Keinem Ingenieur sollte ein Betrieb anvertraut werden, der nicht mit den reak tionstechnischen Voraussetzungen zur Entstehung und mit den verheerenden Auswirkungen entstandener Explosionen auf Menschen und Sachgüter und in der Umwelt vertraut ist. Gas- und Staub explosionen treten immer unerwartet auf. Die Anforderungen an das Verantwortungsbewußtsein aller im Betrieb tä tigen Menschen können wegen der vielfach tragischen Folgen von Explosionen nicht hoch genug gestellt werden. Es sind nicht nur technische, sondern, in starkem Maße, auch psychologische Probleme, die gelöst werden müssen, wenn den Explosionen und allen damit verbundenen Gefahren wirkungsvoll begeg net werden soll. Der Autor dieses Buches hat sein technisch-wissenschaftliches Wirken dem Explosionsschutz gewidmet. Dieses Buch, dem bereits zwei Bücher zum glei chen Thema vorausgingen, ist das des hervorragenden und engagierten Inge nieurs und Wissenschaftlers. Seine Arbeiten gereichen dem "Verein Deutscher Ingenieure", insbesondere der ,,YDI-Kommission Reinhaltung der Luft" zur Ehre. Denn der Autor hat nicht nur die technisch-wissenschaftlichen Erkennt nisse zusammen mit ebenso engagierten Kollegen erarbeitet und gesammelt, er hat sie auch im Rahmen von öffentlichen Veranstaltungen des VDI den Fach kollegen in Industrie und Wissenschaft vermittelt. Seine Arbeit galt und gilt dem Schutz des Menschen, den technischen Anlagen und der Umwelt. Gestützt auf die zum Thil mit großem Aufwand erarbeiteten technisch-wis senschaftlichen Grundlagen werden der vorbeugende und der konstruktive Schutz vor Explosionen brennbarer Gase und Dämpfe, brennbarer Stäube so wie hybrider Gemische aus diesen Stoffgruppen behandelt. Darüber hinaus werden Schutzmaßnahmen für besondere Apparate und Anlagenteile ausführ lich behandelt.

Written from the perspective of industrial users, this is the only book that describes how to install an effective firewater pumping system in a pragmatic and budget-conscious way rather than with purely the regulatory framework in mind. Based on the wide-ranging industrial experience of the author, this book is also the only one that deals with the particular risks and requirements of off-shore facilities. This book takes the reader beyond the prescriptive requirements of the fire code (NFPA, UL) and considers how to make the best choice of design for the budget available as well as how to ensure the other components of the pumping system and supporting services are optimized. The only alternative to guides written by regulatory enforcement bodies, this book is uniquely practical and objective – demonstrating how and why the standards need to be met Covers a wide range of industries, including those with exceptional requirements such as off-shore petroleum facilities and chemical plants Written by someone who has been responsible for the safety of large numbers of workers and billions of dollars worth of equipment, for those in similarly responsible positions

An encyclopedic, A-Z listing of terminology, Loss Prevention and Safety Control: Terms and Definitions addresses the need for a comprehensive reference that provides a complete and sufficient description of the terminology used in the safety/loss prevention field. Fostering clarity in communication among diverse segments within the field and between outside agencies, this book: Provides a reference for the background, meaning, and description of safety and loss prevention terms being used in government, industry, research, and education Contains two-paragraph descriptions of terms, photographs, diagrams, graphs, and tables to aid understanding of the subject, making it more than a dictionary Includes common safety terms, safety engineering aspects, a description of safety organizations, and a list of common safety standards and their scope The field of safety and loss prevention encompasses myriad unrelated industries and organizations, such as insurance companies, research entities, process industries, and educational organizations. These organizations may not realize that their terminology is not understood by individuals or even compatible with the nomenclature used outside their own sphere of influence. And even though fire protection and environmental professionals use identical and similar terminology, their meanings may be slightly different in selected applications. An all-encompassing reference, the book uses OSHA standards and interpretations as guidelines for the definitions and explanations. Drawing from the many areas that influence the terminology, it provides a basic understanding of the terms used in lost prevention and control.

Drawing on decades of industry experience, well-known safety author and senior Loss Prevention specialist at Saudi Aramco Dennis Nolan has distilled the essential procedures and checklists into this practical guide. As well as guiding the reader through the selection and efficient and complete execution of the alphabet soup of Hazard Analysis and Safety Reviews (HAZOP, PHA, What-IF, SVA, LOPA, Bowtie...), Nolan shares his personal experience and illustrates otherwise dry procedures with real-world examples. Written from the perspective of the author's extensive experience in loss prevention and safety engineering, this comprehensive manual is intended to provide guidance on all the qualitative hazard analyses conducted for industrial and commercial processes, specifically for Preliminary Hazard Analysis (PHA), What-If, and Hazard and Operability (HAZOP) review teams. It also demonstrates how the methodology and procedures used for these reviews can be adopted and applied to the Security Vulnerability Analysis (SVA) and Site Security Plan (SSP), requirements under the US Department of Homeland Security's Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standard (CFATS) of 2007. The book's pragmatic approach describes the responsibilities, methods, and documentation required for the performance of such procedures and demonstrates how to conduct them in a timely, effective, objective, and consistent manner as may be prescribed by a company's Process Safety Management (PSM) policy and security requirements. As well as updates throughout to reflect changing practices, the third edition incorporates a new section on cost/benefit analysis and descriptions of new qualitative and quantitative safety reviews such as LOPA (Layer of Protection Analysis) and Bow-Tie (a graphical alternative to HAZOP) and a new chapter to address revalidation of studies/reports after 5 years. As well as providing invaluable personal insights from his career in the process industries, Dennis Nolan has also added a wealth of new real-world examples, bringing the form-filling to life. And for the first time, the forms and checklists are available for purchasers of the book to download - making this a complete safety review toolkit. Helps you to achieve compliance and avoid disasters: Dennis Nolan combines his extensive personal experience with relevant industry examples to provide the checklists and best-practice guidance needed to negotiate the labyrinth of Hazard Analysis and Safety Review procedures. Keeps your knowledge up-to-date: Coverage of the latest forms of Hazard Analysis and Safety Review, including LOPA and Bowtie Saves time... and money: Demonstrates how each of the typically required reviews is related, so that information and conclusions used on one may be transferred or adapted for another. Also helps you avoid the fines associated with non-compliance, e.g. fines of up to $25k per day imposed by the Department of Homeland Security in the USA for non-compliance with the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standard (CFATS).

Störfälle in technischen Anlagen sind Zufallsereignisse; deshalb kann man sie nicht gänzlich vermeiden. Wohl aber lassen sich die Wahrscheinlichkeit ihres Auftretens und das Schadensausmaß verringern. Im Buch werden ausgehend von Gefährdungen durch Stoffe und Betriebsbedingungen mögliche technische und organisatorische Maßnahmen aufgezeigt, Gefährdungen zu mindern. Qualitative Analysemethoden zum Auffinden von Schwachstellen und zur Erhöhung der Sicherheit sowie Modelle zur Abschätzung von Störfallfolgen werden dargestellt. Die quantitative Bewertung der Wirksamkeit von Maßnahmen zur Verbesserung von Anlagentechnik und Sicherheit wird erläutert. Dabei spielen Unsicherheiten eine Rolle; sie folgen aus dem Zufallscharakter des Störfalls und aus Kenntnislücken bei einigen der zu behandelnden Phänomene. Der Leser wird mit Methoden der Störfallsimulation sowie Sicherheits- und Risikoanalysen vertraut gemacht und lernt, Möglichkeiten und Grenzen mathematischer Modellierung einzuschätzen. Als Grundlage sicherheitsrelevanter Entscheidungen wird die Risikoermittlung u.a. auf die Beurteilung der „funktionalen Sicherheit“ und die Bestimmung „angemessener Abstände“ zwischen Industrie und Bebauung angewandt. Zahlreiche ausgearbeitete Beispiele und Fallstudien realer Anlagen und Situationen vertiefen die Inhalte und erleichtern das Selbststudium.
