Risk Management Program (RMP) – Offsite Consequence Analysis

Process Safety Management in UAE

Offsite Consequence Analysis prepares organizations for worst-case and alternative-release accidents/incidents thereby enabling them to potentially assess the damage and impact which the community-related organizations and institutions would also be facing in case these actually happen.

Moreover, under the Risk Management Program of EPA, the facilities with large quantities of very hazardous chemicals are required to prepare and implement programs to prevent the accidental release of these chemicals and to mitigate the consequences of any release that do occur.

CEIC provides the following services:

  1. Steps for Performing the Analysis including:
    • Worst-case scenarios for toxic gases, toxic liquids and flammable substances
    • Alternative-release scenarios for toxic gases, liquids and flammable substances
  2. Determination of the quantities involved in Worst-Case Scenarios
  3. Determination of release rates for Toxic Substances, including toxic gases, liquids and solutions
  4. Determination of distance to overpressure end-point for flammable substances
  5. Determination of distances to end-point for alternative scenarios for flammable substances including:
    • Vapor Cloud Fires
    • Pool Fires
    • BLEVEs
    • Vapor Cloud Explosion
  6. Integration into existing management systems in the organization
  7. Trainings

Security Vulnerability Assessment (SVA)

The first step in the process of managing security risks is to identify and analyze the threats and the vulnerabilities facing a facility by conducting a Security Vulnerability Assessment (SVA). The SVA is a systematic process that evaluates the likelihood that a threat against a facility will be successful and considers the potential severity of consequences to the facility itself, to the surrounding community and on the energy supply chain.

The objective of conducting a SVA is to identify security hazards, threats, and vulnerabilities facing a facility, and to evaluate the countermeasures to provide for the protection of the public, workers, national interests, the environment, and the company. SVA is a tool to assist management in making decisions on the need for countermeasures to address the threats and vulnerabilities.

CEIC provides the following services:

  • Assets Characterization
  • Threat Assessment
  • Vulnerability Analysis
  • Risk Analysis/Ranking
  • Identification of Countermeasures
  • Follow-up to the SVA
  • Security Trainings
