Abnormal Modes of Operation - When the Risk Is the Highest


Wincek, J., DEKRA Process Safety


Dalton, E., BASF Corporation

Several publications have stated that most significant incidents have occurred during abnormal modes of operation. Abnormal modes of operation include startup, shutdown, temporary operations, emergency, and maintenance activities. Yet much of the focus in process safety is during steady-state operation. Abstracts are sought that discuss the types of programs that are needed to manage these abnormal modes. Topics include what special techniques are used to analyze the hazards, implementation of special procedures and training, managing the slow creep of temporary operations becoming permanent, and any special surveillance and auditing programs.



Paper abstracts are public but to access Extended Abstracts, you must first purchase the conference proceedings.
