Occupied Building Risk Assessment and Complementary Detailed Analysis Studies

October 15, 2020 | 2:00 - 3:00 pm BST

Occupied Building Risk Assessment and Complimentary Detailed Analysis Studies

UK operators must show that they have assessed the risks and implemented the necessary controls in line with the Control Of Major Accident Hazards Regulations (COMAH Regulations 2015). This requires the operator to prepare a safety report for the purposes of demonstrating that "major accident hazards and possible major accident scenarios, in relation to the establishment, have been identified and that the necessary measures have been taken to prevent such accidents and to limit their consequences for human health and the environment."

In this webinar, we will discuss the different Occupied Building Risk Assessment (OBRA) approaches and the benefit of undertaking further detailed analysis to compliment your mitigation/facility siting remediation strategy.

What We Cover:

  • Guidance on Occupied Building Risk Assessments and Facility Siting Studies
  • ABS Group's Regional Capabilities in CFD and FEA modelling to support UK Oil, Gas and Chemical Industry
