SCOPE OF WORK

 

Fire and Explosion Risk Assessment Studies and preparation of reports for your facility shall consider hazardous materials, operational controls and engineering controls, and methodology includes nodes study, hazards recognition, safeguard evaluation, recommendations etc. Risk analysis shall be comprehensive which shall include all aspects your facilities or proposed facilities. The scope of shall include but not limited:

1.Identification of materials present and method of material selection

2.Identify the fire potential _

3.Assessment of consequences of fire

4.Establish possibility of ignition

5.Consider possibility of fire growth

6.Will a fire be detected

7.Determine the need for fire protection

8.What fire suppression systems present

9.Select appropriate fire protection

10.Communication and evacuation

Other Considerations:

1.Identification, screening and ranking of serious scenarios

2.Quantitative analysis for risk assessment

3.Consequence analysis of the various scenarios under study, with respect to dispersion of released fuel using fire & safety explosion index

4.Study of domino effects

5.Estimated areas affected by explosion/estimate impact distances

6.Probabilistic assessment of risks

7.Recommendations

8.Fault tree/event tree chart

9.Event analysis

10.Hazard category evaluation of hazard scenarios & evaluation of representative scenarios such as

11.Tank failure/leaks/overflow

12.Pipeline leaks

13.Pump mechanical seal leak

14.Hose failure

15.Vapour cloud explosion,  if burnt

16.Analysis using Dow index (Numerical derivation) for deriving base maximum probable property damage and exposure radius of such damage.

Consequence Analysis:

1.The consequence analysis shall be carried out using various simulation models to calculate the effect of leaks/spillage of flammable materials and the affected areas by dispersion of toxic release, if any.

2.Consequences analysis shall establish the extent of flammable clouds and damage zones for thermal radiations, over pressure and explosion. The extent of toxic emission will also be judged by dispersion calculation of vapor release and affected areas will be identified.

3.Damage circles showing the consequences of all credible hazardous occurrences shall be superimposed on the plot plan to show the area affected inside and outside the plant.

4.Risk reduction measures
