New safety evaluation methodology; A gold mining application

Moradi, F. and Bahri, P.A. (2009) New safety evaluation methodology; A gold mining application. In: 13th World Multi-Conference on Systemics, Cybernetics and Informatics (WMSCI 2009), 10-13 July 2009, Orlando, FL



Several safety assessment methods have been used to evaluate and improve safety in the process industries. Different methods have various approaches and may consider safety from different aspects and at different levels of the process design. Some methods may evaluate chemical and physical safety in the processes while some other methods analyse the failure risk associated with the processes. According to the importance of both aspects of safety, a method that can evaluate them concurrently and intervene in the early design phases would be of great importance. This paper presents a method with mentioned ability which is developed based on the inherent safety assessment and probabilistic risk analysis methods. This method is implemented on an industrial case using the Petri net modelling and safety assessment tool introduced by the authors in their previous work.
