Consequence Analysis

The request for a Consequence Analysis study to determine the impact of a potential chemical release to the environment has various drivers.  Proposed new equipment, a change in exposure limits or reportable quantities, or encroachment on previously open areas may require a new or updated study.

The Bath PSM methodology for a Consequence Analysis study focuses on comparing the extent of the potential release versus the toxicity limits or reportable quantities for the chemical in question.  This Consequence Analysis methodology includes:

  • Technical analysis of process operating data
  • Gas/Vapor Dispersion Modeling software utilized
  • Recommended installation height for gas detectors
  • Results via “Audit Proof” documentation for all point sources of emissions within the study scope
