Risk Assessment

Risk assessment has become an increasingly important tool in all areas of business. Risk Assessment is the process of analysing potential hazards and identifying sensible measures accurately to control the risks at the workplace. At KPB, we address human factors in relation to health and safety, aiming to optimize human performance and reduce human failures. We help our clients take a proportionate approach to human factors in risk assessment based on their hazard and risk profile.
Risk Assessment involves the following elements:

A) Quantitative Risk Assessment (QRA)

Quantitative Risk Assessment (QRA) is a formal and systematic procedure of identifying and evaluating the potential hazards associated with the operations of an engineering process and to demonstrate the risk lies in the ALARP (“as low as reasonably practicable”).
QRA is usually implemented on the basis of major technical hazards leading to potential accident occurrences by using measurable, objective data to decide asset value, probability of loss, and associated risk. A quantitative risk assessment also helps make cost-effective decisions while managing the risks for the entire asset lifecycle.
KPB has progressive experience in a wide variety of risk assessment and risk management applications. We have successfully carried out several risk assessment cases for various offshore and onshore oil and gas installations using very specialized software.

Main Objectives of a QRA Study:

Quantitative Risk Assessment process encompasses the following elements:

B) Fire and Explosion Risk Assessment (FERA)

Fire and Explosion Risk Assessment (FERA) is a structured and systematic process to identify and assess risks from fire and explosion hazards. The results of this assessment are used to ensure safe facility layouts, specify passive and active fire protection requirements, and to provide input for Escape and Evacuation Risk Assessment (EERA, Emergency Systems Survival Assessment (ESSA), Building Risk Assessment (BRA) and Quantitative Risk Assessment (QRA) studies.
Fire and Explosion Risk Assessment (FERA) comprises quantification of the probability of fire and explosion accidental events, and their consequences. FERA shall quantify risks to the asset associated with events caused by Loss of Containments (LOCs).

Main objectives of FERA include

A Fire and Explosion Risk Assessment includes the below steps:

C) Building Risk Assessment (BRA)

Building Risk Assessment (BRA) is a tool used to evaluate the risks to people in occupied buildings in the facility. It accurately measures the risk and identifies any improvements that are required to ensure that they are adequately safeguarded for any major accidental events.
At KPB Building Risk Assessment is carried out to assess the explosion, fire, and toxic release hazards using the three-stage process outlined by API RP 752. BRA Stage 1 and 2 involve the following steps:
