How do you know if your process operates at an acceptable risk level? Process Safety is all about reducing risk. Find out what tolerable risk means, and how to employ layers of protection to reduce the inherent risks of operating a production facility to a tolerable level. Each of the layers – basic process control interlocks, operator response to alarms, safety instrumented systems (SIS), pressure relief devices and others – have their pros and cons, as well as specifications around use. Let’s examine the tradeoffs associated with these layers when employing a process safety program.
