Consistently identify, assess, and control the impact of Operational Risk.
Sphera’s robust, centralized Advanced Risk Assessment framework, configurable methodologies and risk assessment workflows will help your organization standardize and record risk assessment data and ensure proper controls are in place.
Process Safety Risk Analysis
Ensure the safety of your processes with the support of our Process Hazard Analysis (PHA) software, which supports Hazard and Operability Studies (HAZOP) and “What If” methodologies. A deeper understanding to help manage risk is supported through our Layer of Protection Analysis (LOPA) and Bowtie tools.
Occupational Risk Analysis
Identify and manage potential task-related occupational risks with the help of our Job Hazard Analysis (JHA)/Job Safety Analysis (JSA) tool.
Security & Vulnerability Analysis
Fortify your facility and cybersecurity with an improved approach to identifying vulnerabilities, producing and tracking recommendations and sharing information with key stakeholders.
Process Hazard Analysis
Process Hazard Analysis (PHA) provides visibility of materially impactful risks to improve the safety of your processes and to make better business decisions. As engineers and HSE experts consistently deploy PHA practices, they build a library of knowledge base for hazards, causes, consequences and risks. Sphera customers have reported high efficiency gains, time savings and data integrity benefits after disciplined execution of PHA processes.
Hazard and Operability Study (HAZOP)
HAZOP is a highly-structured hazard identification technique which is appropriate for use in both design and operations stages of the facility life cycle. Proactive methodologies such as HAZOPs are essential to identify and mitigate potential risks that can result in costly operational disruptions.
Layer of Protection Analysis (LOPA)
The LOPA methodology analyzes the layers of protection applied to known hazards. It can be conducted alone, but is usually preceded by a HAZOP or other form of PHA. Once a PHA is conducted, LOPA evaluates the layers of protection that are recommended to mitigate each hazard. It provides a middle ground between qualitative process hazard analysis and quantitative risk analysis.
Bow-Tie Risk Analysis
The Bow-tie methodology is a qualitative risk assessment method that provides a visual representation of the causes of unintended events, likely outcomes, and measures in place to mitigate or control hazards. It is often conducted after an initial PHA, and has been adopted in industries such as mining, oil & gas, chemicals and pharma. Due to its graphic nature, Bow-tie analysis is easily understood by all levels of operations and management, and provides critical information that allows you to improve the safety of your processes and make better business decisions.
Security and Vulnerability Analysis
Performing a Security & Vulnerability Analysis (SVA) helps to identify, analyze and manage the physical security vulnerabilities of chemical sites. Certain sites are required by regulators, such as Homeland Security in the US, to submit SVAs and safety plans.
Job Hazard Analysis
Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) also referred to as Job Safety Analysis (JSA) is a risk assessment tool used to review the occupational hazards associated with tasks/procedures expected to be performed in a facility or on site. With JHA, you can identify potential accidents and prevent them from occurring in the first place.
