Sphera’s robust, centralized Process Safety Risk Assessment software, configurable methodologies, and risk assessment workflows will help your organization standardize and record risk assessment data and ensure proper controls are in place. Ensure the safety of your processes with the support of our Process Hazard Analysis (PHA) software, which supports Hazard and Operability Studies (HAZOP) and “What If” methodologies. A deeper understanding to help manage risk is supported through our Layer of Protection Analysis (LOPA) and Bowtie tools.
- Identify and assess risk in a uniform fashion across your organization
- Ensure control measures are in place
- Analyze root causes and implement corrective actions
- Connect and understand interdependencies
- Report on performance
Our Advanced Risk Assessment Software for Process Safety Risk Comes Pre-Packaged with a Number of Templates:
Process Hazard Analysis
Process Hazard Analysis (PHA) provides visibility of materially impactful risks so your organization can make decisions and implement controls that improve the safety of its processes.
Hazard and Operability Study (HAZOP)
HAZOP is a highly-structured hazard identification technique that is appropriate for use in both design and operations stages of the facility life cycle. Proactive methodologies such as HAZOPs are essential for identifying and mitigating potential
Layer of Protection Analysis (LOPA)
The LOPA methodology analyzes the layers of protection applied to known hazards. It can be conducted alone but is usually preceded by a HAZOP or other form of PHA. Once a PHA is conducted, LOPA evaluates the layers of protection that are recommended to mitigate each hazard. It provides a middle ground between qualitative process hazard analysis and quantitative risk analysis.
Bow-Tie Risk Analysis
The Bow-Tie methodology is a qualitative risk assessment method that provides a visual representation of the causes of unintended events, likely outcomes, and measures in place to mitigate or control hazards. It is often conducted after an initial PHA and has been adopted in industries such as mining, oil & gas, chemicals, and pharmaceuticals. Due to its graphic nature, Bow-Tie analysis is easily understood by all levels of operations and management and provides critical information that allows you to improve the safety of your processes and make better business decisions.
