Om boka

Layer of protection analysis (LOPA) is a recently developed, simplified
method of risk assessment that provides the much-needed middle ground between a
qualitative process hazard analysis and a traditional, expensive quantitative
risk analysis. Beginning with an identified accident scenario, LOPA uses
simplifying rules to evaluate initiating event frequency, independent layers of
protection, and consequences to provide an order-of-magnitude estimate of risk.
LOPA has also proven an excellent approach for determining the safety integrity
level necessary for an instrumented safety system, an approach endorsed in
instrument standards, such as ISA S84 and IEC 61511. Written by industry
experts in LOPA, this pioneering book provides all the necessary information to
undertake and complete a Layer of Protection Analysis during any stage in a
processes' life cycle. Loaded with tables, charts, and examples, this book is
invaluable to technical experts involved with ensuring the safety of a process.
Because of its simplified, quicker risk assessment approach, LOPA is destined
to become a widely used technique.
