65 LOPA and the Process Safety Lifecycle

Monday, April 27, 2015: 3:30 PM
17AB (Austin Convention Center)
Description:
Layer of Protection Analysis (LOPA) has become a popular risk assessment tool since an early methodology was published in the 1993 CCPS publication, Guidelines for Safe Automation of Chemical Processes 1. This session solicits papers which detail experiences and/or best practices that get to the practical application of LOPA and how it fits into the process safety lifecycle. Specifically, what has been experienced and/or what best practices have been established for going from LOPA through design, installation and maintenance of Independent Protection Layers (IPLs). The goal of this session is to aid practitioners in their use of this powerful and popular tool.
