BMT was invited by a large global financing and development institution to conduct a cumulative risk assessment of its three major industrial facilities in Nansha, Pearl River Delta, China and to review its industrial hazard risk management system.
The objective was to assist the company in fulfilling its safety philosophy founded on the need to effectively protect people and assets from potential accidents.
BMT carried out an on-site technical field review of the facilities which identified major risk items having potentially significant safety/environmental/financial impacts.
These findings were further refined following discussions with the customers' HSE department and the plant representatives.
- Baseline information was collected, then consolidated to compile a simulation model of the major hazard items identified. The simulation was done using internationally recognised simulation tools, PHAST and SAFETI.
Outcome and Benefits
In this assessment study, a number of potential hazard scenarios were identified.
Recommendations for reduction of risks were suggested and adopted.
The study also spotted areas of improvement for the existing ERP (Emergency Response Procedures).
Through this exercise, the customer obtained a clear and quantitative understanding of its safety level and received practical recommendations on maintaining its plant safety to an internationally recognised standard.
