Analyzing Storage Terminal Risk During COVID-19 Work from Home

BakerRisk has the unique ability to use the results from facility siting studies (FSS) to enhance reviews of other critical safety systems throughout terminals. Consequence and risk-based FSS can support other technical safety studies such as fire and gas detector analysis, fire hazard and mitigation, and hazardous area classification. Other studies we have recently performed…

BakerRisk Webinar Series – Fire and Gas Detector Mapping

Historically, the placement of fire and gas detectors has been based on experience and judgment. Detectors placed following this approach may provide valuable data and alarms, but detector placement is inconsistent from site to site. Performance-based detector placement using established consequence models, wind direction data, and 3D object interaction provides an approach that can be consistently…

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)…
