To rank risk, we need a new tool. The best tool developed so far is the Hazard Identification Risk Assessment, or HIRA matrix.

`Event Tree Concept 1. Event trees begin with an initiating event and works towards a final result. 2. Or Event tree is an analytical technique for identifying and evaluating the sequence of events or possible outcomes in a potential accident scenario following the occurrence of an initiating event. 3. This approach is inductive 4. The method provides information on how a failure can occur and the probability of occurrence. 5. Various safety systems are provided at LPG Plants & terminals 6. It depends upon whether the design safety systems work properly or malfunction when needed. 7. The safety systems provided can succeed or fail 8. In essence the event tree approach includes the effects of an initiating event followed by impact of safety systems.

Event Tree Procedures 1. The event tree is written from left to right 2. The initiating event is written first in the center of the page on the left 3. A line is drawn from the initiating event to the first to the first safety function. 4. At this point the safety system can either succeed or fail 5. By convention a successful operation is drawn by a straight line upward 6. A failure is drawn down ward. 7. Horizontal lines are drawn from these two states to the next safety function. 8. If a safety system does not apply the horizontal line is continued thru the safety function without branching.

Event Tree Steps 1. Identify an initiating event of interest 2. Identify the safety functions designed to deal with the initiating event 3. Construct the event tree 4. Describe the resulting accident event sequences 5. Typically there would be 4-5 safety functions in the design 6. Any one might fail or succeed including operator action in time 7. The course event will follow thus dictated by success / failure of instrumented safety systems and/or operator intervention .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
