This book explains, in detail, how to perform the most commonly used hazard analysis techniques employed by the system safety engineering discipline. The book also explains when and why to use each technique. The goal of this book is to explain each technique with sufficient detail and examples that the techniques can be easily understood and performed by the reader. The book is not overly technical, and can be easily understood by readers with a minimal amount of technical background. This book gathers the techniques safety analysts can apply into one reference source and describes them in a way that benefits both new and seasoned safety analysts. In addition, this book describes the three components that comprise a hazard, and how to use these components to recognized hazards during an analysis. It includes detailed examples that apply the methodology to everyday problems, making the concepts easier for the reader to grasp. The new edition updates the chapters with the latest information and includes new chapters on Concepts of Hazard Recognition, as well as chapters that address new techniques added in MIL-STD-882E and techniques that are becoming popular in different industries such as: Environmental Hazard Analysis, Process Hazard Analysis, Test Hazard Analysis, Job Hazard Analysis, and System of Systems Hazard Analysis

Over the last three decades the process industries have grown very rapidly, with corresponding increases in the quantities of hazardous materials in process, storage or transport. Plants have become larger and are often situated in or close to densely populated areas. Increased hazard of loss of life or property is continually highlighted with incidents such as Flixborough, Bhopal, Chernobyl, Three Mile Island, the Phillips 66 incident, and Piper Alpha to name but a few. The field of Loss Prevention is, and continues to, be of supreme importance to countless companies, municipalities and governments around the world, because of the trend for processing plants to become larger and often be situated in or close to densely populated areas, thus increasing the hazard of loss of life or property. This book is a detailed guidebook to defending against these, and many other, hazards. It could without exaggeration be referred to as the "bible" for the process industries. This is THE standard reference work for chemical and process engineering safety professionals. For years, it has been 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 reference instead. Frank Lees' world renowned work has been fully revised and expanded by a team of leading chemical and process engineers working under the guidance of one of the world’s chief experts in this field. Sam Mannan is professor of chemical engineering at Texas A&M University, and heads the Mary Kay O’Connor Process Safety Center at Texas A&M. He received his MS and Ph.D. in chemical engineering from the University of Oklahoma, and joined the chemical engineering department at Texas A&M University as a professor in 1997. He has over 20 years of experience as an engineer, working both in industry and academia New detail is added to chapters on fire safety, engineering, explosion hazards, analysis and suppression, and new appendices feature more recent disasters. The many thousands of references have been updated along with standards and codes of practice issued by authorities in the US, UK/Europe and internationally. In addition to all this, more regulatory relevance and case studies have been included in this edition. Written in a clear and concise style, Loss Prevention in the Process Industries covers traditional areas of personal safety as well as the more technological aspects and thus provides balanced and in-depth coverage of the whole field of safety and loss prevention. * A must-have standard reference for chemical and process engineering safety professionals * The most complete collection of information on the theory, practice, design elements, equipment and laws that pertain to process safety * Only single work to provide everything; principles, practice, codes, standards, data and references needed by those practicing in the field

Physical asset management is the management of fixed or non-current assets such as equipment and plant. Physical Asset Management presents a systematic approach to the management of these assets from concept to disposal. The general principles of physical asset management are discussed in a manner which makes them accessible to a wide audience, and covers all stages of the asset management process, including: initial business appraisal; identification of fixed asset needs; financial evaluation; logistic support analysis; life cycle costing; maintenance strategy; outsourcing; cost-benefit analysis; disposal; and renewal. Physical Asset Management addresses the needs of existing and potential asset managers, and provides an introduction to asset management for professionals in related disciplines, such as finance. The book provides both an introduction and a convenient reference work, covering all the main areas of physical asset management.

Process safety management (PSM) systems are only as effective as the day-to-day ability of the organization to rigorously execute system requirements correctly every time. The failure of just one person in completing a job task correctly just one time can unfortunately lead to serious injuries and potentially catastrophic incidents. In fact, the design, implementation, and daily execution of PSM systems are all dependent on workers at all levels in the organization doing their job tasks correctly every time. High levels of Operational Discipline, therefore, help ensure strong PSM performance and overall operational excellence. This book details management practices which help ensure rigor in executing process safety programs in order to prevent major accidents.

This proceedings contains papers from the IFAC Symposium on On-line Fault Detection and Supervision in the Chemical Process Industries (CHEMFAS-4), held in Jejudo Island, Korea, 7-8 June 2001. The proceedings includes theoretical contributions, as well as a wide range of industrial applications in process fault diagnosis, monitoring, and advanced supervision. The papers are organized around the following themes: fault detection and diagnosis, statistical and trend analysis, methodologies, sensor location and data reconciliation and applications. The driving forces for on-line fault detection and improved supervision of process operation include human safety, environmental safeguards, and equipment protection, as well as economic considerations such as the improvement of product quality, increased production, and so on. These diverse incentives, together with the development and evaluation of novel methodologies for on-line process supervision and management, form the focus of the symposium and of the papers in this Proceedings. Altogether over 60 papers are presented, covering strategies including model-based and data-driven approaches, as well as knowledge-based systems, statistical techniques, and AI-based pattern recognition techniques. All the work presented is at the cutting edge of research in this dynamic field.

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 edition is packed with information reflecting advances in this evolving methodology, and includes worked examples on a CD-ROM. CPQRA is used to identify incident scenarios and evaluate their risk by defining the probability of failure, the various consequences and the potential impact of those consequences. It is an invaluable methodology to evaluate these when qualitative analysis cannot provide adequate understanding and when more information is needed for risk management. This technique provides a means to evaluate acute hazards and alternative risk reduction strategies, and identify areas for cost-effective risk reduction. There are no simple answers when complex issues are concerned, but CPQRA2 offers a cogent, well-illustrated guide to applying these risk-analysis techniques, particularly to risk control studies. Special Details: Includes CD-ROM with example problems worked using Excel and Quattro Pro. For use with Windows 95, 98, and NT.
