Case Study - Risk Assessment Using LOPA

Industries that work with hazardous or potentially hazardous materials, such as the semiconductor industry, must remain constantly vigilant in order to prevent incidents resulting in loss of life or injury to people and damage to the environment or assets. As risk analyses and viable solutions can be complex, process safety experts are a company’s best resource for combatting hazards and safeguarding personnel and operations. Layers of Protection Analysis (LOPA) is a tool combining the expertise of process safety engineers with the knowledge of company staff to identify risks and customize safety measures in an efficient and effective manner.
