Import HAZOP Data

May 9, 2007
The PHA exSILentia import utility is designed to import data from existing Process Hazard Analysis (HAZOP) study files into the vendor’s exSILentia Safety Lifecycle tool, providing significant analysis and life cycle cost benefits.
Until now, a manual transfer of data was required between products such as Dyadem’s PHA-Pro and Primatech's PHAWorks, which cover the Hazard and Risk Assessment phase of the Safety Life-Cycle, and exSILentia, which provides the SIL and LOPA functionality of the remaining Safety Life Cycle process. PHA Import captures all the relevant information from the HAZOP and ensures that all identified hazards and safeguards considered necessary to address them are evaluated, says the vendor. PHA Import offers the following benefits: SIF Cause-Consequence relationships are clearly identified and consistently recorded; SIF justification is traceable back to the PHA study; data transfer time is significantly reduced and human error eliminated; utilization of existing PHA applications to initiate the Safety Life-cycle; a standardization of HAZOP to SIL level determination across multiple plants; a documented audit trail for analysis and PHA Annual Review.
