Guidelines for Risk Based Process Safety Excerpt :

Guidelines for Risk Based Process Safety provides guidelines for industries that manufacture, consume, or handle chemicals, by focusing on new ways to design, correct, or improve process safety management practices. This new framework for thinking about process safety builds upon the original process safety management ideas published in the early 1990s, integrates industry lessons learned over the intervening years, utilizes applicable "total quality" principles (i.e., plan, do, check, act), and organizes it in a way that will be useful to all organizations - even those with relatively lower hazard activities - throughout the life-cycle of a company.

In this easy-to-understand book, the author, drawing on his many years of practical experience, addresses the problems experienced with management of change in chemical plants. He cites examples of the consequences of the insufficient review of changes implemented to solve one problem, which then create another.Unwise chemical plant modifications are one of the major causes of chemical plant accidents and all proposed good ideas involving change require careful review and analysis before implementation. Illustrated with many case histories this book highlights the incidents of unforseen, undesirable consequences of unwise change within chemical and petrochemical plants and petroleum refineries.Illustrated with many case histories, this book highlights the incidents of unforeseen, undesirable consequences of unwise change within chemical and petrochemical and petroleum refineries.

Thermal Safety of Chemical Processes Excerpt :

Completely revised and updated to reflect the current IUPAC standards, this second edition is enlarged by five new chapters dealing with the assessment of energy potential, physical unit operations, emergency pressure relief, the reliability of risk reducing measures, and process safety and process development. Clearly structured in four parts, the first provides a general introduction and presents the theoretical, methodological and experimental aspects of thermal risk assessment. Part II is devoted to desired reactions and techniques allowing reactions to be mastered on an industrial scale, while the third part deals with secondary reactions, their characterization, and techniques to avoid triggering them. Due to the inclusion of new content and restructuring measures, the technical aspects of risk reduction are highlighted in the new section that constitutes the final part. Each chapter begins with a case history illustrating the topic in question, presenting lessons learned from the incident. Numerous examples taken from industrial practice are analyzed, and each chapter concludes with a series of exercises or case studies, allowing readers to check their understanding of the subject matter. Finally, additional control questions have been added and solutions to the exercises and problems can now be found.
