BakerRisk’s expertise in explosion and fire modeling, equipment vulnerability, frequency calculations, and risk calculations allows us to provide unique insight into your Business Interruption (BI) risk drivers. BI risk examines the financial risks associated with downtime, product loss, lost revenue, and other operational inter-dependencies. Our BI methodology supports a tiered approach from high-level screening of site-wide risk drivers to progressively finer levels of detail, which can be explored from a site or company level perspective.

BI studies often arise from questions regarding potential business losses. However, previous assessments such as facility siting studies (FSSs) or quantitative risk assessments (QRAs) can be leveraged to expedite the analysis. Our state-of-the-art software programs allow us to efficiently analyze a wide range of accident scenarios and business interruption targets. These tools, as well as the vulnerability data for key pieces of equipment and buildings, are supported by BakerRisk’s extensive testing programs and experience in incident investigations.

Deliverables are tailored to your specific needs to support your decision making framework. Risk results are provided in the form of frequency-dollar (F$) curves and tables that identify high risk scenarios or equipment/buildings that incur high risk. If intolerable levels of BI risk are identified, BakerRisk will work with you to reduce BI risks by brainstorming creative ways to minimize losses and reduce recovery time estimates.

Changes in Facility Siting Standards: API 752, 753, & 756

In industries where the daily risks of potentially catastrophic events, such as vapor cloud explosions, are a constant concern, there’s no room for compromise – inherently safer design principles, effective hazard identifications and analyses, and adherence to up-to-date industry standards aren’t just important, they’re essential. Since its establishment in 1919, the American Petroleum Institute (API)…
