ABOUT THE COURSE

Old approaches to safe design in the process industry relied on the application of codes of practice and the design was usually based upon experience from specialists and operators in the industry.  Such methods were able only to consider the problems and accidents that had already happened.  With the introduction of new technologies, unconventional design, complex plants, and short operating experience, a proper PHA study is now a mandatory tool to identify potential hazards and operability problems.

PHA is a systematic multidisciplinary team study intended to identify and analyze the significance of potential process hazards and make initial recommendations for eliminating hazards, for reducing the consequences of potential accidents and for improving general facility safety.

PHA methods are used for new plants as well as for modifications to an existing design. The methods have been developed primarily for the process industry and have been applied in great scale in the Oil and Gas sector.  However, the PHA techniques are now applied with success for other industries such as offshore construction, power and water projects, space and military industries, and environmental studies.

PHA studies are used to provide information for Layers of Protection Analysis (LOPA) studies, for example, to help meet the requirements of the IEC 61511 / ISA 84 standard on safety instrumented systems.
