* A multifaceted approach that includes the technical, social, human and management factors
* Includes numerous examples and illustrations from real life incidents

Description

Process Systems Risk Management provides complete coverage of risk management concepts and applications for safe design and operation of industrial and other process facilities. The whole life cycle of the process or product is taken into account, from its conception to decommissioning.

The breadth of human factors in risk management is also treated, ranging from personnel and public safety to environmental impact and business interruption. This unique approach to process risk management is firmly grounded in systems
engineering. Numerous examples are used to illustrate important concepts –drawn from almost 40 years authors’ experience in risk analysis, assessment and management, with applications in both on- and off-shore operations.

This book is essential reading on the relevant techniques to tackle risk management activities for small-, medium- and large-scale operations in the process industries. It is aimed at informing a wide audience of industrial risk management practitioners, including plant managers, engineers, health professionals, town planners, and administrators of regulatory agencies.

Readership

For health and safety professionals, government administrators and engineering professionals

Quotes and reviews

&qu: "A very thorough and outstanding book on a very important topic in process safety and loss prevention. Each chapter not only goes into good detail about the specific subject, but also contains a review of the chapter's contents, an excellent and extensive list of references (many of very recent vintage), and a notation list of acronyms used in the chapter. Most of the chapters have worked-out examples which can help to explain the topics discussed, as well as many useful tables and illustrative figures."
