Most risk systems today have risk matrices that are used for screening High-Risk events. Once identified, High-Risk events may require further analysis. Many books have been written on how to build Fault Trees and event trees to handle every eventuality. In the vast majority of situations effective Fault Trees and Event Trees that will give real answers in real facilities can usually be drawn by hand on a napkin. The key is to understand the critical inputs for the tools and be able to recognize a “reasonable” result. Knowing this allows the Safety Manager or Engineer to make a determination about whether the scenario requires more complicated or precise analysis.
This eight (8) hour presentation provides basic instruction in the use of fault trees and event trees to determine risk. In this class, participants:
