Questions related to Process Safety
I am looking for collaboration in writing a research paper; if anyone working in occupational safety, workplace accidents, Process safety, and nature of injuries & severity related areas please drop a message
I worked during the period 86-88 on self tuning control of a pressure control process.
The self tuning controller provided superior performance compared to PID controller in simulation and in real-time process control.
The main issues studied are the robustness of the parameters estimator, the handling of non-linear process model and oscillation detection to ensure the process safety in the case of large identified model error.
I don't know of many practical applications of self tuning control in the process industry.
Please advise if you know of any practical application case studies.
We are using scaffolding for working at inner surface of very large vessel which necessary to weld with vessel surface to avoid slipping or falling of scaffolding. Its not safe for any vessel.
Can any one suggest any safe process for this or other which safe for vessel and other safety.
Hi, I am working on identifying factors contribute to Oil and Gas pipeline owner reputation loss due to major failure i.e. explosion. I would like to connect with researchers who are in the same field as mine; pipeline risk assessment, for the purpose of sharing ideas and research collaboration in the future. Thank you in advance. :)
I am scoping a study that has specific questions related to predictive safety and maintenance, and supply chain performance model in real-time. Thanks to all.
Dear all, I am looking for the analysis of past accidents occurred due to process safety leading and lagging indicators. Therefore, I need the statistics regarding this. Kindly help me in this regard.
Dear all, I need a suitable approach/technique/method so that I may able to measure process safety leading & lagging indicators for improving safety performance of industrial site.
I want to eliminate the hazards associated with Process Safety Management (PSM) elements in process industries
Actually, I am a new Researcher in this field. Therefore, I need some best methods to do the Quantitative Analysis of Process Safety Leading Indicators.
Either a project is in design phase or in it operations, there is always a question how much a company is or should be willing to spend on safety. There could be following alternatives to answer this questions:
1. Compliance requirements
2. Accidents / near-misses during operations
3. Long term planning to avoid extra shutdowns in operations, and to optimize the safety with the operations
What do you feel likely to be undertake, and will there be other options as well?
Besides the common features of Safety Culture, what are the critical factors that makes safety culture specifically related to process safety different from other safety culture?
Training plays a vital role in PSM and an essential element of PSM. Training benefits are intangible. But to enhance the knowledge of PSM one needs to know the present level. Is any tool is used to identify?
How can we incorporate the effects of process variations and new process knowledge (e.g. process upsets and near-misses) into the consequence analysis?
