[Summary] Enabling Conditions and Conditional Modifiers in LOPA
The Guidelines in this book characterize when and how to apply enabling conditions and conditional modifiers to Layer of Protection Analyses (LOPAs). A LOPA may have consequences and risk criteria expressed in final endpoint (impact) terms such as fatalities or environmental damage, and include conditional modifiers such as probability of fatality associated with a material or energy release. It may also take into account probabilities called enabling conditions that sometimes apply to scenario initiating events. One way to differentiate these two factors is that enabling conditions are associated with the part of an incident sequence leading up to a release of hazardous material or energy, whereas conditional modifiers are probabilities generally associated with the post-release part of an incident sequence.
[Summary] Guidelines for Risk Based Process Safety
The purpose of the RBPS Guidelines is to provide tools that will help process safety professionals build and operate more effective process safety management systems. These Guidelines provide guidance on how to (1) design a process safety management system, (2) correct a deficient system, or (3) improve process safety management practices.
