Involved in LOPA?  Sooner or later, you’ll run into a problem that has never before occurred in your plant. Find out what to respond.

In 60 minutes, you’ll learn how to develop a measure of the frequency or failure rate of an event when the historical information includes no occurrences of the event. You’ll identify methods based on statistical tools and compare the various statistical tools available. This webinar will also guide you in methods to incorporate historical information of no failure into a LOPA or QRA study. Examples will be provided to demonstrate how to apply the recommended methods to solve problems.

Take a look at your agenda:

  • How to handle events related to no failures
  • A comparison of various available statistical tools
  • Evaluating  historical information
  • Evaluating the quality of HAZOP and PHA studies used for the LOPA
