Analysis of Offsite Impacts of High-Consequence Events II


Morrison, D. R., Exponent, Inc.

The use of quantitative risk assessment (QRA) as an integral part of Process Safety Management has been steadily increasing in the last several decades, initially with a focus toward onsite events at fixed locations. The analysis of high-consequence loss events with offsite impacts involves more unknowns and broader concerns, as these events could originate not only within a facility but also along transportation routes. This session invites original papers that discuss key factors in the practical evaluation of the effects of high-consequence loss events to persons and the environment in surrounding areas, including methodologies for making informed risk-based decisions in these situations.
