PostedTuesday, April 5, 2016 at 9:39 PM

The authors will present examples to illustrate this process and how different models affect the results. Hazard scenarios to be presented include leaks from flammable storage and transfer systems resulting in outdoor vapor cloud explosions as well as explosions within a building. Through these examples, differences in hazard impacts will be presented. Various likelihood references and resultant risk rankings will be shown. Based on these risk rankings and a tolerable risk criteria, proposed safeguards necessary to close a gap will be described. Presenting information in this manner allows the site leadership team to better allocate resources more effectively in minimizing facility siting risks.
