Process Hazard Analysis (PHA) / Layers of Protection Analysis (LOPA) Consulting:

Functional Safety Engineering from Mangan

Mangan’s expertise in functional safety engineering extends to offering specialized PHA/LOPA consulting services, these being Process Hazard Analysis (PHA) and Layers of Protection Analysis (LOPA). Such proven methodologies are crucial in identifying, evaluating, and most importantly controlling hazards that might potentially impact safety and/or operation of your industrial processes.

01  PHA Consulting with Mangan

PHA (Process Hazard Analysis) is a systematic method for the identification and assessment of potential process hazards that might lead to catastrophic events. It is a critical part of the safety life cycle which helps in the identification of risks early in the design phase as well as during process modifications. The PHA consulting services process utilizes a comprehensive review of process design, operating procedures, and safety systems, which results in the identification of potentia; hazard scenarios and highlighting existing safeguards againts them.

02  LOPA Consulting Services

LOPA (Layers of Protection Analysis), conversely, is a semi-quantitative risk assessment method that builds upon PHA results. LOPA provides more detailed evaluation of risk scenarios that are identified in the PHA, assessing adequacy of the existing layers of protection, and then determining if any additional safeguards are required. Layers of Protection Analysis from Mangan aids in the assignment of Safety Integrity Levels (SILs) to Safety Instrumented Functions (SIFs), which guide the design of safety instrumented systems.
Experienced Mangan functional safety engineers guide their clients through the PHA/LOPA process provide expert PHA/LOPA consulting services and advice on the application of the methodologies, making sure that risks are both accurately identified as well as appropriately mitigated. They can also assist in maintaining your compliance with industry standards and regulations, such as IEC 61511 and ANSI/ISA 84.
