in one resource as opposed to multiple sources

The Safety Professional s Role

Genre: Reference

The Safety Professional’s Role: In Support of Industrial Facilities Operations and Maintenance (O&M) discusses how the safety professional, in direct support of a manager (or management group) of an industrial facility, can provide the advice and support needed to control hazards, minimize risk and maximize workplace safety at these inherently dangerous locations and during potentially dangerous operations. Chemical processing, in one form or another, serves as the engine of a global economy. Raw materials, whether extracted by drilling and mining, grown and cultivated in crops, or recovered from reusable materials, must be refined and processed into useful bulk materials and chemicals. These processes usually involve work around or with chemicals that possess hazardous qualities such as flammability, explosiveness, toxicity, or reactivity. These refined materials and bulk chemicals are then delivered to in the next stage of manufacture where they are used responsibly to produce the goods and products that make modern day living more comfortable and enjoyable. It is this process of chemical refinement and safe use and handling of these chemicals in manufacturing that is explored in this text, particularly the practice of assessing and controlling the risk associated with the industrial use of these highly hazardous chemicals (HHCs). You may know this policy and practice as “Process Safety Management”. Work with HHCs clearly increases the risks and hazards at the job site where they are being stored, used and processed. Facility managers responsible for managing the complexities of Maintenance and Operations (O&M) associated with industrial facilities, turn to trained, educated, and experienced safety professionals for reliable safety advice, training and management support. Industrial Safety professionals, be they General Safety Practitioner, or specialists such as Industrial Hygienist, Environmental Affairs Manager, Hazardous Waste Coordinator, Chemical Hygiene Officer, Project Safety Manager, or Occupational Health Nurse can benefit from the findings and suggestions presented in this text. The Safety Professional’s Role: In Support of Industrial Facilities Operations and Maintenance (O&M) essentially serves as a roadmap of recommendations that a Safety Professional, engaged in O&M support, can use to be more responsive to the many needs of his or her process plant.
