Layer of Protection Analysis (LOPA) - Hamilton
16 May, 2017 - 17 May, 2017
Layer of protection analysis (LOPA) is a semi-quantitative tool for analysing and assessing risk on a process plant. It uses an order of magnitude technique to evaluate the adequacy of existing or proposed layers of protection against known hazards.
This course covers the basic methodology of LOPA and the detailed stages of its application. Participants are shown how to identify significant scenarios, estimate frequencies for the worst-case events and how to assign risk categories.
