At the March 1996 SIGTTO Panel Meeting, in Paris, AEA Technology presented a paper on the Principles of Risk Analysis. It described how pro-active risk management can be a very powerful tool to aid management decisions on safety, environmental and business investment.

This was followed, six months later, by a second paper by AEA, at the SIGTTO panel meeting in Melbourne. This specifically looked at risks associated with jetty operations and how this methodology could be used to determine the effectiveness and requirements for fire fighting equipment on jetties. Because it was recognised that there was not an internationally accepted standard, or set of guidelines, on risk mitigation appertaining to the provision of fire fighting equipment on LPG jetties, it was decided to commission AEA to undertake a study that fulfilled this need. The brief was to produce a document that used quantitative risk assessment (QRA), as opposed to a prescriptive methodology and could be understood by terminal staff who had not undergone formal training in the subject. Furthermore, it had to be capable of being translated into several languages, whilst still retaining its objectivity.

The paper presented describes the results of this work and gives an overview on how it can be used to:
• Reduce the potential for a fire to occur
• Reduce the impact of any fire that does occur
• Judge cost effectiveness of fire-fighting equipment

The book "A Risk Based Approach for the Evaluation of Fire and Safety Equipment on Liquefied Gas Jetties" will be published by SIGTTO early in 1999.
