Dynamic Risk Pathways​

The industry’s first real-time Process Safety Digital Twin solution​.

Complex systems constantly change and migrate toward states of higher risk on a daily basis. But these changes can be gradual and hidden. Impairments, startups, shutdowns, permitted and non-permitted maintenance activities, MoCs and more contribute to dynamic risk changes. ​

PHAs, HAZOPs, bowties and other risk studies capture hazard-related information and identify needed controls and safeguarding barriers based on analysis at static intervals of time that could be months or years long. It would be time-consuming, expensive and difficult to manually capture changing situations on an ongoing basis.​

Yet for the safety and resilience of operations, organizations must clearly understand equipment, process, and operational conditions that could contribute to an incident, accident or near-miss at any moment in time. ​

Know where to intervene, what to prioritize and when to mitigate risk​

Sphera’s Dynamic Risk Pathways is the industry’s next generation of ORM Digital Twin technology to model and simulate risk exposure. It provides the real-time capture and visualization of causal risk pathways related to specific risk scenarios outlined in bowties, PHAs and other risk assessments.

Visualization and simulation capabilities help organizations map threat lines and manage exposure to top events and consequences, including progress toward loss of primary containment and control. ​

Give Process Safety an Edge

Dynamic Risk Pathways creates a digital replica of your asset and dynamically visualizes in real-time its process safety conditions and health status.

By utilizing the current status information from asset integrity inspections, process safety critical equipment IoT sensor data, maintenance and operational activity, and deviations from normal operating conditions (e.g. MoC’s Inhibits, Defeated Safety Devices, Process or Procedure changes, Drills, Incidents, etc.) operational teams are provided with a single, shared view of the health of safeguarding barriers and real-time risk impact on major accident hazard risk scenarios.

Turn Data into Actionable Insight

Dynamic Risk Pathways turns disparate data into actionable insight to improve operational decision-making helping organizations move from reacting to conditions as they arise to a much more predictive and proactive footing.

Dynamic Risk Pathways provide an early warning system as operators can see how impaired, degraded or even missing safeguarding barriers are increasing risk and the likelihood of a risk pathway developing into a near miss, incident, or even major accident hazard situation. With this increased visibility, organizations can improve maintenance prioritization, asset integrity, safety assurance and production uptime.

Make sense of technical safety information in dynamic operational environments – including threats and consequences identified in bowties – in a simple, clear way to aid decision-making.
