QRA: Execution and Analysis of Results Using SuperChems™


Quantitative Risk Analysis (QRA) is a systematic approach for estimating the frequency of occurrence and associated consequences of hazardous events that may impact people, environment and/or businesses.

A proper QRA will take into close consideration the following key questions:

  • What can go wrong?
  • How likely is it?
  • What are the impacts?
  • Is the risk tolerable? And,
  • Which are the most appropriate safeguards?

This training course is intended to teach attendees how to conduct a full QRA (using SuperChems™) for a given facility that handles hazardous materials by answering the questions above by performing the following:

  • Hazard identification: introduction to Process Hazard Analysis (PHA) techniques
  • Frequency Analysis: introduction to Fault Tree Analysis (FTA), Event Tree Analysis (ETA), historical failure databases and industry guidelines; e.g., API 581, CPR18E
  • Consequence Analysis: source term characterization and consequence modeling (heat radiation, overpressure, and toxicity)
  • Risk Analysis: introduction and calculation of individual risk contours, societal risk FN curves, and blast loading parameters at given structure locations
  • Risk Reduction: analysis of QRA results and best risk reduction measures to be implemented.

Based on predicted risk results, a QRA helps propose the best risk reduction measures for minimizing actual risk level.

After participating in this training course, attendees will have the required knowledge for analyzing and understanding final QRA results. You will be equipped with methodologies and tools designed to minimize risk and optimize cost-effective mitigation measures.
