PROCESS SAFETY
A variety of Process Safety tools are used to assess and manage the risk associated with the research operations at the BP Naperville Campus. Depending on the complexity of the operation and amounts of hazardous materials, one of the tools listed below be utilized.

The Site Policy on Risk Assessment and Management contains all the site requirements concerning risk assessment at all levels of operations.   A related Policy on Management of Change contains the site requirements for establishing a Management of Change procedure. 

The Site Technical Practices for Process Safety Design and Process Hazard Analysis can be accessed from the Engineering Assurance & Experimental Asset Services - EA2 website.

Historical archives and process safety performance records can be found on the Entity Process Safety SharePoint site.

PSM

Process Safety Management is a comprehensive process safety program covering all aspects of Process Safety. There is one process at this site covered by PSM. 

    • 300 Tank Farm, CEU-70, CEU-177, CEU-500 and interconnecting pipelines
      • For 300 Tank Farm - Barry Wood +1 331-702-7220
      • For CEU-70 (in 304) - Barry Wood +1 331-702-7220
      • For CEU-177(in 304) - Todd Kruse +1 331-702-7192 
      • For CEU-500 (in Haz Stor Shed outside 305) - Andy Ernst +1 331-702-7180

        (The 300 Tank Farm, et al. is INEOS Owned/Operated)

 

HAZOP

Hazard and Operability Studies are detailed assessments of our large Pilot Plants and Utility Operations in order to assure that the associated risks are identified and managed properly. These Studies are repeated every five years or more often if significant changes are made to the operating unit.   See the Criteria for a Formal Risk Assessment.

  • Call Nancy Stanford at +1 281-892-3931
PSR

Process Safety Reviews are conducted on pilot plants and certain laboratory operations prior to start up or when significant changes have been made to the operation. These reviews are conducted by a multi-disciplinary team and examine all aspects of HSSE in order to assist BU's in designing safe process equipment. The following tools should be utilized when preparing for a Process Safety Review:.

Additional Resource:  Entity Procedure for Design and Operating Limits

The BP Naperville Campus Process Safety Review Committee (BP PSRC) is available to review all BP pilot plant and laboratory operations. Review meetings are scheduled for every Tuesday morning.  Schedule for 2017.

BP Naperville Campus employees interested in requesting a process safety review are required to submit all necessary documents to Heather Abraham (+1 331-702-3304, Bldg.601, Desk 1115A) on the Monday before the week you want the PSR. Please contact Nadim Yaacoub  (+1 331-702-3154) if you have any questions.

 

PHSSER

This Group Engineering Technical Practice defines the process and detailed procedures to conduct a Project HSSE Reviews (PHSSERs) as referenced in GP 48-01.

The proposed framework for Project HSSE Reviews is aligned with the Capital Value Process (CVP). PHSSER is used for projects > $20 million.

Environmental Assessment

The environmental assessment is a screening tool to help identify operations that may require certain environmental actions. These could include, for example, obtaining a permit from the government, complying with a regulation, identifying a new waste disposal site or establishing a new waste minimization practice. The screening information is submitted by the researcher in charge of the equipment. HSSE conducts any follow-up as necessary.


PRA-ATO

The Process Risk Assessment Authorization to Operate (PRA-ATO) is a process risk management tool to asses and mitigate the process and operational risks associated with all research laboratories, research process units/equipment and site utility operations located at the Naperville Campus. The assessment serves as the basis for Management’s Authorization to Operate for the specified laboratory process, process operation or site utility operation. The PRA-ATO process risk assessment form (along with the accompanying guideline reference document) is intended to facilitate and document a discussion of the process and operational risks pertaining to the particular location between the responsible Line, Asset or Operations Manager and the user/operator.

A PRA-ATO process risk assessment team consisting of a minimum of two individuals with a maximum of three individuals should be assembled to complete this annual requirement. In addition, it is preferable that at least one PRA-ATO assessment member be from another area or business unit.

The PRA-ATO measures the following areas:

• Laboratory Process Health and Safety Information Binder (ISBL) or PRA-ATO (OSBL)
• Chemical Inventory Management
• Training
• Emergency Response and Incident Investigation
• Engineering, Administrative Controls, and Operational Integrity
• Additional Risk Assessments
• Management of Change

The PRA-ATO shall be conducted on an annual, bi-annual or tri-annual basis utilizing the forms below for ISBL (research labs, experimental operating units, and process-specific utilities) or for OSBL (site utility operations).  Guidance in the use of these forms is contained in the respective ISBL and OSBL Guidelines documents provided.  The Site Technical Practice for Process Risk Assessment  Authorization to Operate, NAP-STP ES66-13, is located on the EA2 website.

PRA-ATO Form (ISBL)            

PRA-ATO Guidelines (ISBL)  

PRA-ATO Form (OSBL)

PRA-ATO Guildelines (OSBL)

The completed PRA-ATO should be promptly entered into IRIS as an “Audit” in a consistent manner that includes all action items, responsible parties, target dates, and assigned approvers. The completed and signed (electronic signatures) PRA-ATO assessment form should be included as an attached file in the IRIS “Audit" record.
