Quantitative Risk Assessments (QRA) Managing Chemical Process Risk

Risk to business, people, workplace, and the environment can arise from industrial/manufacturing processes that do not follow predicted behaviour. The standard approach to chemical process safety, is to apply risk management systems theory.

This includes recognition of the hazards posed by the process, and a continual effort to analyse the risks and to reduce or control them to the lowest levels practicable, while balancing other business objectives.

Quantitative Risk Assessment (QRA) is widely used in the process industry to assess the impact of loss of containment events on the plant and its surroundings. Key design modifications and economic decisions are taken based on the outcome of the study. It is the preferred method of hazard evaluation based on numerical estimation of incident frequency and consequences.
