Process safety

Secure the safety of your plant and above all, your employees.

Many industrial facilities, especially those in the chemical, oil and gas and petroleum industries, involve inherent risks in operations due to the processing of material that is hazardous in nature. It is necessary to precisely identify and analyze hazards, operability issues, associated risks and consequences.

Not only for SEVESO III / BRZO companies is process safety a key point of attention, also in other industries this is a growing point of attention. HAZOP and other safety studies start to take place more and more in the food industry for example. Regulatory authorities are becoming more aware of the importance of process safety outside of the traditional high-risk industries.

HAZOP studies

BM Process Management has over a decade of experience in the field of HAZOP studies as a chairman, scribe and as a subject matter expert during HAZOP meetings.

When it comes to HAZOP studies the services that I can offer are:

  • Conducting HAZOP studies (chairmanship)
  • Closeout of HAZOP actions and documenting the measures taken
  • Review of existing designs with a HAZOP mindset
  • Review of HAZOP studies
  • Input during HAZOP meetings as an external expert

BM Process Management continues to develop the knowledge on Hazop studies with additional training and certification.

LOPA studies

Safety instrumented systems (SISs) are often used to reduce the risk associated with a process or plant to acceptable or tolerable levels. The reliability of safety functions implemented through a SIS is determined by the magnitude of risk reduction and is expressed in terms of safety integrity level (SIL).

A layer of protection analysis (LOPA) is one of the prevailing methods to determine the SIL. LOPA is also very often part of the risk reduction method in a HAZOP study.

Probability of failure on demand (PFD) as well as risk reduction factors (RRF) are not arbitrary numbers. These are clearly documented in literature. The actual use of these factors is still down to the experience of the user.

BM Process Management has a broad experience in using the LOPA methodology to determine the SIL levels. This knowledge is being extended and deepened by attending training courses and by obtaining certifications in the future.

BM Process Management will soon be offering services in the field of ATEX:

  • Consultancy regarding ATEX regulations
