IH/OS Essential Toolbox Tools: What-If/Checklist & Qualitative Risk Analysis
Parvati Consulting LLC, Albuquerque, NM
The course is based on the principles and methodologies presented in “The Guidelines for Hazard Evaluation Procedures”, 3rd Edition (aka Redbook). The Redbook is a standard industry reference for hazard evaluation procedures published by the Center for Chemical Process Safety. This course provides an overview of the Redbook methodologies for performing Hazard Analysis and focuses on the What-If/Checklist technique along with a Qualitative Risk Analysis.
The What-If/Checklist technique combines the creative, brainstorming features of the What-If technique with the systematic features of the Checklist technique. The Qualitative Risk Analysis can be used in combination with many of the traditional Hazard Evaluation techniques described in the Redbook. The integration of a Qualitative Risk Analysis into the Hazard Analysis process helps to identify and address the unmitigated risk, mitigated risk, and adequacy of safeguards/controls.
This course uses interactive discussions coupled with videos presented by the Chemical Safety Board and Discovery Channel’s Engineering Disasters to illustrate how Hazards Analysis can help identify and avoid accidents. Instructors augment discussions with lessons learned reflecting a combined 40+ years of experience in system safety and hazards analysis.
