FIRE & EXPLOSION RISK ASSESSMENT (FERA)

What is Fire & Explosion Risk Assessment (FERA)

A Fire and Explosion Risk Assessment (FERA) is carried out to identify and evaluate fire and explosion occurrences linked to flammable stocks that could affect employees, buildings, and equipment. It is a system for determining and assessing fire and explosive risks in a structured and methodical manner. The findings are used to ensure safe facility layouts, specify passive and active fire protection requirements, and provide input for studies such as Escape and Evacuation Risk Assessment, Emergency Systems Survival Assessment (ESSA), Building Risk Assessment (BRA), and Quantitative Risk Assessment (QRA).

 The Fire and Explosion Risk Assessment Study (FERA Study) quantifies the likelihood of fire and explosion accidents, as well as their repercussions. The asset risks associated with incidents induced by Loss of Containments (LOC) will be quantified by FERA.

The objective of Fire & Explosion Risk Assessment (FERA)

        • All credible fire and explosion events linked to flammable stocks that could have an influence on the facilities must be analysed and objectively assessed.
        • To ensure appropriate recommendations for the design and operation of facilities in order to reduce the risk of fire.
        • To contribute to decisions about system and equipment design, the arrangement of primary areas and equipment, and the need for barriers.

The steps of Fire & Explosion Risk Assessment (FERA)

    1. Identifying any possible LOCs that could result in fire or explosion dangers on the premises.
    2. Identifying possible release types and fire/explosion scenarios such as pool fire, jet fire, flash fire, and explosion.
    3. Identifying the frequency of leaks associated with each fire/explosion scenario.
    4. Proposing new fire/explosion hazard management and mitigation methods for assessment as part of the ALARP demonstration process.
    5. Determining flammable inventory’s physical properties, such as volume, mass flow rates, pressure, and temperature.
    6. Developing fire/explosion characteristics, such as flame sizes, radiation distances, and explosion overpressure distances, for each of the identified fire/explosion scenarios
    7. Determining the potential escalation possibilities and effects of each occurrence, taking into account the suggested control and mitigation measures.
