ABOUT THE COURSE          

LOPA is a simplified form of risk assessment. It is used to comply with industry standards and regulatory expectations. Often it is used as an extension of process hazard analysis (PHA). LOPA is used to evaluate scenario risk and compare it with risk tolerance criteria to decide if existing safeguards are adequate, and if additional safeguards are needed. LOPA helps focus limited resources on the most critical safeguards.
