  • Essentials for confident and effective HAZOP participation.

    Finished Essentials for confident and effective HAZOP participation. WATCH REPLAY The intention of a HAZOP is to evaluate a design or an activity with the primary objective of identifying potential hazardous events and assessing the safeguards in place to prevent and mitigate these events. The outcome of a HAZOP can prevent accidents from occurring - and a bad HAZOP can fail to identify design flaws and hidden hazards. Its success depends solely on the contributions of the participants involved. Watch the replay of this engaging webinar where two of our HAZOP facilitators, Rikard Davidsen and Morten Nilstad Pettersen, share insights on how to shine as a HAZOP participant and give examples of pitfalls to avoid.

  • Barrier Management — ORS Consulting

    SERVICES Barrier Management Up Anchor 1 Barrier management is a framework for the identification of major accident risks and continuous risk management throughout a complete asset lifecycle. Integrity management ensures that systems, operational procedures, and organizations perform their function effectively and efficiently to avoid incidents and accidents. Integrity management comprises a variety of risk assessments, including barrier management, integrated design reviews, risk-based maintenance, and obsolescence management. ORS Consulting is a leading third-party integrity management solutions provider. We are helping businesses and facilities perform barrier strategy development, bow-tie analysis, risk-based maintenance and Integrated Design Review (IDR), amongst others. ​Barrier Management Related Studies Barrier Strategy Development Barrier strategy development involves establishing a strategy for how a project or asset operation will manage the accident risk, and to ensure that barriers are designed and maintained to ensure an acceptable risk level. Bow-tie Analysis Bow tie diagrams are powerful tools for managing major accident hazards and communication of key risk drivers. It typically involves creating a bow-tie diagram, which illustrates the chain of causes and consequences related to a hazard, and its barriers and mitigating measures. Performance Standards Performance standards are requirement specifications established for barrier functions or elements, as input for design and operation of a system. Among others, performance standards can give requirements related to reliability, maintenance and operability. Risk-based Maintenance Risk-based maintenance (RBM) is a maintenance strategy that prioritizes risk-sensitive systems and machinery, applicable for all industries. An RBM helps businesses to plan maintenance processes based on the probability of failure, possible effects (consequences), and calculated costs. Barrier Management System Implementation Barrier management system implementation involves establishing and maintaining barriers in a facility so that risks can be managed and operational excellence can be achieved. It involves establishing place technical, operational and organizational barriers against major accidents or incidents, and ensure that the barriers are maintained throughout the asset lifecycle. Optimization of Test Intervals The probability of failure of machinery or safety critical systems largely depends on the frequency of testing or preventive maintenance. Optimization of test intervals involves determining the optimum maintenance or test tasks that ensures high reliability, and at the same time minimizing downtime. Optimization of test intervals is typically performed in conjunction with performance monitoring of Safety Instrumented Systems. Obsolescence Management Obsolescence describes a situation in which a part, equipment, or service is no longer available even when it is still needed. Obsolescence management helps organizations to forecast, monitor, and plan when they are at risk of having obsolete parts, service, or equipment. It helps to reduce the risks associated with obsolescence. Root Cause Analysis Root cause describes a factor that caused a non-conformance in a system, component, or organization. A root cause analysis (RCA) is a problem-solving process that is used to identify these factors and provide approaches to preventing them. It may also provide means of responding to them. Integrated Design Reviews (IDR) Integrated Design Review (IDR) is a method used to scrutinize project interface, and is efficient for projects and assets with multiple stakeholders. This methodology focuses on the functionality of an integrated facility, and it aims to mitigate risks and ensure safe and efficient operations in these facilities. Risk-based Inspection (RBI) Risk-based inspection (RBI) involves quantitative and qualitative assessment of the probability of failure, possible consequences, and costs associated with systems and machinery. The information obtained from this assessment help business to determine design flaws and potential damages, as well as the location of possible dangers resulting from failures.

  • System Reliability and Availability — ORS Consulting

    SERVICES ​System Reliability and Availability Up Anchor 1 Reliability is a staple in most businesses. It is the probability that a component, part, system, or process performs correctly within a specified period. A reliable system is one that will function appropriately with a minimum need for maintenance or repair Most systems in facilities constitute interconnected components, with each component playing its role and helping to achieve a performance level. A system reliability assessment allows businesses to identify weaknesses of these components and quantify the impact of their failures on the overall system or process. ORS is a leading system reliability solutions provider. We are helping businesses and facilities with a wide range of services, including uptime and availability assessments, Fault Tree Modelling, among others. ​System Reliability and Availability Related Studies FMEA/FMECA FMEA (Failure Modes and Effect Analysis) and FMECA (Failure Modes Effects and Critical Analysis) are methodologies used to determine potential failure modes in a system and provide corrective measures for each failure mode. FMECA is similar to FMEA with regard to risk assessment and failure analysis. However, in addition to FMEA functionalities, FMECA ranks failure modes in order of severity. RAM Analysis RAM analysis is a method to define the production capacity and availability of a system to keep producing. This analysis involves a mapping of the different failure modes, frequencies, consequences, and their effect on production. RAM Analysis helps to reduce costs, debottleneck and provide input to spare parts and maintenance planning. Learn more > Production Assurance Production assurance describes the certainty of a facility achieving its production goals and meeting its intended end-results. End results may be customer expectations, the safety of a production process, or reduced production costs. Production assurance is particularly important within systems associated with oil and gas exploration and is introduced in ISO 20815:2008 standard. Fault Tree Modeling Fault Tree Modeling is a methodology used for conducting reliability analyses of complex systems. It involves creating a logical representation to model chains or pathways that can lead to failure or an undesirable loss event. It helps to keep systems safe and in desirable operating conditions. System Safety System safety is a risk management methodology that involves the identification and analysis of different hazards in a system, process, or facility. It also involves the provision of measures to eliminate or mitigate the effect of these risks. Among others, system safety is widely applied in the defence industry.

  • Functional Safety Assessment- Operations: waste of time or value creation?

    Finished Functional Safety Assessment- Operations: waste of time or value creation? How can your company get a greater value from conducting FSA Stage 4? What should you keep in mind for a smooth execution? What are the pitfalls to avoid? How do you avoid theoretical debates with no value creation? Join the webinar and learn more about our to-the-point approach for FSA Stage 4. WATCH REPLAY Functional Safety Assessments (FSA) typically include an in-depth assessment of all the activities, work processes, and documentation covering the applicable SIS Safety Lifecycles. In addition to extensive documentation review, interviews and site surveys are also usually a part of FSAs. Depending on how it is executed and by whom, FSAs can be a very theoretical, and time-consuming exercise or a value-adding, to-the-point assurance activity. It can cause a significant impact on the asset owner since the asset owner needs to demonstrate evidence that the IEC61508 & IEC 61511 requirements are fulfilled. Over the years, ORS has accumulated significant experience based on the performance of FSAs for early design-, detailed design-, commissioning & construction as well as operational phases of complex- and safety-critical assets. How can your company get a greater value from conducting FSA Stage 4? What should you keep in mind for smooth execution? What are the pitfalls to avoid? How do you avoid theoretical debates with no value creation? Join the webinar and learn more about our to-the-point approach for FSA Stage 4.
