Independent Review of Risk Management Program for Proposed Plant Expansion Case Study


The Challenge

A world-class chemical company was involved in a project to triple the capacity of its fumigant plant to meet demand due to the phase-out of competing ozone depleting fumigants. The existing plant is regulated by several state and local agencies and the expansion project required permit approval in accordance with applicable laws and regulations. Certain agencies requested an independent review of the company’s risk assessment procedures and safeguarding systems for protecting the public from operational hazards.

Our Approach

Our staff teamed with an environmental consulting organization to review and critique the company’s risk management plan for the expanded facility. The ioMosaic team was comprised of several process safety engineers who routinely applied current state-of the-science risk management tools. We utilized our knowledge and experience with hazard evaluation and risk management to quickly review the practices employed by the chemical company and assess the quality of the results.

The Benefits

Our team was able to assimilate a considerable amount of project risk management information on an extremely fast track and prepare a critique of the quality and thoroughness of the risk assessment effort. Our assessment of the risk management activities applied to the project was incorporated into a report to local agencies.
