What Do You Mean I Can't Take Credit for that Relief Device in My PHA?

You are aware of the importance of Process Hazard Analysis (PHA) and relief systems evaluations that both evaluate what could go wrong and mitigate the hazards. But you may not necessarily understand the evaluation methods, rules, teams and ultimate results—they are different and confusing. Register now for this webinar to increase your awareness of evaluations performed at a site, how to leverage the similarities and understand and accept the differences, and why this is important.

Join this practical overview of both relief systems and PHAs. You’ll identify the similarities between PHAs and relief systems studies and the differences in methodology and results. You’ll also learn how to leverage both evaluations to improve both. This webinar delivers insights on so much more—from relief valves and risk assessment to improved safety practices, independent protection layer (IPL) and beyond. 

Don’t let the differences in these two evaluations create misunderstanding or prevent you from reaching your ultimate goal—mitigating hazards. Attend this webinar where you’ll increase your awareness of the how, what and why of risk evaluations performed at a site.

You’ll gain: 

  • An overview of both relief systems and PHAs
  • An understanding of how and why to leverage both evaluations 
  • A quick grasp of PHA and relief systems terminology
  • Greater awareness of the methodology for both evaluations 
  • The how-to’s of translating between your PHA and relief systems design basis 
  • Insight into when to credit a relief device as a safeguard
