Safety and Security Review for the Process Industries Book Description :

Dennis Nolan, drawing on decades of experience as a well-known safety author and senior loss prevention specialist at Saudi Aramco, provides the essential procedures and checklists in Safety and Security Review for the Process Industries. In addition to guiding the reader through the selection and execution of efficient and complete hazard analysis and safety reviews (such as HAZOP, PHA, What-If, SVA, LOPA, Bowtie), Nolan shares his personal experience and illustrates procedures with real-world examples. Updated throughout to reflect changing practices, the fourth edition expands its scope to include maintenance, exploratory drilling, and governmental regulation updates. It adds best practice guidelines on CHAZOP reviews, expands on threats in the security vulnerability analysis, and includes more information on chemical process facilities and hydrocarbon/chemical plant safeguards. Up-to-date form templates and “what-if checklists are also available for purchasers of the book to download, making this a complete safety review toolkit. Helps you to achieve compliance and avoid disasters: provides the checklists and best-practice guidance needed to negotiate the labyrinth of hazard analysis and safety review procedures Keeps your knowledge up-to-date: coverage of the latest forms of hazard analysis and safety review, including LOPA and Bowtie Saves time and money: demonstrates how each of the typically required reviews is related, so that information and conclusions used on one may be transferred or adapted for another

HAZOP Book Description :

These guidelines are intended to provide guidance on a specific technique developed for use in the chemical and process industries. This technique is HAZOP study - a detailed method for systematic examination of a well-defined process or operation, either planned or existing. ICI developed the HAZOP study method in the '60s and the CIA guide, published in 1977 encouraged development. Since then it has become, for many, the choice technique for hazard identification in new designs, processes and operations.

Fire Fighting Pumping Systems At Industrial Facilities Book Description :

Written from the perspective of industrial users, this is the only book that describes how to install an effective firewater pumping system in a pragmatic and budget-conscious way rather than with purely the regulatory framework in mind. Based on the wide-ranging industrial experience of the author, this book is also the only one that deals with the particular risks and requirements of off-shore facilities. This book takes the reader beyond the prescriptive requirements of the fire code (NFPA, UL) and considers how to make the best choice of design for the budget available as well as how to ensure the other components of the pumping system and supporting services are optimized. The only alternative to guides written by regulatory enforcement bodies, this book is uniquely practical and objective – demonstrating how and why the standards need to be met Covers a wide range of industries, including those with exceptional requirements such as off-shore petroleum facilities and chemical plants Written by someone who has been responsible for the safety of large numbers of workers and billions of dollars worth of equipment, for those in similarly responsible positions

Safety and Security Review for the Process Industries Book Description :

Drawing on decades of industry experience, well-known safety author and senior Loss Prevention specialist at Saudi Aramco Dennis Nolan has distilled the essential procedures and checklists into this practical guide. As well as guiding the reader through the selection and efficient and complete execution of the alphabet soup of Hazard Analysis and Safety Reviews (HAZOP, PHA, What-IF, SVA, LOPA, Bowtie...), Nolan shares his personal experience and illustrates otherwise dry procedures with real-world examples. Written from the perspective of the author's extensive experience in loss prevention and safety engineering, this comprehensive manual is intended to provide guidance on all the qualitative hazard analyses conducted for industrial and commercial processes, specifically for Preliminary Hazard Analysis (PHA), What-If, and Hazard and Operability (HAZOP) review teams. It also demonstrates how the methodology and procedures used for these reviews can be adopted and applied to the Security Vulnerability Analysis (SVA) and Site Security Plan (SSP), requirements under the US Department of Homeland Security's Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standard (CFATS) of 2007. The book's pragmatic approach describes the responsibilities, methods, and documentation required for the performance of such procedures and demonstrates how to conduct them in a timely, effective, objective, and consistent manner as may be prescribed by a company's Process Safety Management (PSM) policy and security requirements. As well as updates throughout to reflect changing practices, the third edition incorporates a new section on cost/benefit analysis and descriptions of new qualitative and quantitative safety reviews such as LOPA (Layer of Protection Analysis) and Bow-Tie (a graphical alternative to HAZOP) and a new chapter to address revalidation of studies/reports after 5 years. As well as providing invaluable personal insights from his career in the process industries, Dennis Nolan has also added

Human Behavior in Hazardous Situations Book Description :

Human Behavior in Hazardous Situations introduces a new generation within safety management, fully developed with neuropsychological insights, developed in collaboration with, and put to test by, the chemical and process industries. Until now, there has been little theoretical framework on how, and especially why, people behave the way they do in hazardous situations. Human Behavior in Hazardous Situations presents new theories, based on a human behavioral approach, to offer a fresh perspective on safety management. By way of case studies, practical tips and exercises, Dr Jan Daalmans demonstrates how this neuropsychological approach can be applied for those safety managers working in the Chemical, Process and Pharmaceutical industries. Presents new brain-based approaches to safety, with a historical perspective on the evolution of the safety management. Practical tips and guidance for those working in the chemical and process industries. Including exercises and case studies to demonstrate the practical application of techniques.
