Exponent staff has broad experience performing LNG hazard analyses, as well as qualitative or quantitative risk assessments for LNG plants.
Exponent has performed thermal radiation hazard distance calculations, for spills into impoundments as well as spills over water, using a variety of models, such as LNGFIRE3 and other variations of the solid flame model. Those jobs that present significant risk must be carefully analysed to ensure that hazards associated with the job are identified and the risk from those hazards are assessed. The first part of the risk assessment process is to list all the hazards associated with the job.
Hazards associtaed with undertaking maintenaince work on CCI Valves have been collected and are used in the CCI risk assessment.
Each of the risks for these hazards are then assessed and recorded in the risk assessment by the field service person. When the CCI technician begins work they complete a final risk assessment called a POWRA (Point of work risk assessment) to capture any changes or unidentified hazards.
The final part of the risk assessment process is to look at all those hazards that present a medium or high risk and to think about some additional things that could help to reduce the risk and therefore reduce the chance of an accident.
The process of risk assessment is an excellent way of identifying the type of risk that exists with the jobs that we do at work.
Because cancer and noncancer health impacts associated with environmental exposures generally cannot be directly isolated and measured, EPA scientists and others have spent more than two decades developing an extensive set of risk assessment methods, tools, and data to estimate environmental health risks.

EPA's framework for assessing and managing risks reflects the risk assessment and risk management paradigm set forth by the National Academy of Sciences (NRC) in 1983 [ , ], shown in Figure 1 below. Within the NRC paradigm, the evaluation of toxicity in a risk assessment is based on two sequential analyses. Once the level of risk is known, control measures can be put in place to reduce the level of risk. Using fire as a hazard, we can reduce the risk from fire by having fire detectors in place, by training people in evacuation and by providing properly maintained fire extinguishers and other fire fighting equipment. By taking a few moments to identify risk, we can prevent people getting injured or killed at work. Although significant uncertainties remain, this risk assessment methodology has been extensively peer-reviewed, is widely used and understood by the scientific community, and continues to expand and evolve as scientific knowledge advances. The NRC concluded that risk assessment and risk management are "two distinct elements" between which agencies should maintain a clear conceptual distinction.
The first is the hazard identification, which identifies contaminants that may pose health hazards at environmentally relevant concentrations, and qualitatively describes the effects that may occur in humans. A "Hazard" as defined by CCOHS, is any source of potential damage, harm or adverse health effects on something or someone under certain conditions.In order to give you a starting point we ask that every employee,review the "Hazard Identification and Assessment" and "Hazard Identification Checklist" articles in the "SMS Reference Information" area.
Once you enter the "Hazard Risk" it alerts the "Department" by e-mail as to the risk that you have assessed using the "Risk Matrix".The "SMS Reporter", will colour code your "Safety Report" to highlight it for the Department to which it was sent.

The lower the risk that a job presents, the less chance of an accident occurring from that job. The 1983 NRC report identified four steps integral to any risk assessment: 1) hazard identification, 2) dose-response assessment, 3) exposure assessment, and 4) risk characterization.
The second analysis is the human health dose-response assessment, which characterizes the relationship between the exposure to a pollutant and the resultant health effects. Factors such as the experimental route of exposure, the type and severity of the effects, the biological plausibility of findings, and the consistency of findings across studies all contribute to the hazard identification statement.
The NRC paradigm for risk assessment serves as the basis for OAQPS risk assessments under the air toxics program. Hopefully, it will not be a critical mistake and the pilot, engineer, or other staff member will slow down before entering that area of risk. Further details of dose-response assessment are provided in the web pages on risk assessment for carcinogens and non-carcinogens. In many of these cases, there were a few individuals who had known, of the potential hazardous actions and behaviors but did not say anything.
