Process Hazard Analysis
Samarth safety uses PHA methodology as required under various phases.
The first phase of the analysis is dedicated to gathering all the applicable safety information about the materials handled, the chemical process and conditions, the control methods employed, and the equipment and systems’ use. The available safety information relevant to the targeted approachis gleaned from Safety Data Sheets (SDS’s), laboratory testing, design manuals, operating procedures, and equipment manufacturers/suppliers.
During the PHA exercise for each hazard identified, the team examines the existing safeguards that prevent or mitigate the undesired consequences in addition to proposing new measures should they be required.
The final critical aspect of the PHA effort is to provide adequate documentation of the analysis, its findings, and recommendations. A risk management plan must follow the PHA in order to ensure that effective follow-up and closure occurs.
We at Samarth safety are specialists in the entire field of process hazard analysis methods, including what-if checklists, hazard and operability studies (HAZOP), failure mode and effect analysis (FMEA), fault tree analysis (FTA), layers of protection analysis (LOPA) and more.
We assemble our teams under the guidance of an experienced and knowledgeable leader, composed of members with diverse experience and expertise, which helps deliver accurate solutions for your specific necessities.
Our thorough examination and research help in accumulating the necessary process safety information, including hazardous materials properties such as combustibility, flammability, explosively, reactivity, self-heating, toxicity, electrostatic properties, as well as assembling and leading the PHA team and drawing up reports and documenting outcomes.
We provide you:
- Identification of error sources and estimation of probabilities of occurrence
- Process safety specialists with a strong industry background
- Compliance with necessary regulations
- Internal workshops to train employees to manage risk and be effective PHA leaders
