Chemical process quantitative risk analysis (CPQRA) as applied to the CPI was first fully described in the first edition of this CCPS Guidelines book. This second . A model for a fireball was given in the CCPS QRA Guidelines (/5). A summary of this model has been published by Prugh (). A more recent model is. QRA Guidelines (note: harm footprints as indicated in Section of this .. CCPS (Guidelines for Chemical Transportation Risk Analysis, CCPS/AIChE.

While inferring the risk criteria from the information presented might be difficult, risk decisions driven by such a cccps should be consistent with other applications of the risk criteria established by the organization. Employees, who enter the site to seek the benefits of employment, who are trained on process hazards, and who are provided personal protective equipment, are generally regarded to share in the responsibility for being cognizant ccpps, and seeking to manage, the risks associated guidekines their employment.

QRA can be applied to operations that are larger than a major facility e. This figure is a hypothetical example and does not recommend values to be used for risk assessment purposes. Scenarios are identified elsewhere, typically using a scenario-based hazard evaluation procedure such as a HAZOP study.

The calculation of societal risk requires the same frequency and consequence information as individual risk. In these situations, quantitative risk assessment QRA becomes a useful tool for gaining perspective on the collective significance of these potential events. A similar approach is often used in the process industries, where it is sometimes termed risk escalation.

Does LOPA really replace 90% of the QRA?

This statement is particularly valid when the employer has taken reasonable and prudent measures to 1 control workplace hazards, 2 inform workers of the hazards, and 3 train workers in prevention and control of the hazards, in necessary personnel protection, and in emergency response actions. To measure is to know Ifyou can not measure it, you can not improve it.


This is the case even though, for instance, several cdps might pass between such airline disasters in the U. Thus, the site individual risk criterion might be apportioned to the various operating units on the site and even down to the scenario level, as discussed in Section 4.

An important issue regarding the applicability of voluntary risk is the distinction of categories of personnel at an industrial site and how the risk criteria vary depending on the personnel.

Guidelines for Chemical Process Quantitative Risk Analysis, 2nd Edition

Second, the maximum tolerable societal risk was made non-mandatory, with the intent that the local enforcing authority e. In order to post comments, please make sure JavaScript and Cookies are enabled, and reload the page.

Thus, societal risk estimates include a measure of incident scale in terms of the number of people impacted. However, once the teams were coached to use similar assumptions, the risk results converged to within an acceptable range i,e.

What if the company has two operating sites that differ markedly in factors such as their physical size, surrounding population, inherent hazards of materials handled, value of production, and so forth? Alternatively, this calculation may seek the greatest risk considering individual working patterns i. Many companies and regulatory authorities have based their risk criteria on this model.

Both of these countries continue to refine the development and application of riskbased evaluations of facility risks. He has over 30 years of experience, including more than 20 in senior management and senior PSM advisory roles. As these Guidelines will further explain, risk criteria should be commensurate with the scale of the activity to which they are intended to be applied.


For example, an activity may be so commonplace, such as descending a stairway in our home, that our awareness of the risk is, at best, subliminal. One important product of CCPS, in support of its charter, is a series of guidelines books which provide information on implementation of various aspects of a complete process safety management system.

Examples of the application of QRA include: Unfortunately, some organizations have established risk criteria without providing clear guidance on how, or at what level, the risk criteria were intended to be applied. The process industries rely upon many types of IPSs to respond to abnormal operations or situations that might otherwise have serious process safety consequences. Bill is considered one of the leading authorities on process safety engineering, risk management, and human error prevention.

The Schiphol issue helped precipitate risk criteria revisions inwhich declared the criteria for guideoines tolerable societal risk to be advisory rather than mandatory. These approaches can be characterized as: Conclusions and appropriate recommendations are developed. Conversely, the uncertainty of the analysis should not be used as a justification for avoiding further risk reductions when the risk is above the maximum tolerable risk criteria.

The first product of CCPS was guidellnes first edition of Guidelines for Hazard Evaluation Procedures, published inand now in its third edition published in Several examples of these standards and practices are described guidekines.

Nevertheless, many find that this approach is of greater value to an experienced PHA team since, based upon its collective experience, the team has at least a historical sense of how frequently an event might occur or how great the consequences might be.
