This presentation discusses key considerations for an organization to ensure their ERS system not only protects their facility, but also serves as a critical input into their process hazard analysis (PHA) process and other provisions of PSM (management of change, and pre-startup safety reviews, for example). Topics include implementing and managing a facility wide ERS design documentation project (a “flare study”), maintaining the ERS design documentation after the project, and effectively integrating the ERS design documentation into other elements of PSM.
- Understanding the importance of emergency relief systems (ERSs) design as a safety consideration for your facility
- Understand the "lifecycle costs” on your organization in order to effectively maintain the integrity of your ERS design
- Key considerations to effectively manage and implement an ERS documentation project
