    Changing attitudes to Chemical & Process QRA….
    1980: Major Oil Company Representative

    “QRA is equivalent to counting the number of angels that can stand on the head of a pin. It can be concluded that risk analysis is likely to be a waste of time if applied to chemical processes.”
    1993: Major Oil Company Risk Engineering Standard
    “QRA is a tool which helps translate hindsight (accidents) into foresight (planning)…showing ways and means (improved engineering, procedures and supervision) to prevent the calculated accidents from happening.”


    HAZID Study
    Hazard Identification (HAZID) study is a tool for hazard identification, used early in a project as soon as process flow diagrams, draft heat and mass balances, and plot layouts are available. Existing site infrastructure, weather, and geotechnical data are also required, these being a source of external hazards. The method is a design-enabling tool, acting to help organize the HSE deliverables in a project. The structured brainstorming technique typically involves designer and client personnel engineering disciplines, project management, commissioning and operations. Major findings and hazard ratings help to deliver HSE compliance, and form part of the project Risk Register required by many licensing authorities.

    HAZOP Study
    A Hazard and Operability Study (HAZOP) is a structured and systematic examination of a planned or existing process or operation in order to identify and evaluate problems that may represent risks to personnel or equipment, or prevent efficient operation; it is carried out by a suitably experienced multi-disciplinary team (HAZOP team) during a set of meetings. The HAZOP technique is qualitative, and aims to stimulate the imagination of participants to identify potential hazards and operability problems; structure and completeness are given by using guideword prompts.

     
  • OISD Gap Analysis
    Standardisation is one of the major activities of OISD.It is required to keep abreast of the latest design and operating practices in the areas of safety and fire fighting in the hydrocarbon processing industry in the developed countries so as to develop standards and codes that would be suitable for the conditions prevailing in India. These OISD standards are periodically reviewed to incorporate the latest technological developments and experiences gained in their implementation so as to update them in line with the current international practices.
    OISD maintains a database of accidents taking place in the oil industry. The analysis of these incidents is shared with the industry to avoid recurrence. OISD also investigates the major incidents.


    Safety Audit
    Safety auditing is a core safety management activity, providing a means of identifying potential problems before they have an impact on safety.
    Audit is a systematic and, wherever possible, independent examination to determine whether activities and related results conform to planned arrangements and whether these arrangements are implemented effectively and are suitable to achieve the organization's policy and objectives.


    Process Safety Audit 
    1. gather all relevant documentation covering process safety management requirements at a specific facility
    2. determine the program's implementation and effectiveness by following up on their application to one or more selected processes
